St Giles

Elterwater, Langdale Valleys

Ref: 2002

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Changeover: Friday


Nestling in the heart of picturesque Elterwater village this traditional stone-built cottage has much to offer the Lake District visitor and will make an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful walking and majestic scenery in the surrounding Langdale area.

There is much to challenge the serious walkers with some of the finest high fell walks easily accessible in the central fells and for easier days you can enjoy delightful riverside rambles, two good pubs and various tea shops within walking distance, or simply relax in the pool at the nearby Langdale Club. Chapel Stile (about 1 mile) has a well stocked village shop with everything for your holiday needs.

Accommodation: This interesting cottage is a conversion of stables belonging to the former (19thC) Gunpowder Works. Front door entrance via a few steps up to new patio area and then a further couple of steps into the entrance hallway where there is space for outdoor gear. Two steps down lead into the open plan kitchen/sitting dining room (open fire, Wi-Fi, TV, DVD) which has pleasant views from its south facing window.

There are two ground floor twin bedrooms accessed from the hallway and a useful shower room (shower, basin and wc). Upstairs you will find a comfortable double bedded room with interesting roof lines and pretty views across the valley. The family bathroom has bath, hand-held shower, basin and wc.

St. Giles is comfortable without being trendy; cosy and well equipped for holiday use, whilst retaining much of its original character. It has been popular for many years with those looking for a central location from which to explore the National Park and to enjoy the fine scenery in any season of the year. Guests can enjoy inclusive membership (for 4 persons) of the nearby Langdale Leisure Club which is within walking distance - extra daily passes are available from the club at £15/£20 per adult per day or £10 per child (15 and under) per day.

Outside: New patio area with seating to the side of the house. Parking either in the garage or just in front.  Pub 100 yards, local bus stop in the village, village shop half a mile.
