Stunning views from the terrace

This wonderful traditional cottage dates back to the 17th century and is said to be the oldest property in Langdale. It has plenty of character and lies in a charming setting with stunning views of the Langdales.

The property is set up on the hillside above the Great Langdale road. Beside this characterful cottage is a small orchard and a stone built shed suitable for storing bicycles. From the parking area, guests enter through the side door straight into a large slate floor kitchen. From the kitchen is the main living area with cosy log burner and views into the established and well maintained garden and across Langdale. There is a separate dining room with very old oak panelling and large dining table. The downstairs bathroom has both a shower and bath to soak away a day’s walking in the lakes.  The stairs lead up to the first floor with three simple bedrooms with old oak floorboards and a family bathroom.

This is one of the oldest properties in the valley, has been sympathetically updated, has modern conveniences but still retains much of its historical character, such as stone flag floors and polished floorboards.  Floors and stairs are a little uneven and, as a traditional stone cottage, it can take a little while to heat up.  The setting is magical and arguably one of the best locations in Langdale with stunning views of the Pikes.  The garden slopes downwards from the front terrace. Please note there are two streams within the boundary of the cottage so please ensure children are supervised at all times.
