  • "Being in the same business I appreciate the challenges of maintaining a property to a high standard especially a dog friendly cottage."

    So overall I would say the owners do a good job. It is a stunning location and we had a great holiday. Areas for the cleaners to focus on - oven, shower screen limescale (not too bad but could be better). Food was left in the freezer - cleaners to check freezer (no big deal though). The owners may not know that the dishwasher is loose because it has not been correctly fitted - there should be supporting brackets screwed to the worktop. Easy to fix.

  • "A lovely Cumbrian cottage, ideally situated for hikers and bikers with many walks and rides immediately accessible from the front door."

    The accommodation has every amenity and was very comfortable. We wanted for nothing. Parking arrangements were not perfect but perfectly adequate (a few meters from the the front gate). The mains water was delightful to drink and contributed to the best sourdough loaf we have ever baked! We will happily return.

  • "This is the second time we have stayed here and like the first we really enjoyed it."

    A few little issues Dishwasher did not drain (Outlet possibly blocked) didn't bother us so we just washed up Towel rads in bathrooms didn't come on despite playing with settings Tumble drier takes forever to dry clothes. Took us 4hrs on the high setting. Not a problem for us but with energy prices rising possibly a more efficient one that dries quicker? Apart from that we had a great stay and would certainly use again

The property

Set in the hamlet of Little Langdale between the Coniston Fells and the Langdale Fells, Oxen Fell Cottage is in the very heart of the Lake District.

The front door opens to a lovely dual aspect lounge with comfy sofas arranged around a large coffee table, cosy log fire and Smart TV making this ideal place to relax at any time of day.

To the rear of the cottage there is a spacious kitchen dining room, with a contemporary, fitted kitchen & family dining table.

Upstairs, to the bedrooms: the first, to the rear has a comfortable king-size bed, views to the fells and an en-suite.

The second bedroom has twin beds and also offers an en-suite shower room.

Outside, there is small patio area with bistro table, the ideal spot for coffee in the morning, and across the yard there is a utility room with washing machine and drier and bike storage.

Little Langdale is a magical place to simply soak up the Lake District Fells.

The road through the valley winds its way past Little Langdale Tarn beneath the north of the Coniston Fells before it splits to head west over the ancient Wrynose Pass or north passing the beautiful Blea Tarn en-route to Great Langdale.

The Three Shires Inn offers hearty homemade fare and local ales.

Walks of all standards abound and the famous Cathedral Cavern and Slaters Bridge are both within easy reach When you wish to head out and explore the rest of the Lakes, you can pass pretty Elterwater on your way to Skelwith Bridge and the A593, with the Britannia Inn, and various pubs and cafes.

From here, head south to Coniston or north to Ambleside - a sophisticated, bustling town.

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

About the location

LANGDALE

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.
