  • “Great cottage in fabulous location.”

    The day before we left, many of the cottages ran out of water and when we left our pressure was extremely low and most probably ran out later that day. May be worth telling guests that water comes from a natural source that may dry up!

The property

Just as sweet as the name suggests, this chic Lakeland retreat takes a picture-postcard setting overlooking the Langdale Valley. This historic row of cottages was built in 1860, close to the sleepy village of Chapel Stile with its handy shop and excellent country pub. Step inside Honeypot Cottage, and you'll fall in love with the traditional character but instantly soak up the contemporary luxuries of a meticulous restoration. Families & Couples can cosy up by the woodburner after a day spent walking in the valley, there is a sophisticated cottage kitchen, and the master bedroom is a real treat with French antique bed, traditional window shutters and an unforgettable view to the surrounding mountains.== Accommodation in detail Enter to the traditional lounge with superb fell views, original slate floor, woodburning stove and luxurious leather furnishings. The designer kitchen / dining room is perfectly formed and finished with granite, leading directly onto the fell through a rear door. The luxury house bathroom is on this level, with shower over bath. Upstairs to the romantic king-size bedroom with French antique brass bed, traditional shutters and a superb outlook. The second bedroom is also beautifully furnished, with a double bed. The garden is a large shared open lawn with views to the Langdale Pikes. Location This fabulous self-catering holiday cottage in Chapel Stile is a rare treat for walkers and lovers of natural beauty. Opening directly onto the fell at the back, you can start walking from the cottage without stepping onto a road. The woodland alongside is home to native birds. The cottage is in the heart of the stunning Langdale Valley. There is no need to use the car all week, if you prefer not to. There are walks from the door in every direction: down the valley to Elterwater, Skelwith Bridge and Loughrigg fell; over the back fell to Grasmere; up the valley to Dungeon Ghyll and the Langdale Pikes, Bowfell and Blea Tarn; across the valley to the Lingmoor Fell, Little Langdale, Weatherlam and Coniston. The back path into the village of Chapel Stile takes you through the old slate quarry, where the quarrymen, for whom the Lingmoor View cottages were built, once worked. Whether you are into leisurely strolls, skimming stones, spotting wild flowers or day-long hikes, you will be spoilt for choice. A pleasant first outing might be a walk to the Three Shires pub in Little Langdale past the magic coin tree. Or follow the valley down through Chapel Stile and Elterwater as far as Skelwith Bridge, (stopping for wonderful cakes or fabulous vegetarian pizza, chips and salads at Chesters by the River). Alternatively, take the flat, peaceful, central path beside Great Langdale Beck up the valley to the National Trust's Sticklebarn, renowned for its fabulous food and beer, offering guided wildflower walks in July and with a bird hide and multiple bird feeders (at the back). The Old Dungeon Ghyll walkers' bar, at the head of the valley, can be reached across the fields or on the fell-side path. You'll find perfect places to soak up the remote and unspoilt scenery. In Chapel Stile village, just a few minutes' walk away, the Co-op general store is worth repeated visits. Guaranteed a friendly welcome, you can buy all you need in terms of fresh food, drink, cards, books, and newspapers, or visit the café upstairs for gorgeous cooked breakfasts. Also well work a visit are the historic church, with its millennial tapestry. and the village pub. Wainwright's Inn has flagged floors, real Lakeland ale, cosy open fire and a quiz night. As with most of the local pubs, they do a fast trade in hearty meals. There is also good food to be found at the Britannia Inn in Elterwater. Despite its remote beauty, Chapel Stile village is only 4 miles from Ambleside, a vibrant Lakeland village on the northern shores of Lake Windermere. There you'll find sophisticated shops, acclaimed Lake District restaurants, plenty of choice for an evening out and tempting delis for stocking up the kitchen. Ambleside's tourist information centre is also a useful port of call. From Ambleside at Waterhead Pier, you can take a steamer cruise on Lake Windermere to visit Bowness or Lakeside - two other popular Lake District holiday destinations. Grasmere, with its celebrated gingerbread and the Wordsworth Museum, and Hawkshead, home of Beatrix Potter, are easily accessible by car.
