Bottom Shop started life as a Joiner's workshop, along Elterwater's main village street. Perfectly located for walking in all directions and just a short stroll to the Britannia Inn. Close to many of the areas attractions, Bottom Shop's cosy and traditional style has kept people coming back year on year.

Entrance is into an open plan /hallway (with hooks for coats and space for muddy boots) and fitted open plan shaker style kitchen.

The Living/Dining area offers ample space for three tired walkers to relax after a day on the fells with its flat screen Smart TV which has terrestrial channels catch up services and Sky Now entertainment package. The log burner keeps you warm and cosy on winter nights, and in summer you can open the back door on to a private patio with table and chairs and a lovely view. Guests are welcome to bring a well behaved pet to Bottom Shop. There is a small communal lawned area to the rear.

There is a large double bedroom with king-size Sleigh bed, wardrobe and dressing table. The single bedroom has a single bed, a built in wardrobe and overlooks the garden.

Both the kitchen and shower room are compact but well laid out for ease of use.

If you are looking for a cosy holiday cottage in a great location this is the ideal place for your Lake District holiday!

Cottage suited just the 3 of us. Good facilities, well equipped, great location. Good pubs with good food just a walk away.

Mrs Amanda B,

Location is the best. Excellent service friendly staff.

Miss Francesca T,

Our favourite area to stay in The Lakes. The cottage is very convenient for lovely walks with an excellent pub to relax in on return. Lovely property in great position with beautiful views. Our little old dog enjoyed strolling around the orchard which leads from the patio, as did we!

Mrs Moira C,

Bottom shop was a very cosy property, beautifully situated in the heart of the Lake District with walks of all levels from the door. It has an excellent pub on the doorstep and the Eltermere Inn comes highly recommended for very good food. The cottage was very warm and also had a lovely wood burning stove for those snowy nights. The views from the back garden were a very pleasant surprise with lots of plants and bird life and I even saw a stoat in the garden. Would certainly return. The office staff were very friendly and really helpful Thanks

Mrs Catherine J,

Fantastic in every way

Sarah B,
