A lovely retreat for 4 in Elterwater

Situated in the pretty village of Elterwater in the Langdale Valley, Bens was once upon a time a wheelwright’s workshop, now lovingly converted into a spacious ground floor property. Bens has fantastic views towards Elterwater Common and over towards High Close.

A couple of steps up lead to a level entrance on entering the cottage. The hallway leads through the house with bedrooms off from either side. The main double bedroom has a king-size bed, built in wardrobes, large chest of drawers and bedside cabinets. Across the hall the twin room has two single beds, built in wardrobes, small dresser and an en-suite shower room. Continuing down the hall to the left is the main house bathroom with shower over bath. To the right is the kitchen/dining room with Aga Style Esse electric range cooker. The lounge takes full advantage of the views with a floor to ceiling picture window looking out to High Close, the village common and fells beyond. A glass door opens from here down a few steps to a small sunny private and enclosed patio area with garden chairs. Lots of people sit out and admire the views with a well earned drink of choice! The property has exclusive parking on a private quiet road for one vehicle. Its separate laundry room is underneath the property.

Elterwater is a charming village in the heart of Langdale and the Lake District. The Britannia Inn is a welcoming local family pub and one of the most famous Lakeland pubs. For a more formal dining treat, the welcoming Eltermere Inn  is only a short stroll away over the bridge that spans the River Rothay. Surrounded by extensive lawns framed with awe-inspiring views, the Eltermere Inn combines the highest standards of service, good food and informality.

The local village shop in Chapel Stile is less than a mile away and very well equipped for all your needs.

For those who wish to explore further afield, a bus stop is located beside Elterwater’s magnificent maple tree. Buses are frequent and connect guests with the wider towns and outstanding scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Leaving the car behind and jumping on a bus to explore the National Park not only helps to look after the spectacular landscape but also gives passengers the opportunity to see it without the challenge of negotiating narrow, and sometimes steep, country lanes or search for parking at your destination. By sitting back watching the landscape go by, the journey becomes part of your adventure!
