  • "The owner of barefoot cottage was amazing very helpful , certainly went over and above to help."

    So a huge thank you to them for all the help and support.The cottage is lovely. All the positive feed back is for the owner and his cottage. Lake Lovers however I will never use again. The service they provided was non existent, I feel are they are now only interested in taking the customer’s money. I have felt they have steadily declined over the last few years, but this was another level. I would suggest anyone booking in the lakes use a company like heart of the lakes or Wheelwrights or go via cottage owners. Lake lovers have obviously gotten so big now they have no care or due diligence for the tenants.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our week in the Lake District, and Townfoot Cottage just completed the perfect holiday."

    The location is not difficult to get to and parking is easy with an allocated space just outside the front door. It’s cosy, comfortable and is equipped with everything you need. The cottage was very clean and the owners had provided some helpful information on how everything works, which was great. There are even board games and DVDs for a chilled night in which we thoroughly enjoyed using! The beds and pillows were so comfortable. We loved being in such a rural location, and the cottage is a very short walk to the local pub the Britannia (great pub food)! There are also lots of lovely walks you can do close by including one from opposite the pub which takes you past the beautiful Elterwater lake. We also loved how conveniently located the cottage is from our favourite villages such as Ambleside and Grasmere. This stay was just what we needed for a break away from the city and we will definitely be coming back again and will be recommending Townfoot Cottage and Sykes/Lake Lovers to our friends and family. The whole process of booking was smooth and the staff were always super friendly and helpful. Thank you!

About the location


Often referred to as Great Langdale, to distinguish it from nearby Little Langdale, Langdale's name comes from the Old Norse for 'long valley'. Langdale is a u-shaped valley formed by glaciers. It encompasses the two villages of Chapel Stile and Elterwater, as well as the hamlet of High Close. Set in the centre of the Lake District, Langdale is probably best known for its mountains, from the Langdale Pikes – a group of mountains on the northern side of the village – to England’s highest mountain, Scafell Pike. Rock climbers will also love Raven Crag, Gimmer Crag and White Ghyll. There Not surprisingly Langdale is also famous for it’s spectacular views, including Dungeon Ghyll Force Waterfall, Harrison Stickle and Pike of Stickle. it is an extremely popular holiday destination and loved by hikers, climbers, fell runners and lovers of the outdoors in general.
