A cozy place for two attached and to the side of Fell View. Situated a short stroll from the Britannia Inn in the heart of Elterwater, the head of the Langdale Valley. Numerous walking opportunities in all directions, you really needn't use the car whilst you're here. If you'd still like to get about the bus stop is just 60 yards or so from the door. The Woodloft is just 1 mile or 15 mins walk to the local Coop Store in Chapel Stile, the Coop also has a super little cafe upstairs, which makes lots of delicious homemade cakes, lunches and breakfasts.

Perfect for couples looking for a romantic get away or if taken with Fell View, it provides easy accommodation for Grandparents or friends.   

Although compact the Woodloft has been well thought out with all you could need, including a slate floored conservatory most often used for reading the paper on rainy days (yes even in the lakes we get those) or cleaning down the dog after a brisk walk down the riverside. Coat hooks at one end and plenty of space for storing your muddy boots and waterproofs.Entry is through the Conservatory (which has its own seating). Through the main door into the good sized open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The lounge area has a Smart tv, dvd player, electric fire, sofa and chair and both large windows have window seats for you to spread out on. The kitchen has a good sized fridge, oven, hob, microwave and dishwasher and is well equipped with everything you could need if you enjoy cooking, the dining table and chairs is just to one side. 

From here through to the bedroom which has a pretty king size metal bed, wardrobe and drawers, and space for a cot should one be required.Just off the bedroom is a separate utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. From here is your access to the shower room with walk in shower, sink & toilet.

The property benefits from wifi throughout, and a parking space 20 yards away. For ease you can unload the car directly outside the cottage, before moving to the parking space.

If you bring mountain bikes with you , we can find secure storage for them underneath in a storage area, please ask for details.

*Note to tall people, beware of the original beam crossing the living area.

Please be aware that part of the property is below Fell View so some sound transference may occur.

The woodloft is a delightful cottage set amongst beautiful scenery. We found it suited us very well. Very comfortable and lovely and warm once we realised the timer was 2 hours fast and we reset it. Well equipped for everyday needs. Lovely bathroom with a nice shower. We would stay at the woodloft again.

Mr C,

Excellent location, so many walks straight from the door in very pretty village. Very well equipped and spacious for two people and a dog!

Mr P,

Excellent location for exploring the Lakes. Walking in the area great you don’t really need to move the car if you don’t want to and plenty of local pubs within walking distance to sample food and drinks

Mrs B,

Woodloft is perfect for couples. The bed is very comfortable, the little attentions of homemade biscuits, wine, coffee, tea, orange juice and milk are a nice touch. We love the view out of the lounge and the porch area is great to store wet weather gear and boots. Lovely walks can be had from your doorstep and the Britannia Inn and Slates cafe are very close for outside meals.

Mrs F,

Peaceful setting, glorious views. The perfect size and location for two who love walking in the fells.

Mr F,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy property. The facilities, location and little touches were excellent and we would definitely returning for another stay.

Mrs T,
