  • "Oakbank is in a fantastic location being close to the Chapel Stile shop, the Britannia Inn, and Wainwrights pub."

    It is a beautiful, modern and clean cottage and has an excellent shower. Love it and will always return there.

The property

Situated above the pretty village of Elterwater, this stunning Lakeland cottage has it all.

Magnificent views, luxury accommodation, tasteful furnishings, heaps of character, the fabulous ‘Britannia Inn’ on the doorstep, and ‘Chesters On The Water’ and the ‘Drunken Duck’ close by.

Oakbank certainly has the wow factor and makes a very special hideaway for family or two couples sharing.

Guests take a private lane to the cottage, where there is ample parking for two cars.

Slate steps lead up to the stylish conservatory with comfortable seating and wonderful views.

The cosy sitting room with dining area is arranged around the woodburning stove; rugs and wooden flooring adding the final touch of rural charm.

The kitchen is a dream, with decorative range, stone lintel, and luxury appliances.

It is extremely well-equipped with everything needed to conjure up a romantic meal or cooked breakfast.

A separate utility ensures that muddy boots and outdoor clothing are hidden discretely from sight.

Upstairs are the two generous bedrooms, both with super king size beds and more stunning views.

The bathroom boasts a double ended bath and separate power shower, perfect after a day in the hills.

The cottage garden is a delight, with patio furniture and more of those magical views, where better to enjoy breakfast or evening tipple?

This is a peaceful and magical retreat, somewhere truly unique in which to spend your precious leisure time.

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

About the location


Great Langdale 2.9 miles; Ambleside 4.2 miles; Grasmere 8.2 miles.

Elterwater is a true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A tranquil hamlet with its tiny ‘swan lake’, Elter Water, sitting at the gateway of the striking Langdale valley. The soft valley landscape is in sharp contrast to the steep jagged Langdale Pikes. Elterwater sits between Ambleside and Great Landgale, where at the top of the valley the infamous Wrynose Path is the only way out of the u-shaped valley, giving it a superb sense of seclusion. The larger towns of Grasmere and Ambleside are a short drive away providing a host of options for shopping and eating out.
