A Fantastic Base to Explore the Beauty of The South Lakes

An ideal base for exploring the Langdale Valley, Bluebells enjoys a slightly elevated setting in the charming village of Chapel Stile. Great views can be had from this modern-day retreat and some of the best walking in the area can be enjoyed right from the front door.

Wainwright’s Inn is a popular haunt with locals and tourists alike as are the equally renowned Old Dungeon Ghyll, Sticklebarn and Britannia Inn, all offering a warm welcome when you’ve walked up an appetite and thirst!

The house is in a brilliant location and the view from the front door into the valley is lovely. The kitchen is very well kitted out. The two little beds upstairs are best suited to children, especially the one close to eaves. It's easy to bang your head getting into and out of the that one, but otherwise nice and comfy. The media available is very good as are the games. We had a very nice stay.

I love the Langdale Valley and the location of the property is perfect for walking down across to Grasmere, Rydal Water or down to the Langdale campsite and pubs.

Amazing location for some great walks, a few great pubs too. Stunning views, clean and cosy house.

Perfect location for us, the cottage has everything you need to be self contained. Beds super comfy with lovely sheets. The area is so peaceful and within walking distance, just a few mins from Wainwrights pub which sells great beers and food! Local shop nearby also. Parking is up very steep hill and could be more challenging if icy/snow but not an issue for us. All in all would book again as great value!

We love the Langdale valley and knew there would be plenty of lovely things to do from the doorstep! Great view from this apartment across the valley. The accommodation was fine for our needs (2 adults, 2 children), especially the kitchen which was very well kitted out. The bathroom could do with a little maintenance / upgrade to be in line with what we would expect for this pricing.

We had a lovely time - the house was very well equipped and cosy and the views and general location absolutely stunning!!

Firstly I would like to thank yourselves and the owner for informing us about the building work next door and giving us the option of changing our booking to enable us to avoid this disruption. However, I feel I need to share my disappointment regarding the furnishing and cleanliness of the property. You will be able to see that we are repeat customers of Lakeland Retreats and have always valued the quality of the accommodation in the past. Bluebells however is in very poor condition, in terms of furnishings with stained and uncomfortable seating ( you can actually feel the frame of the couch through the seat cushions) a tired and frankly dirty bathroom, filthy carpets, not to mention the pervasive smell of mould and damp that dominates the property. It appears that the owners have made minimal investment in this property which has frankly left us feeling underwhelmed not to mention feeling unwell after being exposed to dust, dirt and mould spores over the weekend.

Perfect location with the most spectacular view from the front door. Wonderful walks without needing to use car. Pub in walking distance. Lovely shop and great cafe for breakfast 5 mins walk away. House was small but perfect for us 3 women. Perfectly clean. Bottle of Prosecco waiting for us . Yes, the second bed upstairs is under a low beam but this was not a problem. Perfect little bolt hole.

Lovely holiday cottage, brilliant location.

Lovely quiet location with a nice view. Walking on the doorstep, along the Langdale Valley or up a number of hills if you want something more challenging. Walking distance to a couple of nice pubs that serve food, a very nice new tapas and cocktail bar and a village shop for essentials. You could quite easily stay a few days or a week without a car.

Great Location, Nice property

Lovely little cottage in a beautiful location. Kitchen was really well equipped and the TV had lots of options, as well as books and games too. Short walk to the pub and shops and definitely plan to return. Clean and tidy and felt very welcoming when we arrived, amazing walks right on the doorstep and the view from the patio is stunning. We sat out in the evening and it was beautiful. Only negatives for us were the bathroom never seemed to dry out so towels were always wet (kept extractor fan on and door open to air but didn’t help much) and the driveway/parking was difficult to find.

Great location. Well equipped

A cosy, little cottage in a fantastic location. Well equipped, good communication with the host. The village shop and pub are both great. Fantastic walking from the door. The local bus service is efficient if a little expensive. We only needed to use the car twice in a week. We would recommend.

