  • "Our second stay at Weir Cottage."

    Love the comfort and the location of the property. We will be back.

    Many thanks for your very kind comments, I am delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas at Weir Cottage Property Owner

  • "Perfect location for us as we were meeting with friends in the Langdale estate, also good for local walks, pubs and village shop."

    Beautifully fitted out but could do with a few more kitchen contents - teapot, ovenproof / serving dishes or casseroles and a potato peeler please!! We would definitely recommend and may use again.

    Many thanks for your very kind comments Sarah. I do hope you can return, and next time I can assure you there will be a teapot and a potato peeler. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage in a nice, quiet location."

    Clean and comfortable and well equipped. There is a nice pub within a few minutes walk and a well stocked local shop also well within walking distance. Car parking is a potential problem as there is no parking at the cottage and the road is too narrow to park outside, even for loading/off loading. There are nearby laybys and a grass verge but these were often occupied by walkers and other visitors so had to park in the village a few times. I can imagine this being more of an issue in summer/high season. Other than that, this is a lovely cottage and I would be happy to recommend it.

    Many thanks for your very positive feedback Roger. In response to your concerns, it is acceptable to park carefully outside the cottage for the purpose of loading / unloading, and parking laybys close to the cottage are usually free between 5pm - 9am when day visitors have departed. I strongly advise guests to not use their car whilst staying at Weir Cottage. There is a very reasonably priced (compared with parking charges) bus service to either the head of the valley or to Ambleside, the bus stop is opposite the village shop. From Ambleside, another bus service is available to Grasmere and Keswick. Depending on fitness levels, I can highly recommend walking back to the cottage from either Ambleside or Grasmere. The walk back from Ambleside over Loughrigg Fell offers some of the finest views of the Langdale valley. Property Owner

    Thank you for your feedback. We will pass on your comments to our Housekeeping Team. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Dear Nicholas I am very sorry that your experience fell below our normally very high standards. I have investigated and it looks like a heating pipe developed a leak during your stay and marked the carpet. It is a shame that you didn't contact Lakelovers, as their maintenance team would have responded very promptly to your concerns. I do hope that you will return to Weir Cottage, and I am very confident that your next experience will be a positive one. Owner Weir Cottage Property Owner

    The house was perfect for us. The facilities were good. The house was in the most perfect location for exploring the beautiful end of the lake district including The Langdales and surrounding area.

    Many thanks Hilary, I’m delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and were able to walk some of the many fabulous paths available straight from the cottage door. Property Owner

  • "Beds could have been more comfortable, as they were clearly cheap divans."

    However, apart from that the cottage was lovely and well equipped, and you can't fault the location!

    Thank you for your feedback Iain. You have awarded Weir Cottage a very high satisfaction score which is most pleasing and reassuring and I thank you for that. However, your comment regarding the beds is somewhat concerning. Unfortunately, it is impossible to cater for all requirements and perhaps you would have preferred a softer or a harder mattress, nevertheless I can assure you that both beds are of a high standard and, particularly the master bedroom, generally receive only positive reviews.

  • "Beautiful location."

    Cottage as described. Kitchen nice and new. Towels and bedding nice and new. Only a couple of things I do think would have made our stay better. The sofas are old and not very comfy. The TV needs up dating to digital and abit bigger. Not that we go on holiday to watch TV but in the evening it's nice to watch.

    Thank you for your positive review and constructive feedback Lucy. Rest assured I will act on your advice and I do hope you will return to Weir Cottage. Property Owner

  • "Instructions/directions with regards to parking could be much clearer."

    I'm very familiar with the local area so know where it's legal to park, but a visitor from further afield would struggle to make sense of the guidance provided for this in the listing. Similarly, the instructions in the kitchen for use of the garden could be much, much clearer - they are far to verbose, unclear and a non-native English speaking visitor wouldn't be able to make sense of them. I speak English as a first language and it was like reading double dutch. Make your instructions simpler and clearer.

    Thanks for your feedback Rob, I think you make very valid points. Diagrams might be the answer. A picture paints a thousand words. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful cosy yet spacious cottage."

    Suited us as a family perfectly. Comfy beds and bedding great to have bath sheets and not smaller towels. Everything was great and would absolutely stay again. One piece of constructive criticism would be to have a few more small bowls and plates along with some storage pots.

