Holly Tree Cottage, Chapel Stile

Holly Tree Cottage is a true gem. Situated on the outskirts of Chapel Stile looking out across Langdale Valley towards Lingmoor it offers everything you’d need for a relaxing holiday for four people. John & Hazel (the owners) love their little slice of The lake District and make regular trips to Holly Tree in order to enjoy it. During their visits both John & Hazel take great care to ensure that the cottage is kept in tip-top condition for their guests with regular maintenance and additions. Many guests comment about the well supplied cupboards with everything they could need whilst on holiday. Summer months offer great views and a chance to sit out on the picnic bench at the front which has views up Langdale to Pavey Ark, Harrison Stickle & Pike’o'Stickle (The Langdale Pikes). Winter finds many guests banking up the open-fire and snuggling onto the sofas with a good book and a glass of wine.
We love letting Holly Tree and enjoy seeing the reaction it receives from it’s guests. Below there are a few comments left by previous guests who wouldn’t hesitate to recommend its charms.
Mrs Holt (August 2011) – The cottage was lovely and surpassed our expectations, beautifully furnished & decorated, wonderfully equipped & gorgeously clean – add that to the fantastic location & superb views and it’s pretty perfect. Have run out of superlatives now so I’ll just say a big thank you to everyone involved – owners, booking company, cleaners & top it by saying we’d love to be back at any time of year.
Mrs Collins (Sept 2011) – We have had a very comfortable week in your lovely cottage. Everything was like home from home (even a bread-maker!) We had a mixed bunch of weather but did some glorious walks nevertheless, what a beautiful area & valley. We shall be back.
Mr Cooper (April 2012) – We’ve had a brilliant few days in Langdale, don’t want to go home! The cottage is lovely and had everything we needed and more. The Scrabble dictionary was particularly useful.
Mr Wilson (April 2012) – We really enjoyed our week at Holly Tree Cottage. It is very homely + we were pleasantly surprised at how well equipped it is. Loads to do & lots of walks. Don’t overlook the walk from Chapel Stile up Lingmoor – it may be one of the lower fells but the views are great. We will definitely return.
