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 England

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

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.

Stunning setting!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as described in the most beautiful setting I've ever stayed in. The views from the cottage were stunning and the walks are good - and straight from the doorstep.

The village has good facilities including a well stocked little shop, which even sells basic walking equipment. You can get a good breakfast in Brambles cafe and they made up sandwiches for me and my family to take away for our walks.

Wainwrights Inn is a nice cosy pub serving good food and we all enjoyed the roaring fire in the evenings.

Caroline was very helpful and patient when we were planning our holiday, and even recommended local places to eat from her own experience.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable and we were all very sad when it was time to go home. I would definitely recommend the property to friends and family.

A weekend away.

  • 5 of 5

Modern, spotlessly clean, superb location with parking 6 paces from back door/ off road. Ambleside, Wndemere & Bowness a relatively short drive with Grasmere a scenic route drive over the tops. Local pub & store/ cafe approx 5 mins walk from accommodation. For the more adventurous head up the Langdale Valley for low to high level walking &/ or rock climbing. Finally, the owner, Caroline is quick to respond to queries by e mail , although one may need to leave the valley base to obtain a signal.

Car: recommended

The famous Langdale Pikes are a stroll up the river along the valley. Or go down the valley past Eltermere and the waterfall to Skelwith Bridge. You can also walk over the hill to Grasmere with its Wordsworth connections. Chapel Stile has its own friendly shop, café, pub, church & the Langdale Country Club with fitness centre & pool where you can have a spa day if the weather is bad

Well placed to tour the National Park and cultural sites. Renew your love of Beatrix Potter, Wordsworth and Arthur Ransom
