Herdwick Place is ideally situated in the spectacular Langdale Valley. Guests lucky enough to stay her can enjoy mountain and valley walks straight from the front door along with many a climbing opportunity. For cyclists there are numerous routes available from the door including some ultra demanding climbs, through to the moderate 11 mile long Great Langdale Valley cycle trail (which can be joined opposite the house, as can the 10 mile long 'Tour de Langdales' route).

This mid terraced contemporary house has been completely refurbished to a very high standard and offers a modern, stylish and cosy base from which to explore the Langdale valley and beyond. The house is tastefully appointed throughout with local art and crafts much of which follows the Herdwick theme. Large windows give the house an open feel with excellent views across Great Langdale Beck to Baysbrown Farm and Lingmoor Fell beyond.

Perfectly positioned Herdwick Place is located on the outskirts of the village of Chapel Stile and is just a short walk from the church, Co-Op store, cafe and the popular Wainwrights pub.

The facilities of Elterwater village, including the Langdale Hotel and Britannia pub are within a half mile and in the opposite direction, deeper into the valley, you will find both Dungeon Ghyll Hotels and the National Trust owned Sticklebarn all within easy reach via the valley path.

In essence the perfect base for couples, friends and family looking to explore the local area.

Thank you for another fantastic holiday at Herdwick Place. This is our third visit and in these slightly scary and uncertain times it has been lovely to come to your spotlessly clean home for our delayed holiday. You have clearly gone to great efforts to keep us safe, which is greatly appreciated. We loved the addition of the bench and table out the front where we happily watched the world go by. We have had some wonderful walks and it has been such a tonic to be here - we have already booked for next year.

What a lovely week we had at Herdwick Place and thank you for the treats you left for us. We have eaten all of the chutney on our sandwiches this week and our little boy is a big fan of the jam! We visit the area frequently and we usually stay around Elterwater but we will definitely be back here - and also recommending Herdwick Place to our friends and family. Thanks again!

Arrived in storm Dennis. We've done lots of walks in the rain, sleet, snow, sun and wind. Loved celebrating my 50th here. Best meal was in New Dungeon Ghyll; meat pie. Yum!

Very comfortable, homely cottage! Had a right laugh at the sheep rolling down the hill. A beautiful place to stay even when the weather wasn't so favourable! Found some magical walks when the sun shone through. No need for maps, just step out the door. Thank you.

Lovely cottage, well fitted out with all we needed. Very clean and modern and it's obvious it's a cherished family retreat for lake lovers. We loved all the pictures and bought the same ones for ourselves in Grasmere and Ambleside. The cottage was very dog friendly, especially entering and exiting via the back to clean up and de-boot.