    Thank you Beckie for such pleasing and helpful feedback. I do hope you can return to Weir Cottage again soon. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful weeks stay at Weir Cottage in November 22."

    The house is fantastic, well equipped and very comfortable. The kitchen is excellent, beautifully made, and really well stocked. The beds are comfortable and the master is huge (perfect for me being 6 foot 2). We brought wood with us to take advantage of the stove and enjoyed the cold nights in front of the fire (although the central heating works well so not needed!). The location is great and very convenient for visiting The Langdale Hotel / Wainwrights pub (both within 5 mins walk). There is no parking immediately outside the house, but plenty of spaces nearby. Only minor point was the lack of an iron, but no big problem. We’d happily stay again and would recommend to others.

    Many thanks Richard, it is really pleasing to read such positive feedback, especially regarding the new kitchen and boiler. Property Owner

  • "Bright and modern conveniences in a traditional, warm cottage."

    Much bigger than it looks in the photos, and lovely and clean throughout. Great location for walks and the pub less than 2 minutes away, but it was a bit noisy being directly on the road. Really wonderful stay and would recommend it, perfect for couples.

    The second bedroom requires a new bed and the sofas are old and dirty. Bed linen is tired with holes and hairs were found on the mattress. It is a lovely location and the property could be great with a little investment and more attention to cleaning

  • "Lovely cottage, generally well equipped and great location."

    However, seriously let down by level of cleanliness. On arrival it appeared neat and tidy but with time we noticed that it had clearly only received a superficial clean - we debated complaining at the time but didn't want to disrupt our holiday. There was grit and dust in the corners of every room, crumbs under the table, dirty marks on cupboard fronts and down the outsides of the kitchen bin, the bin also smelt bad. We later found a soiled nappy and biscuit wrappers under the bed. On top of this, the cottage had a neglected air - the front gate was broken and had a panel hanging off, the front windows were thick with dirt and in the bathroom the plug had been 'fixed' with a bit of green bailer twine. Finally, this is the first time that we have been to a cottage that did not offer a towel and sheet change between weeks 1 and 2.

    Dear Abigail thank you for your feedback, I am very sorry that you had such a poor experience at Weir Cottage.

  • "Loved the cottage, just some niggles that made it 4 rather than 5 star."

    .. The curtains need curtain hooks downstairs - just makes it look shabby... and please put proper dimmable bulbs in the living room sconces - when you try to dim the existing ones they flicker with a horrible strobe effect - so it's full bright light or nothing which is not great... The main gripe was the towels - small, poor quality, smelt stale (used?!?!) and some were clearly dirty/stained... really don't want to have to pack towels - if linen is 'provided' then needs to at least be properly clean... especially in these covid times! Would also have been nice to be able to open the front bedroom window - it got quite stuffy and it's been painted shut...

    The bathroom and kitchen are both particularly well laid out. A couple of minor issues in the back bedroom: (i) the electric sockets in are behind the bed and totally inaccessible; (ii) it also wasn't possible to turn the bedside lights on and of. The house is in a great location for walking - we didn't use the car all week! We enjoyed our stay at Weir Cottage.

The property

Located in the heart of the Lake District's spectacular Langdale Valley, adjacent to the crystal clear waters of Langdale Beck, this traditional Lakeland cottage is built from local slate and is a wonderful retreat.

Oozing with charm and character this property has been lovingly renovated, but still retains much of the original appeal - an ideal place to relax and unwind. Situated just a short stroll from the centre of the village of Chapel Stile, with a local shop and the excellent Wainwright's Inn, this lovely cottage offers a warm welcome from the moment you enter it.

The living space offers a cosy place to relax and has a log burning stove and from the picture window in the kitchen, there are views of the cottage garden, woods, fields and glimpses of the fells beyond.

There’s also a patio where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine or morning coffee.

The master bedroom offers a super king size bed (this can also be split to make a fine twin room - please specify when booking), whilst the second bedroom is a double.

There are numerous wonderful walks straight from the front door and so little need for the car.

Enjoy a walk beside the river to Skelwith Force Waterfall, spend a day exploring the Langdale pikes or simply marvelling at the valley’s stunning scenery.

There are two great country pubs just a short distance away and amenities of the Langdale Country Club (not included but bookable direct) close at hand.

Weir Cottage is a great escape for those wanting to unwind and enjoy the best of the Lake District.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
