A wonderful traditional cottage close to the church and full of charm

This is a well appointed traditional cottage, with fantastic views from the top of the garden.

Priest End in Chapel Stile dates back in part to the 16th century and is a traditional, stone-built, whitewashed cottage located next to the Church, The Great Langdale Holy Trinity. It was once used to accommodate visiting priests.  The slightly elevated position provides good views over the nearby cottages to the surrounding fells. With nearly 400 years of history this cottage has some fantastic features; beamed ceilings, stone-flagged floors and a stone turned staircase.

The cosy accommodation comprises on the ground floor of small porch, cottage style kitchen and dining area, lounge with multi-fuel stove and WC / shower / utility room.  The three bedrooms are on the first floor; one double, a twin and a single with a separate bathroom.

Outside to the front is a small paved area with flowerbeds and seating. To the rear a terraced garden climbs up the hillside behind the cottage providing wonderful views from the grassed area at the very top.

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 Coop, Brambles Cafe, and the village church – The Great Langdale Holy Trinity and 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.

For those wishing to explore further afield, Priest End is on a main bus route. 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!

The picturesque village of Elterwater with its magnificent maple tree, the famous Britannia Inn, Slates Cafe and the welcoming Eltermere Inn for a touch of fine dining are all 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, lake Windermere and close to the neighbouring villages of Grasmere and Hawkshead.
