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. In the Lake District is home to lots of fabulous independant 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 seperate properties, the larger half sleeping 8 is Oakdene House and the smaller part sleeping 6 is Oakdene Cottage. If Oakdene Cottage isn't big enouh 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 is the double bedroom with king size bed, wardrobe and drawers; and one of the twin bedrooms with standard size single beds, hanging rail and drawers. Also on the ground floor there's a shower room with shower, toilet and sink. There is a storage cupboard and freezer on the ground floor too.
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 and BT sports package, 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, wardrobe and drawers.
Oakdene Cottage has a part of the garden, set aside from Oakdene House. It's seperated by a hedge and is to the rear of the cottage. With well established plants and trees, a grassed area for family games and a picnic bench on a patio area provides seating. A short path from here also leads to the private parking area specifically for Oakdene Cottage, with room for 2-3 cars.
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' on your self catering holiday in the Lake District; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
N.B Please bear in mind that the beds are underneath the eves so there are some restrictions to the head height, please see photos (photos to follow).

Good clean cottage with plenty of amenities.Good location close to shop and pub, easy access to numerous walks. Easy access to Ambleside and beyondMr Andy Jenkinson - 17th July 2016
We stayed at Oakdene Cottage in Chapel Stile. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable. It is perfectly situated, close to a few leisure walks along the Great Langdale valley with panoramic views of the Langdale Pikes. The cottage is also just a stone's throw from the local Coop Store (very useful if you desperately need waterproof clothing!) and the Wainwrights' Inn pub (excellent local Ales and friendly Staff). We will definitely come back.Mrs Agata Ciesielska - 26th February 2016
We didn't expect to find a cottage in the lakes at short notice in August especially for a long weekend. This was the only company that offered a short break at this time of year. Booking on line was easy and hassle free. The cottage was well equipped and nicely furnished. A big plus was the Sky TV included. Accommodation clean and well furnished. Welcome pack a bonus, not all companies provide this anymore. As previously stated, good website, easy to use and details re property info excellent. Nice welcome to collect keys and directs to property good.Mrs Jane Holden - 27th August 2015
