A fantastic base to explore the beauty of the south lakes

An ideal base for exploring the Langdale Valley, Bluebells enjoys a slightly elevated setting in the charming village of Chapel Stile. Great views can be had from this modern-day retreat and some of the best walking in the area can be enjoyed right from the front door. Wainwright’s Inn is a popular haunt with locals and tourists alike as are the equally renowned Old Dungeon Ghyll, Sticklebarn and Britannia Inn, all offering a warm welcome when you’ve walked up an appetite and thirst!

Respond to Bluebells

  • Rachel says:

    Bluebells is in a fantastic location with beautiful views from the living room (when the clouds clear at least!). We enjoyed walks up and down the Langdale valley directly from the doorstep and could have easily made it into Ambleside on foot if the weather had been dryer! The local shop and pub are welcoming and well stocked with essentials. We did find the accommodation itself quite compact though so would suggest no more than 2 adults for a comfortable stay.

  • James says:

    Very well equipped, wonderful view and a perfect location for the Langdale area walks.

  • Fiona says:

    A beautiful location to visit Windermere, Grasmere, Coniston… A clean compact cottage. Parking available but have to carry suitcases etc up and down steps to street.

  • Michael says:

    Lovely place in a perfect spot for walking from.

  • Jenny says:

    Vey cosy cottage, small but with everything that one might need. We did not use the upstairs but downstairs was plenty for 2. The kitchen was well equipped and the heating, hot water was plentiful. We had some beautiful walks and these could be structured to personal fitness! Many thanks,

  • Phil says:

    We had a fantastic few days in what is a very well-looked after property in a brilliant location for long Lake District walks. The property was very clean and had everything we needed (the kitchen, in particular, was very well stocked – necessary as there’s very few food options on the doorstep). Can’t wait to come back.

  • Tony says:

    very well equipped, with everything you think you could possibly need. outstanding location. enjoyed our stay very much

  • Alison says:

    Incredible location for walking (Langdale Pikes and Scafell Pike easily acccessible). Also great for cycling and running. The accommodation is really comfortable and well equipped. Definitely recommended.

  • Jessica says:

    Good location, great communication and easy check-in/out. Cleanliness of the property could be improved.

  • Rob says:

    “Cosy wee cottage, well placed for pub, shop and fells.”

  • Maggie says:

    Great location with fabulous views

  • Aleksejs says:

    “A nice river to walk by, mountain hiking paths starting in a few minutes drive, a pub and grocery store in the village. A fantastic view out the window! Even if it rains one can still enjoy mountains while staying inside. The kitchen is very well arranged and has a variety of equipment. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. Dishwasher and washing machine help a lot. Tap hot water is often lukewarm, but the shower is hot all right.”

  • Hannah says:

    Comfortable accommodation in a fantastic location for exploring the central Lake District. Amazing views from the front of the house.

  • Georgia says:

    Location is perfect for exploring the Lakes. You can walk to the local shop and more than one pub. Swimming / walks all on the doorstep. Near enough to Ambleside. Couldn’t be better. We’ll be back!

  • Matthew says:

    Great location, spotlessly clean place, great communication and an overall perfect experience

    A great little place to explore Langdale and the surrounding Lake District from. The place was spotless on our arrival, and the host was very responsive to any queries we had.

    “The place is set in a great location in the Langdale valley. Nearby pub served well for evening meals with a good selection of beers. Accommodation had everything needed, was warm and comfortable. Thanks”

    Great location if you love the Langdale Valley. Nice accommodation with everything you need including kitchen and utilities, games TV and modern easy to use heating system. One radiator didn’t work but host turned up immediately with portable heater for that room.
