Cottages in Elterwater

Elterwater is a picture postcard village nestled in the Great Langdale valley in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

At the centre of the village green stands an ancient maple tree from which the nearby cafe takes its name. There is an excellent choice of locally sourced home cooked food in the village either at the Eltermere restaurant or the Britannia Inn where you can also enjoy an alfresco cooling drink in the summer or warm up in a nook by the open fire if the weather is cold.

The name Elterwater derives from Old Norse meaning ‘swan lake’ and you may still see Whooper swans overwintering on the Elter lake which lies about half a mile (800 m) south east of the village. A paved level walkway takes you past the water to Skelwith Bridge and the cafe and shop at Chesters. The scenery en route of the surrounding Langdale Pikes is spectacular. Indeed Elterwater is a fantastic base for hikers, climbers, fell runners, cyclists and anyone who enjoys being outdoors amongst some of the most beautiful terrain the Lake District has to offer. If you love nature, be sure to look out for the free-roaming Herdwick sheep (although you can hardly miss them) and red squirrels.

Should you wish for some culture, Elterwater is within easy striking distance of Wordworth’s cottage, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin’s houses. The towns of Ambleside and Windermere are nearby for shopping or a boat trip or take a ride on the Ravendale and Eskdale steam railway and enjoy the stunning scenery in comfort.

Should you decide on taking a holiday cottage in the Lake District – and why would you not with such a lovely destination - there is an abundance of choice here in Elterwater. Cottages are traditionally built of stone and slate; the majority are dog-friendly and have beautiful views over the valley.
