  • “House was plenty warm enough, comfortable and good for 3.”

    Bathrooms recently redone and are very nice, upstairs bedrooms nice. Location is absolutely superb with walks from the door up and down river, and up onto the hills behind the house. A very short drive also takes you to many other fab walks or to Ambleside for a bit of shopping. Decent pub a couple of mins walk. ...

    Bathrooms recently redone and are very nice, upstairs bedrooms nice. Location is absolutely superb with walks from the door up and down river, and up onto the hills behind the house. A very short drive also takes you to many other fab walks or to Ambleside for a bit of shopping. Decent pub a couple of mins walk. Lounge sofas are not very comfy and a few lightbulbs need replacing. It also looks like the soil pipe from the loo next to the kitchen has a wee leak outside. If I owned the place, I'd be tempted to get an architect in to look at remodelling the middle level, opening it up a bit to create more space and light - depending on planning restrictions it could be super fab! All in all, a well located, comfy place and good value too.

About the location

CHAPEL STILE

Ambleside and Grasmere 4.5 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 9.5 miles.

A delightful, rural village nestled right in the heart of the beautiful Lake District National Park. Chapel Stile is an excellent hidden gem, set at the bottom of a stunning valley, flanked on one side by the River Brathay, surrounded by incredible scenery and filled with wonderful slate and stone buildings. The village offers a traditional church from the mid 1800's as well as a café, a pub and a village shop that has stood for well over 100 years. Chapel Stile is a great base for exploring this National Park, with easy access to a number of sights and fells worth visiting. You must go to the lovely neighbouring village of Elterwater and stand on the Skelwith Bridge and simply take in the views. Nearby are the fantastic Lake District towns of Ambleside and Kendal are withing a short driving distance, offering excellent views, buildings and so much to do. For you outdoors people, make sure you visit Bowness-on-Windermere, with its incredible lake activities and so much to do; it's perfect for families.
