A Superb, Rural Retreat Set in The Beautiful Langdale Valley

Daffodils is a super holiday retreat occupying a slighted elevated position in the heart of the picturesque Langdale Valley. Enjoying superb views out towards Lingmoor Fell and the Langdale Pikes from the front. The location is ideal for friends and families of walkers and cyclists, whatever your ability, with a wealth of routes right from the doorstep.

The local Co-op store is extremely well-stocked for all your daily shopping needs whilst Wainwright’s Inn is a popular walkers’ retreat serving good food throughout the day and into the evening. Ambleside, just 5 miles away offers a wider variety of shopping, bars and restaurants to sample during your stay as well as more superb walking and a number of waterborne activities on and around Windermere.


Enjoy fabulous fell views from the patio

More suited to a couple or a small family, Daffodils has been cleverly designed to make best use of the compact design but is none the less comfortable and an ideal holiday base, whatever time of year you choose to visit. The open plan living area with patio doors enjoys fine views out towards the local fell range. The neat kitchen has all the usual facilities required in order to properly self-cater including a washer/dryer. The two bedrooms offer a small double and 2 ft 6’ bunks sharing in a modern bathroom with shower over the bath, handbasin and WC.

Respond to Daffodils

  • Helen says:

    Fabulous little cottage, perfect for our long weekend. Right in the heart of the Langdales with amazing views from the sunny terrace. We loved it.

  • Katherine says:

    We had a brilliant September stay here and would definitely recommend it – the location is fantastic with amazing views, local amenities within walking distance and a well-equipped little house with everything we needed. It’s certainly cosy for 4 people but we didn’t feel like we were too much on top of each other. Smooth check-in, found everything easily and it was nice and clean. Great walks over the hill to Grasmere or along to Elterwater, and a good base for exploring further afield in the Lakes as well. We recommend the Wainwright Inn for a pub lunch but get there early as it fills up fast! Also highly recommend the cafe in Elterwater for ice cream or a full Cumbrian breakfast. All in all a great stay!

  • Priyanka says:

    Daffodils is perfect if you want to be immersed in the Lake District. A great place to log off from your busy life and relax. We had a lovely time and help was readily available when we couldn’t figure out how to get the hot water working. Everything you need is in daffodils

  • Sheena says:

  • James says:

    Daffodils is in a brilliant location. The view from the front is fantastic and it is really handy for some of the best walking in the Lake District. We had a wonderful weekend and would love to stay there again.

  • Kathleen Doyle says:

    Amazing stay at Daffodils. Sooo many different birdies. Stunning scenery from every window. A beautiful home from home, we had everything we needed and a gift bottle of prosecco. We will be back, thank you

  • Mark says:

    Wonderful location for exploring Langdale by foot. Tardis like accommodation with everything you need. Walking distance to a couple of pubs / restaurants in Chapel Style and Elterwater – Plus gentle walks to Skelwith Bridge or Dungeon Ghyll. I was able to walk from the accommodation to Scarfell Pike and cycle to Wrynose / Hardknott Pass – all real Lake District experiences. I’d recommend and would love to go back.

  • Mark says:

  • Tuuli says:

    Great location near hiking trails. Well equipped and host was very responsive with communications. Highly recommended. Will book again.

  • Nathaniel says:

    Beautiful location in central Lake District with stunning views

  • Guy says:

    A nicely presented clean space with everything we needed. Well appointed kitchen and a clothes washing machine with detergent provided all proved very helpful for us. Good power shower. I would be happy to stay again. The shared kitchen/dining/living space is quite small for four people, but we were out walking most of the time so it was fine for us.

    Great place to stay
