Birch Tree Cottage is a little gem! Up a private driveway, hidden on the fellside with wonderful views over the Langdale Valley and across to Lingmoor Fell. Perfectly formed, the end of a small row of cottages. Birch Tree Cottage (13 Firgarth) has everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The Cottage is a small stroll from Chapel Stile village centre, conveniently close to the local Co-op shop, Brambles Cafe, Wainwrights Inn and also the bus stop if you plan to leave the car behind. There are numerous walks from the door in all directions. For the less energetic, the Langdale Hotel & Spa is a short distance away, their facilities include a swimming pool and gym, cafe, restaurant and numerous spa treatments. French doors from the lounge open up onto a large communal grassed area. A bench seat perfectly placed for taking in the stunning view and watching the many birds and abundant wildlife that visit the area.
Sleeping up to four people in a double bedroom and a twin bedded room (with 2ft 6" beds), most suited for a small family or couple with occasional guest. The kitchen has most appliances including dishwasher and washer/dryer. The bathroom has small bath with shower over, sink and w.c. Off road parking for 2 cars, in a private car park. Please note, the driveway to the property is up a hill, perfectly easy in the car, but not so good for the less able.
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.

Chapel Stile has long been a favourite place to stay for us - lots of walks (both easy and more difficult) from the door step - lakes, rivers and lovely picnic spots all around. Nice places to eat and have a drink nearby.Mrs Brenda Brown - 31st May 2018
Delightful little cottage, warm and cosy, very well-equipped. I was over the moon to find hot water bottles in the wardrobe. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, it was a perfect little base.Miss Laura Brench - 2nd March 2018
