A former quarryman’s home dating from 1860 in Chapel Stile, Juniper cottage has beautiful views of Lingmoor and the Langdale Pikes, which we consider the heart of the Lake District.
Set back from the road with private off road parking there a large lawned area in front of the cottage and direct access to the fell behind. Pubs serving excellent food and local beer are within easy walking distance. The village shop is five minutes away and sells everything!
Juniper cottage is well equipped with everything you need for a truly relaxing break at any time of the year. Read a book or enjoy a film or two curled up on the sofa in front of the open fire; maybe play a game from the large selection available. In warmer weather you can enjoy a glass of your favourite drink soaking up the afternoon sun on the lawn in front of the cottage.
You really are in the heart of the Lake District in the Langdale Valley, arguably the prettiest in the whole Lake District, with some outstanding walking right from the doorstep. The Cumbria Way passes along the valley floor, enabling you to walk to Skelwith Bridge and the fabulous Chesters café, or venture over the fell behind the cottage to Grasmere.
For serious walkers, the Langdale Pikes route starts a couple of miles away. Bowfell, the Crinkle Crags, Pike o’Blisco and Scafel are also close by. Not a walker? Windermere, Ambleside, Hawkshead and Coniston are within half an hour’s drive.
