Modern Cottage Retreat set at the Gateway to the Langdale Valley

Number One is a super modern take on a self-catering cottage and sits proudly at the end of the row of similar properties at Chapel Stile, the gateway to the beautiful Langdale Valley. Arranged over three floors, Number One enjoys fine, open views from the front to Baysbrown and across the valley towards Lingmoor Fell.

Chapel Stile is a quaint Lakeland village set amidst stunning scenery and just 15 minutes drive from popular Ambleside. Good facilities are on hand by way of the local, well-stocked Co-op store and the renowned Wainwright’s Inn is within staggering distance for a post-hike bar meal and a thirst-quenching pint of your preferred tipple. The location is perfect for those keen walkers and cyclists among you as superb routes for all ages and abilities can be enjoyed right from the door.

Charging point available for electric vehicles.


Beautiful Views from the Front to Baysbrown and Lingmoor Fell

Number One is accessed from the rear at lower ground level where you’ll find a handy hallway with plenty of hanging space for all your walking equipment and space to securely store your bikes and other outdoor gear. There’s also a cloakroom with basin and WC. An open tread spiral staircase leads up to the main living area with modern oak flooring and tasteful décor throughout; comprising of a well fitted, modern kitchen dining area to the rear, and lounge dining room to the front with the comfortable sofas arranging around the woodburning stove.

Stairs to the first floor lead to two bedrooms, one king-size and a twin, both sharing in a fully tiled and modern bathroom with shower over a P-shaped deep bath, basin, WC and heated towel rail.

Outside, there’s that all-important private parking space for one car with the possibility of parking a second, smaller vehicle alongside the property or to the front if carefully parked. There is even a charging point for electric vehicles!

Respond to Number One, Chapel Stile

  • Lee says:

    The house was lovely, well equipped abs close to the shop, cafe and pub. The house has everything as advertised. It was brilliant for walking to places like Grasmere, Slater’s bridge, Cathedral caves and lots of other lovely walks. It is within short driving distances of Ambleside, Brockhole, and Bowness for more active activities. A lovely house and village to be based in.

  • Lorna and Andrew says:

    We have been here so many times now it felt like coming home. It didn’t disappoint. We had a wonderful week cycling, walking and relaxing. Be back soon

  • Alison and Ian says:

    We’ve had an enjoyable 2 weeks. The house is an amazing base, so well equipped. The kitchen items are of great quality and furniture so comfortable. We enjoyed walks from the house to Chesters Café, Skelwith Bridge and to the Old Dungeon Gill.

  • Ann says:

  • Laurence says:

    Perfect location. Great house; had everything you need for a comfortable stay.

  • Chris says:

    We really enjoyed our week stay as a family at the cottage. It was very clean, equipped with a nice kitchen, bathroom and lounge, as well as lots of room to wash and dry our wet weather gear. The cottage location was perfect – set overlooking the hills, along a quiet road, with walks, local shop and pub all in walking distance. In the surrounding area (Ambleside, Windermere etc) there was plenty to do both on good and bad weather days. We found it a perfect base to explore beautiful Lakeland and a very reasonable holiday home.

  • Gemma says:

    Great week, out walking every day whatever the weather (much easier when you know you’re returning to a warm, well equipped home-from-home). We were even treated to a sprinkling of snow.

  • Hazel says:

    Lovely house in an amazing location.

  • Andrew says:

    Cosy and very well-equipped. Great location, just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Chapel Stile. Perfect base for walks along the river towards Elterwater and in the other direction towards Great Langdale. Recommended!

  • Joanne says:

    The house is lovely, well equipped and we’ve had everything we needed. Loved the canvas prints!
