The property

This rather luxurious Lake District cottage in Chapel Stile village is a walkers' paradise at the heart of the Langdales. Lakeland slate on the outside, lovely mountain and village scenes through almost every window, and a sympathetic refurbishment off-setting old oak beams with crisp decor and chic slate floors. Contemporary comforts spread over the three floors; sumptuous cottage bedrooms, sleek designer bathrooms and a top floor lounge with a newly installed wood burning stove and a size able, furnished, south-facing balcony for lazy summer brunches or just a cool place to chill out after those hard days on the fells. Active families will have no need to use their car, couples will relish the romantic location and cosy evenings by the wood burning stove and all will be glad of the short walk to the Good Pub Guide listed Wainwrights Inn. == Accommodation in detail Large entrance with flagged floor and space for outdoor gear. Upstairs to the Shaker kitchen / dining room with fabulous view, and the modern lounge with newly installed wood burning stove, smart TV and Blue Ray DVD and French doors to the furnished balcony. The double bedroom with luxury power shower en-suite, smart TV and DVD is on the entrance level, together with the stand alone bathroom. A flight of stairs lead down to the twin bedroom with outdoor access. This luxurious Lake District cottage is an outdoor lovers paradise. Outside there is a large shed for secure storage of bikes and parking for 1 car directly outside the cottage with further parking close by. Location This superb rural cottage in the Langdale Valley enjoys a picturesque setting in the village of Chapel Stile. Chapel Stile is located at the head of the valley, only 4 miles from Ambleside and Lake Windermere, and providing endless access to low and high level walks in the Langdale Valley. These are some of the most photographed landscapes in the Lake District, and you'll soon see why. Chapel Stile village itself has a small shop, a cafe and an acclaimed Lake District country pub, The Wainwrights Inn. Stroll further into the Langdale Valley and you'll find the peaceful atmosphere and spectacular views continue... with a few more notable pubs on the way. This location is an obvious choice for a walking holiday in the Lake District; hike to England's highest tarn, or take on the spectacular Jake's Rake ridge as you tick off the famous Langdale Pikes; Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Loft Crag. The adjacent Wasdale and Borrowdale Valleys bring more superb routes within easy reach, and are traditional starting points for an ascent of Scafell Pike. A holiday cottage in the Langdale Valley will have a blissfully remote feel, but those who wish to explore will find Ambleside, Coniston, Hawkshead, Grasmere and Windermere within easy reach.

About the location


Often referred to as Great Langdale, to distinguish it from nearby Little Langdale, Langdale's name comes from the Old Norse for 'long valley'. Langdale is a u-shaped valley formed by glaciers. It encompasses the two villages of Chapel Stile and Elterwater, as well as the hamlet of High Close. Set in the centre of the Lake District, Langdale is probably best known for its mountains, from the Langdale Pikes – a group of mountains on the northern side of the village – to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Rock climbers will also love Raven Crag, Gimmer Crag and White Ghyll. There Not surprisingly Langdale is also famous for it’s spectacular views, including Dungeon Ghyll Force Waterfall, Harrison Stickle and Pike of Stickle. it is an extremely popular holiday destination and loved by hikers, climbers, fell runners and lovers of the outdoors in general.
