Elterwater, Langdale Valleys

Ref: 2041

  • Sleeps: 4

Ideally located in the centre of the small village 'Elterwater' this quaint cottage offers a real Lakeland Cottage experience.  A Newly renovated modern interior combined with a true sense of history, Quarryman's Cottage offers both families and couples a comfortable homely stay with fell walking, climbing and plenty of outdoor activities straight from the front door. Elterwater makes a great place to stay right in the heart of the Lake District with some of the finest high top walks close by. Keen walkers will love the ascents of the Langdale Pikes, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and even beyond to Scafell Pike or Great Gable. For easier days you can explore the valley, laze in the pool at the Langdale Leisure Club and wander the riverside footpath to Skelwith Bridge and the famous Chesters tea shop and gallery.

Accommodation: The cottage is built on two floors with the ground floor set as an open plan, beamed sitting/dining with a comfortable cosy cottage feel (log burner in feature fireplace, flat screen TV, Freeview, DVD, Blu-Ray,  Wi-Fi).  Hall and Stairs at the end of the lounge lead to the first floor with its delightful king-sized double en-suite room (shower over bath, basin and wc), with a second king en-suite (Shower, basin and WC) both bedrooms with woodland views.

Furnishings throughout are comfortable and tasteful offering a warm welcome in any season.

Outside: Raised patio area to the rear.  Parking for two immediately in front to the property no need to use the car again during your stay. All village amenities are within a few minutes stroll. Elterwater is home to the famous Britannia Inn, Quarryman's cottage is lucky enough to be right next door, (discount of 10% off restaurant meals) a very popular place to eat and drink throughout the Lakes. The nearest shop is in Chapel stile (1 Mile), Ambleside 4 miles.
