Meadow Bank is a beautiful traditional stone house set in it's own garden with lovely views. Located in the heart of Elterwater village this self catering holiday home is in a stunning spot!

The accommodation at Meadow Bank is comfortable, bright and spacious, ideal for a group of up to ten friends or family members who are looking to enjoy a holiday in the Lake District together. The large kitchen is well equipped providing double electric oven, hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and microwave. The dining area is bright and looks out over the garden and views beyond. The solid wood dining table and seating for ten people means you can enjoy family meals together, or get the board games out to see who is the competitive one in your group! Through the dining area is the lounge, this is a large and comfortable dual aspect room. With great views to the garden, fields and footpath beyond you can sit in the window and watch the world go by, or you can use the open fire and curl up with a good book on a chilly evening. There's also a TV with Sky package and DVD player in the lounge. In addition to the main lounge is a second, smaller sitting room with TV and two single guest beds. This room is multifunctional, providing a second space for some of the group to relax in. Or you can open out the guest beds (linen provided in the blanket box) and use the 2 beds if you are a party of 10 (please note one of the beds is a lower level so unsuitable for guests with mobility issues).

Elterwater has many happy memories for us as a family and we were delighted to find such a beautiful house in which to relive some of those memories. As you can see from our score we found the property very well equipped ,warm and comfortable. The house has been well loved and Good Life Cottages have successfully maintained this. Having the offices on the door step is an advantage and adds to the personal contact that is important when booking holiday accommodation. Thank you. Mary S c
