    “We cannot fault the time that we had at Slaters Rest, we certainly came away devastated as we wanted to stay longer.”

    The cottage had everything that you needed and the presentation of the property was excellent. Bathrooms and kitchen were high spec, so much more than you would need for a holiday. The location was second to none with essential facilities nearby, pubs and shop. Arrival information was adequate and so we were settled very quickly.

    The cottage had everything that you needed and the presentation of the property was excellent. Bathrooms and kitchen were high spec, so much more than you would need for a holiday. The location was second to none with essential facilities nearby, pubs and shop. Arrival information was adequate and so we were settled very quickly. The weather was fantastic, gorgeous blue skies one day and then thick crisp snow the next. So picturesque which just added to the brilliant time. We truly recommend this property and will certainly aim to return again. The only slight negative was the broken window in the front door. When we enquired about it we were reassured that the owners were aware of it and it was safe.

    Thank you for your review, I’m so pleased that you had a lovely holiday and that Slater’s Rest had everything you needed for an enjoyable break. The broken glass in the front door was caused by storm damage immediately before Christmas so has taken a little longer than normal to fix, but we are hoping that it will be replaced in the next few days. There is a temporary fix in place so it is secure, and we did ask Lakelovers to inform you of this before your arrival so I’m sorry if this did not happen. We hope to welcome you back to Slater’s Rest at sometime in the future. Property Owner

The property

This former quarryman's cottage is a walker's dream in the Langdale Valley, part of a terrace overlooking the valley to the Langdale Pikes. The setting is sublime, only minutes from the sleepy village of Chapel Stile where an excellent pub restaurant, general store and stunning old church are waiting to be explored. Pets are welcome in this charming little retreat, full of traditional character yet lovingly restored to provide comfort and calm - away from the rush, relaxed and welcoming after a day on foot on the fells. You'll find a contemporary dining kitchen for sociable meals and a cosy lounge with open fire. The bedrooms are both a treat with inspiring mountain views and one has a large ensuite complete with bath, perfect for a long soak after a day outdoors. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Enter to the cosy lounge with magnificent views and a warming open fire. The modern kitchen / dining room is well-equipped for daily meals, with a door leading outside and providing direct access to the fell behind. The wet room is also on this level. Up some narrow stairs to the two bedrooms; one has particularly fine views over the valley, whilst the other has a luxurious ensuite bathroom with fellside views. Outside you'll find a shared garden area, perfect for morning coffee or sunset drinks. Location Chapel Stile is a small village in the picturesque Langdale Valley, just 4 miles from Ambleside yet immersed in peaceful, untouched landscapes. You'll find a wealth of walking routes for all abilities in every direction. From leisurely strolls to Elterwater tarn, to challenging routes on the famous Langdale Pikes. From your Chapel Stile holiday cottage, a pleasant first outing takes you down the peaceful road running into the Langdale Valley, arriving at the 'Old Dungeon Ghyll' walkers' bar. There you'll find the perfect place to soak up the remote and unspoilt scenery for the first time. Ambleside is the ideal place to stop off and stock up the kitchen on your way. The vibrant village centre is also well worth a few day visits; lazing in cafes, visiting historic sites such as the roman fort, or strolling to the shores of Lake Windermere to take a lake cruise to Bowness or Lakeside. Ambleside tourist information centre is a useful port of call for walking routes, and there are plenty of expert outdoor stores where advice will be on hand. You'll find a plethora of excellent Lake District country pubs in the Langdale Valley, serving locally brewed ale and hearty food. If you're looking for a special evening out there's a wide choice of restaurants in Ambleside just a short drive away.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

It encompasses the two villages of Chapel Stile and Elterwater, as well as the hamlet of High Close. Set in the centre of the Lake District, Langdale is probably best known for its mountains, from the Langdale Pikes – a group of mountains on the northern side of the village – to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Rock climbers will also love Raven Crag, Gimmer Crag and White Ghyll. There Not surprisingly Langdale is also famous for it’s spectacular views, including Dungeon Ghyll Force Waterfall, Harrison Stickle and Pike of Stickle. it is an extremely popular holiday destination and loved by hikers, climbers, fell runners and lovers of the outdoors in general.
