Nestled in the pretty Langdale hamlet of Chapel Stile, this 19th Century chic Lakeland retreat takes a picture-postcard setting overlooking the Langdale Valley. This sleepy village is an ideal base with an abundance of walks straight from the door.

The space
Step inside Fountain Cottage and you'll fall in love with the traditional character and instantly soak up the contemporary luxuries of a meticulous restoration contrasting the old oak beams, thick walls and stone floors with crisp modern decor.

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 furnished, south-facing balcony for lazy summer brunches or just a cool place to chill out after those hard days on the fells.

Lakeland slate on the outside and lovely mountain and village scenes through almost every window.

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.

Although this luxurious Lake District cottage is an outdoor lovers paradise, for those who want to just relax and be pampered the Cottage benefits from inclusive leisure club facilities for 2 adults at the nearby Langdale Country Club. The Club offers a well equipped gym, swimming pool and sauna.

Come rain or shine whether you are looking for outdoor activity or a peaceful romantic retreat Fountain Cottage offers it all.

Location

Chapel Stile, United Kingdom

Chapel Stile
This superb rural cottage in the un-spoilt Langdale Valley enjoys a picturesque setting in the village of Chapel Stile. Chapel Stile is located at the head of the valley and, although has a blissfully remote feel, those who wish to explore will find Ambleside, Coniston, Hawkshead, Grasmere and Windermere only 4 miles away. The Cottage provides endless access to low and high level walks in the Langdale Valley, 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 LangdaleValley and you'll find the peaceful atmosphere and spectacular views continue..... with a few more notable 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 Jack's Rake up Pavey Ark as you tick off the famous Langdale Pikes; Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Crinkle Crags, Bowfell, Loft Crag. The adjacent Wasdale and Borrowdale Valleys bring more superb routes within easy reach, and are traditional starting points for an ascent of England’s highest summit, Scafell Pike.

The Langdale Valley
The Langdale Valley is the quintessential Lakeland location and Chapel Stile offers an ideal base from which to explore. With beautiful hamlets such as Elterwater, Little Langdale and Chapel Stile all to explore and breathtaking views around every corner the Langdale Valley is unique.

If you want big imposing summits to conquer there is no shortage to be found at the head of the Valley, all with names that conjure up the spirit of Wainwright and the Lake District. The Langdale Pikes, Pavey Ark, Crinkle Crags and Bowfell are all close by. For those who prefer a more relaxing ramble rather than serious mountains the Valley will not disappoint as it boasts a wealth of lower level routes where you will find unmatched panoramas to charm you at every turn.

If Mountain Biking is your thing then the area offers a huge range of interconnected bridleways to explore and if this isn’t enough only a short drive away (or if you are really energetic a 10km ride) is Grizedale Forest with its network of bridleways, forest roads and, the “piece de resistance”, the infamous North Face Trail.

Whatever you are seeking in the Lake District the Langdale Valley will not disappoint.

Belinda and I live in the Lake District . Belinda is a Chiropractor and I am retired. We are passionate about the outdoors and spend all of our free time walking, mountaineering, mountain biking , climbing and running. We came to the Lakes for many years before moving here and fell in love with the beauty and solitude the Langdale valley offers in all seasons. Having fallen in love with Fountain Cottage in 2012 our vision was to create a luxurious home away from home, a place to relax and forget about the stresses of everyday life and not just another holiday cottage. Fountain Cottage is a fantastic base with easy access to the Langdale Valley and the Southern Lakes which offers endless opportunities for exploring and experiencing the majestic Lakeland scenery.
