  • "Beautiful cottage but not great to get to our 1st night was freezing in there ..."

    Beautiful cottage but not great to get to our 1st night was freezing in there and the heating in the front bedroom didn’t work either we sat with our coats on all night the next evening someone came and brought us 2 heaters which worked well so second night was fine then our last night we had a power cut so we had nothing couldn’t even contact anyone as no phones no internet nothing so the house was beautiful but a bit of a nightmare holiday for us

    Thank you for your review, we are glad you found the house beautiful, however we are sorry to hear about the heating problems. Unfortunately the power cut was out of our hands. Property Owner

  • "This was our 4th stay at Brooklands, always one of our favourite holidays."

    The location is perfect, once parked up we didn't move the car for the week. We had perfect weather too for walking each day. Comfortable and warm, well equipped with everything we needed. Will be interested to see what the little building next to the cottage becomes .....We did think the property was pet free, however did suspect there had been doggies in the cottage.......I was sorry to see that we are already too late to book again for 2023 - already booked out for the year! Hopefully we will be back in 2024. A wonderful cottage!

  • "Brooklands is an idyllic cottage in the woods."

    Only a short walk from Little Langdale but has a lovely remote and quiet feel about it. There is an abundance of wildlife in the woods; we had deer and red squirrel in the garden on several occasions. The cottage is well equipped and has everything you need. Great walks off the doorstep and great food and drink available at the Three Shires Inn which is 10 mins walk away.

  • "Stunning cottage in a truly tranquil location."

    The cottage is extremely comfortable and tastefully furnished to a very high standard. Everything has been provided for, even down to the finer details such as food for the bird feeder in the garden, ensuring our feathered friends keep returning ! Also an unexpected gift pack greeted us on arrival, which was both thoughtful and most welcome. The location is perfect for a peaceful retreat, right at the heart of the beautiful Little Langdale valley, with plenty of wildlife and numerous walks on the doorstep. A thoroughly enjoyable stay at this beautiful property, thank you !

  • "Fabulous property- very well equipped warm and cosy."

    Only small gripe was lack of a dustbin, the outside bin was not down the track as the information said, so took bin bag to recycling centre

    The cottage was very well equipped, comfy beds and great bathroom. The garden was beautiful set in the woods so plenty of wildlife including a visit from deers! We have already booked for next year

The property

If you’re looking for seclusion and escapism but with a luxury feel, in a magical setting, Brooklands Cottage ticks all the boxes.

In a peaceful setting over the River Brathay amidst woodland in the heart of Little Langdale, this is a setting like no other.

Luxuriously decorated and appointed, this romantic hideaway offers glorious walks in every direction, and bird and wildlife all around.

Approached along a narrow country lane, used by a handful of locals and popular with mountain bikers and walkers and for the final 400 yards you leave the tarmac behind and continue up the old miners track to the cottage.From the lane the gate opens to a beautifully landscaped woodland garden and steps lead to the front door that opens to the porch.

This hideaway cottage is a magical retreat for walking in the Lake District, or simply soaking up the scenery.

The Three Shires Inn offers hearty homemade fare and local ales just a short stroll away.

Walks and bike rides abound, and the famous Cathedral Cavern and Slaters Bridge are both nearby.

When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, pass through pretty Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593.

From here, head south to Coniston or north to Ambleside.

You'll also find acclaimed Lake District country pubs aplenty in the surrounding area.

The perfect way to refuel after a day on the fells.

membership of local leisure club included.

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

About the location

AMBLESIDE

Grasmere 4.4 miles; Windermere 4.7 miles; Keswick 16.7 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
