  • “I have already sent an email regarding dust on surfaces and under beds, about two bedside lamps not working, and about a dimmer switch already being broken (we found it under a bed).”

    These are besides the hot water not working when we got up one morning and it being difficult to contact you because no one was available until 9 am, then I was on hold after the automatic menu was too quiet to hear. ...

    These are besides the hot water not working when we got up one morning and it being difficult to contact you because no one was available until 9 am, then I was on hold after the automatic menu was too quiet to hear. The photos of Le Chalet and the virtual tour really made it look better than it was: the view from some rooms was non-existent ( a white wall/ a skylight only, and one room with a high, tiny window). It also needs a better range of cookware such as saucepans if 12 people are being cooked for, and the dining table could not reasonably accommodate more than eight people. So... all in all, Le Chalet was disappointing.

About the location


Great Langdale 2.9 miles; Ambleside 4.2 miles; Grasmere 8.2 miles.

Elterwater is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A tranquil hamlet with its tiny ‘swan lake’, Elter Water, sitting at the gateway of the striking Langdale valley. The soft valley landscape is in sharp contrast to the steep jagged Langdale Pikes. Elterwater sits between Ambleside and Great Landgale, where at the top of the valley the infamous Wrynose Path is the only way out of the u-shaped valley, giving it a superb sense of seclusion. The larger towns of Grasmere and Ambleside are a short drive away providing a host of options for shopping and eating out.