Our stay at Chapel Stile was idyllic. We wanted a base to explore Cumbria and were taking our adopted Trailhound Jack by to visit his previous racing owners. Looking out over the Langdale Valley the cottage is compact but extremely well stocked. Really comfortable with everything you could need. An easy walk to two pubs always helps and the walk to Elterwater is beautiful and an easy 30 mins. Communication was great and we were lucky in that we had the front row to ourselves. There were other groups people in the accommodation on the higher level and everyone was super friendly and all the dogs managed to get along. Highly recommend this location to access Windemere, Grasmere, Buttermere. We even ventured to Ravenglass which is past the Langdales and on the coast. We are very likely to come back!

Lovely cottage in great location. Lovely views.
On Wednesday, 08 Jun 2022
Thank you for the best week. We wanted something rural but with close contact to the world (pubs, farm, town, east walks for the kids). Our 9 month old goldendoodle Olive had the best time. Our two boys (7,5) surprisingly loved it. They got into the relaxed rural life. The location was beautiful, with the most incredible sunrise. We would recommend to a small family or single couple. My only criticism, the property could do with two new sofas. We would come back

Property was very well equipped, including tv with streaming service. It was very clean and cosy and well located for access to shops and pubs in Chapel Stile and for walking from Langdale.

A lovely place to stay in a great part of the Lake District.

Bluebells is in a fantastic location with beautiful views from the living room (when the clouds clear at least!). We enjoyed walks up and down the Langdale valley directly from the doorstep and could have easily made it into Ambleside on foot if the weather had been dryer! The local shop and pub are welcoming and well stocked with essentials. We did find the accommodation itself quite compact though so would suggest no more than 2 adults for a comfortable stay.

Very well equipped, wonderful view and a perfect location for the Langdale area walks.

A beautiful location to visit Windermere, Grasmere, Coniston… A clean compact cottage. Parking available but have to carry suitcases etc up and down steps to street.

Lovely place in a perfect spot for walking from.

Vey cosy cottage, small but with everything that one might need. We did not use the upstairs but downstairs was plenty for 2. The kitchen was well equipped and the heating, hot water was plentiful. We had some beautiful walks and these could be structured to personal fitness! Many thanks,
On Friday, 24 Sep 2021
We had a fantastic few days in what is a very well-looked after property in a brilliant location for long Lake District walks. The property was very clean and had everything we needed (the kitchen, in particular, was very well stocked - necessary as there’s very few food options on the doorstep). Can’t wait to come back.

very well equipped, with everything you think you could possibly need. outstanding location. enjoyed our stay very much
On Tuesday, 03 Aug 2021
Incredible location for walking (Langdale Pikes and Scafell Pike easily acccessible). Also great for cycling and running. The accommodation is really comfortable and well equipped. Definitely recommended.

Good location, great communication and easy check-in/out. Cleanliness of the property could be improved.

“Cosy wee cottage, well placed for pub, shop and fells.”

Great location with fabulous views
On Friday, 28 Aug 2020
“A nice river to walk by, mountain hiking paths starting in a few minutes drive, a pub and grocery store in the village. A fantastic view out the window! Even if it rains one can still enjoy mountains while staying inside. The kitchen is very well arranged and has a variety of equipment. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. Dishwasher and washing machine help a lot. Tap hot water is often lukewarm, but the shower is hot all right."

Comfortable accommodation in a fantastic location for exploring the central Lake District. Amazing views from the front of the house.
On Saturday, 08 Aug 2020
Location is perfect for exploring the Lakes. You can walk to the local shop and more than one pub. Swimming / walks all on the doorstep. Near enough to Ambleside. Couldn't be better. We'll be back!
On Friday, 31 Jul 2020
Great location, spotlessly clean place, great communication and an overall perfect experience
On Saturday, 25 Jul 2020
A great little place to explore Langdale and the surrounding Lake District from. The place was spotless on our arrival, and the host was very responsive to any queries we had.

“The place is set in a great location in the Langdale valley. Nearby pub served well for evening meals with a good selection of beers. Accommodation had everything needed, was warm and comfortable. Thanks”

Great location if you love the Langdale Valley. Nice accommodation with everything you need including kitchen and utilities, games TV and modern easy to use heating system. One radiator didn't work but host turned up immediately with portable heater for that room.
