This is a great house in the heart of the Langdales.. well equipped kitchen, wifi, games room with pool table, comfy beds, nice lounge, pub only 100 yards a way. We had an extended family gathering there with five adults and three children. What is not to like. highly recommended. .And the Langdales are stunningly beautiful of course.!

Many thanks for your kind review Stephen - the back-to-work-blues has obviously not kicked in yet! I think you had some great weather too - Sept is a very undervalued month I feel - but I like to keep the Games room well stocked so there's something to keep children (and adults) occupied if the rare rain makes an appearance. And yes, the Langdales are stunningly beautiful - I never tire of the vista you get of the 'Pikes' as you drive over the cattle grid at the entrance to Elterwater Common. Hope to see you down again next year - the sofa-bed in the games room will definitely be in place then!! Cheers, W

“Amazing Find”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

When I search for a property on Holiday Lettings I am very specific - must have wifi, dishwasher, 4 bedrooms etc etc. This place has absolutely everything we need and more! 2 tv's (great when you have teenagers), dishwasher, washing machine, 2 loos, loads of great walks straight from the door. Ambleside just 4 miles away. Warren has thought of everything. There is a pay phone, meaning if you need to contact someone urgently you can either phone them for a small fee or get them to call you. In addition there is rock solid wifi. There is a games room. The bedrooms are perfectly big enough with plenty of storage. Plenty of dishes/cutlery. Shop literally 20 paces away. Pub 100 metres away with friendly staff and serving great food. Langdale Spa within 8 minute walk - had a lovely spa day there with my daughter. Tesco also delivered here! We will DEFINITELY come back if Warren will have us, at least once a year. It's a great house, in a great location, priced to reflect what it does and doesn't have. There are a couple of downsides - most notably no loo in the basement, meaning you have to go up 2 flights of stairs from the basement bedrooms to use the loo, however, we knew this before we came! Also, no mobile signal anywhere near (some would understandably say this is a definite advantage). We would defy anyone not to think this is a great location for a Lake District holiday - far enough away from "tourists" but close enough to civilisation when you need it. Well Done Warren, exactly what a holiday cottage should be!

Wow - great review Rachel. Many thanks indeed and very grateful for the constructive feedback. Summer duvets (in lieu of the winter duvets) now ordered and should be in place for next week. But, the downstairs loo might take a little longer! Of course, the mobile signal is beyond my control, but as you say, it can be a relief to be disconnected from the world every now and then! Hope to see you back. Warren

“FANTASTIC! Would recommend to anyone!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The cottage had everything that we could have asked for including a fully stocked games room and a SKY tv box!!!
Plenty of space for all of us and our Labarador
Well stocked village shop across the road and good food and drink in the village pub 2 mins walk down the road.
The Wi-Fi in the cottage was great for keeping in touch with family (as none of us could get mobile signal in the village) but there is a payphone in the kitchen that accepts incoming calls.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. Obviously can't do much about the mobile phone coverage but the payphone is good for emergencies and of course guests can use the Wifi to call out via Skype or Viber on their phones etc. Hope to see see you and your Lab back again next year. Thanks again, Warren

Glad you enjoyed your stay and yes, I'm always trying to improve things whether it's in small (bought some kitchen scales this week) or big ways (the wood burning stove that I had installed last year). Actually, the cottage is better stocked than my permanent home!!

“Spacious, clean, well-stocked, and perfectly located!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a wonderful stay in the Old Postmaster's Cottage. Warren gave us thorough instructions and was extremely helpful and responsive to my questions in the weeks leading up to our stay. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, with excellent appliances all around, and nearby parking. Chapel Stile is the perfect balance of quiet remoteness, proximity to larger towns, and access to shops and pubs in the village itself (literally down the street from the Old Postmaster's Cottage).

Many thanks for your review and I'm really pleased you had a good time. And yes, Chapel Stile is a great village location for a Lakes holiday. When I was looking to buy a cottage somewhere in the Lakes, I spent about 18 months and viewed about 20 properties before I bought The Old Postmasters Cottage. It's virtually bang in the middle of the Lakes National Park, near to the larger towns of Ambleside, Windermere & Grasmere but in a much quieter village location - those towns get very (too?) busy at weekends and in summer. But, Chapel Stile still has the 'essential' facilities of a village shop, pubs & church within walking distance. Hope to see you back next year where you'll find the WiFi network much easier to log on to!! Thanks for the feedback. Warren
