A few minutes walk brings you to the shops, restaurants, pubs and the lake.
“This is a truly cosy, comfortable house with loads of character. The location is perfect, in the middle of the village overlooking a paddock of grazing sheep and the hill side. The grocery store is a short walk away as is everything else. Loads of walking trails on the doorstep. Couldn't have been better.”
A 1 bedroom characterful cottage in Chapel Stile, Langdale in the Lake District national park. Ideal for a romantic getaway or for those who enjoy exploring the fells with numerous walks from the door.
“Bank View cottage is very stylish and cosy. We had a great time staying here. The location is great, very easy to get to the surrounding areas such as Ambleside, Coniston, Grasmere etc. We recommend the food at The Britannia Inn, which was delicious. On arrival there was a top 10 pub walks book which we used all week and completed 4/5 walks from it, this was a nice touch. We used the facilities to cook some evenings too, it was all very easy to use, pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc all provided. Overall, the cottage is very stylish and enjoyable to be in, in the beautiful Lake District. We would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.”
