Oakdene House is 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 Co-op Store and the Wainwrights Inn pub. The town of Ambleside is just 10 minute drive away, with Grasmere and Windermere is just a little further. There's a huge choice of cafes, restaurants and bars in these nearby towns. The southern area of the Lake District is also home to a range of fabulous independant businesses, meaning there are lots of interesting and unique shops and galleries for you to enjoy during your holiday in the Lake District.
Oakdene House was extended and split into two properties some time in the 80's, the larger half sleeping 8 being named Oakdene House and the smaller part sleeping 6 named Oakdene Cottage. Enjoy a self catering holiday in the Lake District at Oakdene House as a party of 8. Alternatively you can book both Oakdene House and Oakdene Cottage for up to 14 people, to find out more about both properties CLICK HERE.
The entrance into Oakdene House is through a porch area, where there's plenty of room for muddy boots and walking gear. The ground floor is mostly open plan with a large lounge, dining and kitchen area. The lounge has a view towards the front of the house, comfy seating for 8, TV including a full Sky and BT Sports package, blu-ray player and docking station. The dining area has an oak table and chairs for 8 guests. This is a great spot for the whole family to enjoy a delicious meal together. The table also opens out to seat 14 if both Oakdene House and Oakdene Cottage are booked by the same group. This is perfect for family get togethers! There are doors leading to the patio and garden where you'll find a table and chairs. The kitchen is modern and has an electric hob, double oven, dishwasher and american style fridge freezer.
The ground floor also has a utility room with washer and seperate dryer, separate shower room with shower, toilet and basin.

Oakdene House is a fabulous self catering property, perfectly situated in the centre of the village Chapel Stile.

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' while you're on your self catering holiday in the Lake District; you'll need to buy your own once these have run out.
