Nestled in the pretty Langdale hamlet of Chapel Stile, this 19th Century chic Lakeland retreat takes a picture-postcard setting overlooking the Langdale Valley. This sleepy village is an ideal base with its handy shop and excellent country pub yet an abundance of walks and mountain bike routes from its doorstep.
Step inside Fountain Cottage and you'll fall in love with the traditional character and instantly soak up the contemporary luxuries of a meticulous restoration contrasting the old oak beams, thick walls and stone floors with crisp modern decor.

Contemporary comforts spread over the three floors; sumptuous cottage bedrooms, sleek designer bathrooms and a top floor lounge with a newly installed woodburning stove and a furnished, south-facing balcony for lazy summer brunches or just a cool place to chill out after those hard days on the fells.
Lakeland slate on the outside and lovely mountain and village scenes through almost every window.

Active families will have no need to use their car, couples will relish the romantic location and cosy evenings by the woodburning stove and all will be glad of the short walk to the Good Pub Guide listed Wainwrights Inn.

Although this luxurious Lake District cottage is an outdoor lovers paradise, for those who want to just relax and be pampered the Cottage benefits from membership for two adults at the nearby Langdale Leisure Club. The Club offers a well equipped gym, swimming pool and sauna. Fountain Cottage guests are also able to sign in additional members of their party on the payment of a small day or evening charge. Children under the age of three benefit from free entry.

Come rain or shine whether you are looking for outdoor activity or a peaceful romantic retreat Fountain Cottage offers it all.

The large entrance hall with original flagged stone floor and space for outdoor gear leads upstairs to the excellently equipped Shaker kitchen / dining room which affords fabulous views over Lingmoor Fell. Through to the modern lounge with newly installed wood-burning stove and French doors leading out to the balcony again overlooking Lingmoor Fell.

The romantic double bedroom with a wrought iron bed is located on the entrance level and has its own ensuite with luxury power shower. Also on the entrance level is the luxury family bathroom which offers both a separate bath and power shower cubicle. A flight of stairs leads down to the cosy twin bedroom which has its own outdoor access.

Outside there is a large shed for secure storage of bikes and outdoor equipment. There is parking for 1 car directly outside the cottage with further on lane parking close by.

There is a wide selection of maps, books, guides and information on local activities for your use.

We also accept one small well behaved pet in the cottage.

Lovely cosy cottage in wonderful location

By Annette and Mike on 27-Aug-2021

Fountain Cottage is a bit quirky but it has a lovely holiday feel. It was lovely and clean upon arrival. The kitchen and lounge are situated on the upper floor but this gives them lovely views out over the village and valley. The balcony off the lounge gets the afternoon sun and is a great place to take an end of day, pre dinner drink. The cottage is nicely furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped and, most importantly, the bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed using Alexa - something we don’t have at home and we were able to listen to lots of music. Simon and Belinda were very easy to deal with and they had gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that their guests felt safe in the current environment. Fountain Cottage is situated in a lovely village with lots of walking close to hand. We didn’t try the pub in the village but did enjoy walking the half a mile down to the pub at Elterwater for a drink or supper. We would most definitely like to visit again.

Fabulous place to stay...

By Debra on 20-Aug-2021

The cottage was everything we hoped for. Very clean, tidy, comfortable and very cosy. A real home from Home. The kids loved it and the location is ideal. Will definitely be staying again.

Superb Stay at Fountain Cottage

By Val W on 21-May-2021

A fantastic cottage in a beautiful area. There was everything we needed in this super home. To top it all, it has lovely owners, who, obviously, care. We’ve already made a reservation for next year. A very BIG thank you.
