    “We loved the location of the cottage as the area is beautiful.”

    There are many walks from the door step, and a pub a 2 min walk away.

The property

Close to the banks of the River Brathay in the Langdale Valley, this traditional Lakeland cottage, with a rather more contemporary interior, has an enchanting outlook towards the ancient river bridge. River Bank presents a perfect 'getaway' opportunity at any time of year; cosy up by the woodburning stove in winter or dine al-fresco in the private garden in summer. The interior is just modern enough to feel special, without losing the character of the property. Your local community is Skelwith Bridge - a brilliantly located village at the entrance to the Langdale Valley. You'll have easy access to the honeypot villages of Ambleside, Grasmere, Coniston and Hawkshead. A much-envied bolt-hole! == Accommodation in detail Enter to a useful boot room, then the crisp kitchen with the full range of modern appliances. Through to the spacious living/ dining room with woodburning stove, bold red leather sofas and substantial dining table. Upstairs to king-size double bedroom with river outlook and fitted wardrobes. House bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle. Upstairs again to the nautocal themed twin room with river views. Outside, the private rear garden is furnished and a delight for al-fresco dining and barbeques, there is also a small front garden with a stone seat with river views. Location Away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps, Skelwith Bridge is a great location for a Lake District cottage holiday. Between vibrant Ambleside village, Lake Windermere and the breathtaking Langdale Valley, guests here are free to enjoy all of Lake District life. Some of the most famous Lake District walks begin on your doorstep; including challenging routes in the Langdale Pikes, Loughrigg and the tarn, or peaceful strolls on the shores of nearby Elterwater. If you'd prefer a leisurely holiday, spend your days strolling gently in the Langdale Valley and sampling the excellent country pubs in the area. Find classy shopping in Ambleside, and enjoy an elegant lake cruise on Lake Windermere - all within very easy reach. Your location just off the A593 makes exploring the wider reaches of the National Park a breeze. For example; follow the road back to Ambleside and the shores of Lake Windermere, then north to Rydal Water and Grasmere, or follow the A593 south to picturesque Coniston.
