This rather luxurious Lake District cottage in Chapel Stile village is
a walkers' paradise at the heart of the Langdales. Lakeland slate on
the outside, lovely mountain and village scenes through almost every
window, and a sympathetic refurbishment off-setting old oak beams with
crisp decor and chic slate floors.
Contemporary comforts spread over the three floors; sumptuous cottage
bedrooms, sleek designer bathrooms and a top floor lounge with a newly
installed woodburning stove and a sizeable, furnished, south-facing
balcony for lazy summer brunches or just a cool place to chill out
after those hard days on the fells. Active families will have no need
to use their car, couples will relish the romantic location and cosy
evenings by the woodburning stove and all will be glad of the short
walk to the Good Pub Guide listed Wainwrights Inn.

This superb rural cottage in the Langdale Valley enjoys a picturesque
setting in the village of Chapel Stile. Chapel Stile is located at the
head of the valley, only 4 miles from Ambleside and Lake Windermere,
and providing endless access to low and high level walks in the
Langdale Valley. These are some of the most photographed landscapes in
the Lake District, and you'll soon see why.
Chapel Stile village itself has a small shop, a cafe and an acclaimed
Lake District country pub, The Wainwrights Inn. Stroll further into the
Langdale Valley and you'll find the peaceful atmosphere and spectacular
views continue... with a few more noteable pubs on the way.
This location is an obvious choice for a walking holiday in the Lake
District; hike to England's highest tarn, or take on the spectacular
Jake's Rake ridge as you tick off the famous Langdale Pikes; Harrison
Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Loft Crag. The adjacent Wasdale and
Borrowdale Valleys bring more superb routes within easy reach, and are
traditional starting points for an ascent of Scafell Pike.
A holiday cottage in the Langdale Valley will have a blissfully remote
feel, but those who wish to explore will find Ambleside, Coniston,
Hawkshead, Grasmere and Windermere within easy reach.
