  • "Very nice place and centrally placed in the village."

    The listing says Chapel Stile but it is in Elterwater which was better for me! The key box was difficult to open for some reason. Very comfortable bed and snazzy en-suite bathroom. Parking is good and it has a very useful hall for wet boots and gear. Overall - very good.

  • "A few previous reviews have mentioned noise from the attached property but we didn't find this a problem at all."

    I guess it depends who is staying next door! We found this property very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The shower especially good. The welcome pack is a bit sparse, only enough tea and coffee for a couple of drinks. No fresh milk r a bottle of wine which is provided by other companies! However, on balance, this is a good place to stay and we would use it again.

  • "The cottage is beautiful."

    Well equipped and in the perfect location. But I could not recommend it and would not stay again... The noise from the house above was dreadful! They were by no means noisy neighbours, simply a family going about their business. But we could hear everything!! The opening of drawers, tap being turned on, the lid being taken off the kettle. Whilst lying in bed, we could hear their conversation, word for word. It was such a shame as the cottage itself is one of the nicest we have stayed in. But this, sadly, put a real dampner on our holiday.

  • "Place is lovely."

    We also liked the area and the pub nearby. Chesters by the river also had great food and pastries. It’s a nice place to walk around. Very quiet, but ambleside is quite close if you want to go to a town. Only issue that I saw was the property didn’t provide any welcome pack or tea/milk, etc. Bring everything you need because there are no shops near walking distance. I think a small welcome pack would be a good touch by the owners. We always received it other properties and this one was lacking that. Other than that, we had a great stay here. Warning: it does get loud from upstairs and people kept moving furnitures around at night.

  • "A very enjoyable 4-night stay at the Woodloft."

    Stunning surroundings, great pub 2 minutes away. Clean and comfortable property. No instructions for the heating or the tumble-drier, which gave up on me halfway through drying some clothes.

  • "Woodloft Cottage is in a lovely location."

    There's no garden, but a bench nearby serves as a good location for a morning cup of tea overlooking the valley. Facilities generally good however lots of noise from the next property - they seemed to be constantly moving furniture :) Would return, however the full price I would say was excessively expensive.

  • "The cottage was lovely, in a great location and had everything we needed."

    Very comfortable bed and view from main living area was stunning. Couple of minor issues - key safe was initially a bit difficult to open. The noise from neighbours upstairs was bit off putting at night. Only in bedroom but luckily we only had neighbours for couple of days of the holiday but would possibly put us off hiring that particular cottage in future
