Perfect for couples looking for a romantic get away or if taken with Fell View, it provides easy accommodation for Grandparents or friends.   

Situated a short stroll from the Britannia Inn in the heart of Elterwater, the head of the Langdale Valley. Numerous walking opportunities in all directions, you really needn't use the car whilst you're here. If you'd still like to get about the bus stop is just 60 yards or so from the door. The Woodloft is just 1 mile or 15 mins walk to the local Coop Store in Chapel Stile. The Coop also has a super little cafe upstairs, which makes lots of delicious homemade cakes, lunches and breakfasts.

Although cosy, the Woodloft has been well thought out with all you could need, including a slate floored conservatory most often used for reading the paper on rainy days (yes even in the lakes we get those) or cleaning down the dog after a brisk walk down the riverside. Coat hooks at one end and plenty of space for storing your muddy boots and waterproofs. Entry is through the Conservatory (which has its own seating). Through the main door into the good sized open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The lounge area has a flatscreen tv, dvd player and electric fire, a sofa and chair, both large windows have window seats for you to spread out on. The kitchen has a good sized fridge, oven, hob, combi microwave and dishwasher and is well equipped with everything you could need if you enjoy cooking, the dining table and chairs are just to one side.

From here through to the double bedroom which has a pretty king size metal bed, wardrobe and drawers, and space for a cot should one be required. Just off the bedroom is a separate utility room with washer, dryer & full sized freezer and from here, access to the shower/wet room with walk in shower, sink & toilet.

The property benefits from wifi throughout, and a parking space 20 yards away. For ease you can unload the car directly outside the cottage, before moving to the parking space.

Whats Included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.

If you bring mountain bikes with you we can find secure storage for them underneath in a storage area, please ask for details.

N.B Please be aware that part of the property is below Fell View so some sound transference may occur.

Note to tall people, beware of the original beam crossing the living area.

Enjoyed our stay and felt that the property was excellent.

Mr Paul C,

Elterwater an excellent area for exploring Langdales and Southern Lake District

Mrs Carol B,

A lovely property in a very convenient location. Excellent

Mr Ian F,

Nicely refurbished, lovely design.

Mrs Carolyn T,

We loved the cottage, very comfortable and everything we could need.

Ms Pauline B,

We're regular visitors to the wood loft and we were very sad that the Bear usually on the bed was in the cupboard! I hope he's in pride of place next time :p

Mr Robert H,

The Woodloft is ideally located for taking the dog for walks and for us to stop for a drink and maybe something to eat at the local pub. The conservatory is also ideal for the dog especially if it's raining.

Mr T C,

I (grandparent with small dog) stayed in the Woodloft adjoining Fell View where the family were. The arrangement was most successful and enjoyable. We hope to be able to return next year. Thank you

Mrs Carolyn T,
