Bottom Shop started life as a Joiner's workshop, along Elterwater's main village street. Perfectly located for walking in all directions and just a short stroll to the Britannia Inn. Close to many of the areas attractions, Bottom Shop's cosy and traditional style has kept people coming back year on year.

Entrance is into an open plan /hallway (with hooks for coats and space for muddy boots) and fitted open plan shaker style kitchen.

The Living/Dining area offers ample space for three tired walkers to relax after a day on the fells with its flat screen Smart TV which has terrestrial channels catch up services and Sky Now entertainment package. The log burner keeps you warm and cosy on winter nights, and in summer you can open the back door on to a private patio with table and chairs and a lovely view. 

There is a large double bedroom with king-size Sleigh bed, wardrobe and dressing table. The single bedroom has a single bed, a built in wardrobe and overlooks the garden.

Both the kitchen and shower room are compact but well laid out for ease of use.

If you are looking for a cosy holiday cottage in a great location this is the ideal place for your Lake District holiday!

What's included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided.

This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
