Oakdene Cottage is a part of Oakdene House, a large detached property built in the early 1970's, situated in the centre of the village of Chapel Stile, just a stones throw from the local village store and the Wainwrights Inn pub. There's walking from the doorstep in all directions, you really don't need to use the car to explore the Langdale Valleys and the Lake District National Park if you don't want to. If you jump in the car you'll find Ambleside just 10 minutes away. The towns of Grasmere and Windermere are a little further away. You can enjoy a variety of cafes, restaurants and bars in these nearby towns. The Lake District is home to lots of fabulous independent businesses, meaning there are plenty of interesting and unique shops for you to enjoy during your holiday in the Lake District.

In the 1980s this property was extended and split into two separate properties, the larger half sleeping 8 is Oakdene House and the smaller part sleeping 6 is Oakdene Cottage. If Oakdene Cottage isn't big enough for your whole family you can book both Oakdene House and Oakdene Cottage together, so up to 14 people can come on holiday to the Lake District, to find out more about both properties CLICK HERE

Oakdene Cottage is spread over three floors, the entrance into the cottage is to the left of the main house when accessed from the front, or down the right hand side of the building if approached from Oakdene Cottage private parking. A porch space for muddy boots and coats leads into the hallway on the ground floor. Off the hallway are two bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms.The first is the master with a king size bed,chest of drawers and built in wardrobe , the second a twin, with large single beds (10 cm longer), hanging rail and chest of drawers. Both ensuite bathrooms have a WC, wash basin and shower. The third bedroom is a also a twin with standard size single beds,and drawers. Also on the ground floor there's a shower room with shower, toilet and sink. 

From the hallway the stairs lead up to the open plan lounge, kitchen and diner. The lounge has comfortable seating for six, tv with full Sky package, Fibre 2 Wi Fi ,blu-ray and music docking station. You can enjoy relaxing in the lounge at Oakdene Cottage after a day out exploring the Lake District fells. The kitchen is a good standard and has electric oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and washer dryer. The dining area has a large oak table and chairs for six people so you can eat a delicious home cooked meal together or enjoy some good old fashion fun playing board games. The family bathroom with bath, shower over bath, toilet and sink is also on the first floor.

On the top floor is a second twin bedroom with standard size twin beds, hanging rail and drawers. There is also a storage cupboard housing the freezer,iron,ironing board and vacuum cleaner on this floor.

Oakdene has just had completion of extensive works done by the owners including ,new window frames, upgraded heating system. All bathrooms have been refurbished and the mattresses have also all been replaced in the bedrooms as well as new carpets throughout. Finally there is now the addition of an ensuite bathroom to one of the down stairs bedrooms making three bathrooms to three bedrooms in this lovely accommodation. 

Oakdene Cottage has a part of the garden, set aside from Oakdene House. which is private and separated by a hedge  to the rear of the cottage. With well established plants and trees, a grassed area for family games and a table and chairs on a patio area provides seating and is enclosed to be dog friendly. A short path from here also leads to the private off road parking area specifically for Oakdene Cottage, with room for 2-3 cars.
