Myrtle Cottage, in Chapel Stile, is one of a row of traditional Lakeland stone houses dating from around 1870, built for a local family of shoemakers and cobblers. Myrtle Cottage is laid out on three floors and provides accommodation for five people. Downstairs is the lounge and kitchen / dining area. On the first floor are a double and single bedroom and bathroom, and on the top floor a double room. There is a large basement running the length of the house accessed from the garden and the kitchen, which is useful for storing bikes and drying wet clothing and boots. From the cellar, there is access to the rear of the house to the small garden, with a grassed area, flowerbeds and a small paved area with seating which has views up the valley and of the surrounding hills.
There is on-street parking to the front of the property, and further parking available locally.
The heart of the village is just a short stroll away. In the village guests can find the well stocked local convenience store – the Langdale Co-op, Brambles Cafe, the welcoming village church – The Great Langdale Holy Trinity and The Wainwrights Inn which sells local brewed ales and provides good homemade food. The famous climbers inn The Old Dungeon Ghyll, New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and Stickle Barn Tavern (now owned by the National Trust) are just up the Langdale Valley.
The property is close to a main bus route with a bus stop at the end of the road. Elterwater, the famous Britannia Inn, Slates Bistro and the Eltermere Inn for a touch of fine dining are a short stroll away, with a fabulous walk along the river. The cottage is also handily placed to access the Langdale Valley, four miles from Ambleside and close to the neighbouring villages of Grasmere and Hawkshead.
One small dog allowed.
