A picture-perfect Lake District cottage in a rural village setting, with breathtaking views from every window. Polly's Cottage is a 17th century, double fronted, Lakeland cottage in the Langdale Valley hamlet of Elterwater. The interior is an adorable combination of character features and contemporary comforts. Fall in love with the original range stove, Inglenook fireplace, old oak beams and enchanting window seats. Collapse into sumptuous sofas after a day on foot, and rest up in beautifully presented bedrooms. The country kitchen provides a perfect place for sociable meals, and your local pub is one of the Lake District's best. Two couples will spread out easily here, and families will enjoy a perfect location for an active holiday.

Location

Whether you wish to walk the Langdale Pikes, photograph the spectacular Langdale Valley or simply escape from the madding crowds, you'll find this holiday cottage in Elterwater a blissful retreat - without straying too far from the highlights of the Lakes.

Elterwater village sits between Ambleside and Great Langdale. The small nearby Elterwater tarn is a delight to behold, and can be reached via a path from the Elterwater Inn - your quintessential local Lake District pub serving great food and real Lakeland ale. Only a short drive will take you to vibrant Ambleside village and the shores of Lake Windemere. There you'll find a sophisticated range of shops for stocking up the kitchen, acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as 'The Glass House' and Windermere Lake Cruises departing from Waterhead Pier providing a scenic route to Bowness and Lakeside!

Also nearby is Coniston water, the Lake District's third largest lake. There you'll find more opportunities for boating activities, perhaps discovering Peel Island - featured in Arthur Ransome's Swallows & Amazons as 'Wild Cat Island'.

The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
