    We've stayed with two other holiday firms in the Lakes and on both occasions found a good deal more information about local walks, etc including detailed maps and descriptions at both properties. Bank Cottage unfortunately was badly lacking on this score, apart from a small book about pub walks in the Lakes generally. It would be helpful to future visitors if you had more leaflets/advice/recommendations about walks in the immediate area - some of which can be done right from the front door. 2. We could not fault the interior of the cottage in terms of cleanliness and comfort but the exterior looked rather tatty and would benefit from a little TLC and basic maintenance - eg repainting the bench and weeding under the front window. There was also plaster peeling off in the lounge on the wall by the stairs which needs to be urgently addressed and re-decorated. Apart from the above - and perhaps the lack of a pint of fresh milk in the fridge on arrival - we enjoyed ourselves at the property and would happily return. John & Jackie Coles

The property

This characterful cottage is a romantic haven, situated in the village of Chapel Stile at the entrance of Langdale Valley.

Couples can be at one with the lovingly and cosy layout, which echoes warmth and style upon arrival.

Enter into the sitting room where you can relax and escape into your thoughts.

A kitchen rests behind the sofa complimenting the room well and a dining table sits to the side, perfect for enjoying breakfast in the morning.

The co-ordinating fabrics, together with a window seat and electric stove effect fire really set the scene and bring the space to life.

On the next floor you will be welcomed by a luxurious double bedroom home to a vaulted beamed ceiling, feature roll top bath and views of the Langdale Fells.

Decorated with floral patterns, this room is filled with character and leads to an en-suite shower room.

The village of Chapel Stile rests in the beautiful Langdale Valley with impressive scenery all around, offering a wealth of walking opportunities, and a fine village pub.

Chapel Stile is a great base for exploring the National Park, with easy access to a number of sights and fells worth visiting.

Further afield a trip to Bowness-on-Windermere, with its lake activities is a promising adventure.

This is a wonderful holiday setting not to be missed.
