                                Stunning house

                                Rothay Lodge is amazing. The kitchen is superb with every piece of equipment you could wish for. The bedrooms are very comfortable and having all the bathrooms was a great bonus. Panoramic views all round and a beautiful garden.

                                We (me, my two brothers and our children) stayed here as we were going to a wedding in Grasmere. We absolutely loved the house and its location. We are hoping to go back soon.

                                A great place to stay

                                5 of 5
                                We had a most enjoyable stay in Chapel Stile. The house was comfortable, clean and well equipped, with easy parking and a great view. The third bedroom (with bunk beds ) is fine for children but not ideal for 2 adults. Friendly sheep came up and visited the front garden every day. The shop a few minutes away has everything we needed. Of course the setting in Great Langdale is exceptional , brilliant fell walking on the doorstep.
