Six beautiful Lakeland cottages

We are a small family run cottage letting business in Central Lakeland. Our six traditional cottages are in Langdale (Chapel Stile), Grasmere, Ambleside and Coniston. They are all in prime locations with open fires, unlimited WiFi and inclusive of reasonable usage gas/electricity.

We directly manage five of the cottages ourselves and the sixth (Bank View, Chapel Stile) is handled through a local letting agency. Because we only advertise properties which we own ourselves, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and personal service and we regularly receive accolades from satisfied customers many of whom (more than 60% in a typical year) are repeat visitors.

In common with all our cottages, some information on how to book, what’s included and other details are provided below.

Booking Procedure

To provisionally book a stay at our cottages at 1 Far End (Coniston), 2 & 7 Lingmoor View (Chapel Stile), 6 Church Street (Ambleside) and 3 Tarn Cottages (Grasmere), you can call 015394 41680, email cottagescumbria@gmail.com or preferably complete an online booking form found under the “Tariff” tab for your selected cottage. If you prefer you can download and print a PDF booking form which you can send to us.

If the cottage is available it will be provisionally reserved for you.

We will require a deposit which is one third of the total price of your stay. If it’s one month or less before the start of your stay we require full payment. Payment can be made by Bank transfer (BACS), cheque or PayPal.

On receipt of your booking form and deposit we will confirm your reservation by email or post.

If you’re sending a printed booking form and a cheque our address is High Hollin Bank, Coniston, Cumbria LA21 8AG.

If you’re paying by Bank transfer or PayPal we’ll be in touch with the necessary details.

Bookings for Bank View (Chapel Stile) are handled solely by Wheelwrights Holiday Cottages and you will need to book through their website.

What’s included and What’s not

Unlimited WiFi broadband, gas/electricity and coal (reasonable usage) along with an initial supply of kindling and firelighters are included in all of our cottages, as are all bedding/bed linen and tea towels. Bath and hand towels are not provided. See below for gas and electricity.

A cot and high chair can be provided. We make a charge of £10 for each (but we do not provide cot bedding).

Bath and hand towels

We do not normally provide bath and hand towels but can do so, if required, subject to an additional charge of £4 per person.

Gas, electricity and coal

Gas and electricity is included within the tariff. Coal is provided free of charge for normal use. With the recent high cost of energy we would expect customers to be considerate about not leaving heating on for excessive lengths of time.

Landline telephone

There is a land line telephone for the convenience of our visitors in all our cottages except 6 Church Street. We shall be grateful if you will leave cash in the cottage at the end of your stay to cover the estimated cost of any calls made during your stay. We are not looking to recover the cost of local and / or minor calls.


Dogs are welcome (usually a maximum of two) in all of our cottages subject to our usual conditions – guaranteed house clean, confined to the ground floor and not allowed on the furniture. We make a charge of £10 per dog.

Directions and access

Directions and all necessary arrival information will be e-mailed or posted to you shortly before the start of your stay. There is a key safe outside the front door of all our cottages and the key safe combination will be included in the arrival information.


As in almost all holiday homes smoking and vaping is not permitted in any of our cottages.
