The property

Nestling in the heart of picturesque Elterwater village, near Chapel Stile, this traditional stone-built cottage, St Giles, has much to offer the Lake District visitor and will make an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful walking and majestic scenery in the surrounding Langdale area. There is much to challenge the serious walkers with some of the finest high fell walks easily accessible in the central fells and for easier days you can enjoy delightful riverside rambles, two good pubs and various tea shops within walking distance. Chapel Stile (about 1 mile) has a well-stocked village shop with everything for your holiday needs. Accommodation: This interesting cottage is a conversion of stables belonging to the former (19thC) Gunpowder Works. Front door entrance via a few steps up to new patio area and then a further couple of steps into the entrance hallway where there is space for outdoor gear. Two steps down lead into the open plan kitchen/sitting dining room (open fire, Wi-Fi, TV, DVD) which has pleasant views from its south facing window. There are two ground-floor bedrooms accessed from the hallway, a Twin and King and a useful shower room (shower, basin and WC). Upstairs you will find a comfortable double-bedded room with interesting roof lines and pretty views across the valley. The family bathroom has a bath, hand-held shower, basin and WC. St. Giles is homely without being trendy; inviting and well-equipped for holiday use, whilst retaining much of its original character. It has been popular for many years with those looking for a central location from which to explore the National Park and to enjoy the fine scenery in any season of the year. Outside: Patio area with seating to the side of the house. Parking: Guests can park either on the road in front of the garage or tucked in immediately in front of the property front door. Pub approximately 100 yards, local bus stop in the village, village shop half a mile. Choose St Giles for a countryside escape to Cumbria.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £50.
