    “The location was fantastic, a wildlife paradise.”

    The kitchen was very well equipped. Unfortunately there were a few other issues, cobwebs hanging from the ceiling in the main bedroom, the bathroom had black mould growing on the panels, the shower door leaks so much the bathroom floor floods and the plug still doesn’t fit the bath. The boiler noise was the worst.. like a dragon waking up from 3:30am through to 7am … ruined our sleep each night.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry to hear you had issues with the bathroom and the boiler noise. The owner has now replaced the bathroom and also the noise was the water tank heating the water at night but the water tank has now also been removed. We hope you wish to return in the future to see the improvements to the property. - The owner relations team. Property Owner

About the location

CHAPEL STILE

A delightful, rural village nestled right in the heart of the beautiful Lake District National Park. Chapel Stile is an excellent hidden gem, set at the bottom of a stunning valley, flanked on one side by the River Brathay, surrounded by incredible scenery and filled with wonderful slate and stone buildings. The village offers a traditional church from the mid 1800's as well as a café, a pub and a village shop that has stood for well over 100 years. Chapel Stile is a great base for exploring this National Park, with easy access to a number of sights and fells worth visiting. You must go to the lovely neighbouring village of Elterwater and stand on the Skelwith Bridge and simply take in the views. Nearby are the fantastic Lake District towns of Ambleside and Kendal are withing a short driving distance, offering excellent views, buildings and so much to do. For you outdoors people, make sure you visit Bowness-on-Windermere, with its incredible lake activities and so much to do; it's perfect for families.
