    “Very comfortable stay in a great location.”

    2 things to bear in mind: the fridge is very small - one of those your nana used to have with a little freezer compartment at the top - so don't bother arriving with a big shop of food that needs refrigeration or a freezer; the other thing is parking - it's perfectly doable as there's a layby on the same side of the road as the cottage about 150 yds up toward the village shop. We were able to park there throughout our stay no problem. Use the local bus service if you want to pop into ...

We were able to park there throughout our stay no problem. Use the local bus service if you want to pop into Ambleside for shopping - much more convenient than faffing about parking etc (and we have a blue badge). If you do go food shopping in Ambleside and you're not a vegetarian we highly recommend Garside butchers - first class. Lovely walks nearby and v dog friendly. Thank you.

    Dear Paula, I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Weir Cottage, and many thanks for your positive feedback. I thoroughly endorse your comments. Elterwater and Chapel Stile are becoming increasingly popular with day visitors, so I would strongly advise not using your car during your stay. There are numerous fabulous walks right on the doorstep, and there is a well stocked village shop and some great pubs within easy walking distance. If you do decide to venture further afield, please do use the local buses. They are reasonably priced compared to parking charges, and very frequent. For the more adventurous, linking bus journeys with walks is such a great way to experience this beautiful part of the Lakes. Property Owner

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 noteable 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
