Situated in the heart of Chapel Stile, close to the village centre, Church Gate is the end cottage on a row of three. The cottage backs onto the lane leading from the Church, which takes you on the old road over Red Bank to Grasmere. Views from the front of the cottage extend over the garden, Chapel Stile roof tops then onto Lingmoor and the fells beyond. Fully refurbished, the cottage has been tastefully decorated throughout. Accessed through a side gate, with path leading to the front porch. Entrance is into the open plan lounge and dining area. Comfortable seating for 4 people to one side, and dining table with chairs to the other. The kitchen is open plan to this area, with a breakfast bar and stools separating the two. All the modern conveniences, with the benefit of a washing machine and dryer in the utility building.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, the double bedroom has a king size bed and ensuite bathroom with shower over bath. The twin bedroom has two standard 3ft single beds. Also on the first floor is a bathroom with shower over bath, sink and w.c. Both bedrooms have superb views of Chapel Stile and towards the fells, and are spacious and light, being decorated in gentle colours.
From the porch and across the path is the south facing garden, with sloped grassed area and mature planting.
The property benefits from gas 'lpg' central heating, and wood-burning stove.
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. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
Fire Pack / Logs available to purchase form the Good Life Office.
Parking for the property consists of one off road (but road side) space for a small/medium car.

We have been very impressed by the whole process. It would be nice to be able to click on individual pictures of each property rather than watch them scroll through every time.Mrs Joanna Cairns - 8th September 2015
To be able to do something different everyday - walk, cycle, swim in the river, visit caves, pond dip - all without having to get in the car has made Chapel Stile our favourite location yet. Mrs K SmartMrs Kay Smart - 23rd August 2015
Lovely peaceful cottage. Well fitted out, and ideally situated for walking straight from the door. The shop, tea rooms and pub in the village were all very friendly. We hardly used the car and loved the fact that there were so many walking options. The cottage is also really dog friendly. We hope to return soon :-)Mrs Stephanie Cooper - 29th June 2015
Very comfortable and ideally situated to access excellent walks.Mrs Karen Lamb - 12th June 2015
