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 an abundance of walks straight from the door.
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.

Belinda and I live in Chester. Belinda is a Chiropractor and I am a Chemical Engineer. We are passionate about the outdoors and spend all of our free time walking, mountaineering, mountain biking, climbing and competing in Adventure races. We have been coming to the Lakes for many years and fell in love with the beauty and solitude the Langdale valley offers in all seasons.
Having fallen in love with Fountain Cottage in 2012 our vision was to create a luxurious home away from home, a place to relax and forget about the stresses of everyday life and not just another holiday cottage.
