About Caroline

I just love the lakes and have furnished my comfy cottage with care. Hope you will love it too!

Caroline purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Caroline chose Ambleside

I just fell in love with this modern cottage because it is SUCH a lovely place - who could resist!!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location! Views all around. My heart just lifts as I turn onto the little road leading to the Langdale Valley.

Spectacular walks from the door - no need to use a car!

And such a cosy sparkling boudoir room to snuggle in - then draw back the curtains in the morning to find the spirit soars just like the mountains

nice place in a stunning location and delightful village

  • 4 of 5

generally good value for money although one bathroom for up to 6 adults is not really adequate. no complaints though.

Owner's Response: I'm glad the guests enjoyed their stay. I did point out that the house is basically for 4 and has only 1 family bathroom so not really suitable for 3 couples....

Loved our stay! The location of the cottage was perfect: beautiful scenery, trails, sheep, coop, bakery, and pub all within close walking distance. Other trails and quaint villages are 5-30 minutes drive. The cottage has a well-equipped kitchen, easily sleeps 4 adults. The 3rd bedroom with bunk beds is on the lower level, 2 floors down from the bathroom and other bedrooms so it may/may not be ok for some children. No wifi (loved that!) TV didn't work but DVD player works great so we watched a couple movie.

Shabby not chic, and cold

  • 1 of 5

We were really looking forwards to staying in a cottage with our toddler on his first proper holiday. When we arrived the place was freezing and it is not a cottage, it's a modernish terraced townhouse split over three levels. The interior and furnishings are shabby. The ground floor houses the garage and a basement room with bunk-beds and tiny slit window. It was absolutely freezing down there but our toddler was excited to stay in a bunk bed so we let him try it out. It was far too cold and he woke in the night upset and freezing cold so we had to get him up and move him into one of the single beds in the upstairs room and my wife had to stay with him to settle him. All part of the experience we thought until the landlady of this property then withheld our deposit because we had used more than three beds. In fact the landlady even accused us of having more people stay in the property! After explaining the situation to the landlady Caroline, she said she would 'split the difference'. No mention of extra charges based on the number of beds slept in was made prior, or anything at all to do with which beds we could sleep in and which we could not. I really couldn't be bothered arguing so I agreed to 'splitting the difference', and then the landlady even short changed me from that agreement by 2.50!

My advice based on our experience is to find somewhere else to stay!

Owner's Response: When my housekeeper went to clean she told me that at least six people must've stayed because all beds had been used and there was a lot of rubbish. The website clearly states that there is an extra charge for use of the bunkroom, and had this been booked for heating would've been on before arrival. Jake booked a weekend for a couple and a child. I am surprised that parents would put a toddler on a different floor using a room they considered to be cold when there was a warm room available right next to the parents bedroom. However I returned half the deposit as agreed

Great place, lovely house! Great location and the village is great too. There was 5 adults and at no point did we feel cramped at all. Haven't got a bad thing to stay about the place, we all loved it!

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.

A comfortable cottage in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean, warm, and comfortable and had everything we needed. It was perfect for 3 of us. The location is wonderful, with great views and great walks from the door. There is a handy village shop open 7 days a week, plus one pub very close and another less than a mile away. No WiFi or phone signal, but this is usual in locations like this, and the digital detox did us good. It's a 10-minute drive to Ambleside for shops and restaurants, if you want them. Note that there is only 1 bathroom/toilet which might be tricky for larger groups, and no washing machine, but this cottage offers a good deal at the price. The owner is friendly and helpful.
