A picture-perfect Lake District cottage in a rural village setting, with breathtaking views from every window. Polly’s Cottage is a 17th century, double fronted, Lakeland cottage in the Langdale Valley village of Elterwater. The interior is an adorable combination of character features and contemporary comforts. Fall in love with the Inglenook fireplace, old oak beams, original range stove and enchanting window seats.
After a day on the fells, settle in for the evening with the wood burning stove flickering away before taking your rest in one of the beautifully presented bedrooms. The country kitchen provides a perfect place for sociable meals, and your local pub is one of the Lake District's best. Two couples will spread out easily here, and families will enjoy a perfect location for an active holiday.
