Perfect for couples looking for a romantic get away or if taken with Fell View, it provides easy accommodation for Grandparents or friends.
Situated a short stroll from the Britannia Inn in the heart of Elterwater, the head of the Langdale Valley. Numerous walking opportunities in all directions, you really needn't use the car whilst you're here. If you'd still like to get about the bus stop is just 60 yards or so from the door. The Woodloft is just 1 mile or 15 mins walk to the local Coop Store in Chapel Stile. The Coop also has a super little cafe upstairs, which makes lots of delicious homemade cakes, lunches and breakfasts.
Although cosy, the Woodloft has been well thought out with all you could need, including a slate floored conservatory most often used for reading the paper on rainy days (yes even in the lakes we get those) or cleaning down the dog after a brisk walk down the riverside. Coat hooks at one end and plenty of space for storing your muddy boots and waterproofs. Entry is through the Conservatory (which has its own seating). Through the main door into the good sized open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room. The lounge area has a flatscreen tv, dvd player and electric fire, a sofa and chair, both large windows have window seats for you to spread out on. The kitchen has a good sized fridge, oven, hob, combi microwave and dishwasher and is well equipped with everything you could need if you enjoy cooking, the dining table and chairs are just to one side.
From here through to the double bedroom which has a pretty king size metal bed, wardrobe and drawers, and space for a cot should one be required. Just off the bedroom is a separate utility room with washer, dryer & full sized freezer and from here, access to the shower/wet room with walk in shower, sink & toilet.
The property benefits from wifi throughout, and a parking space 20 yards away. For ease you can unload the car directly outside the cottage, before moving to the parking space.
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.
If you bring mountain bikes with you we can find secure storage for them underneath in a storage area, please ask for details.
*Note to tall people, beware of the original beam crossing the living area.
Please be aware that part of the property is below Fell View so some sound transference may occur.

It was cosy, peaceful and we enjoyed it very muchMrs Wendy Taylor - 2nd January 2018
It was cosy, comfortable and warm and we felt that we had everything we needed.Mr Richard Franks - 17th April 2017
Good range of cottages which are in beautiful places. Clean, comfy and no fuss. Go fell-walking in the Langdale valley from the back door. Wander back, take your boots off, and stroll to the pub which is 173 paces away. The cottage is warm and comfy, plenty of room for two, and everything you need.Dr D Langford - 14th April 2017
Lovely location right in the heart of Elterwater. Perfect size property for two people Miss B Palmer - 1st February 2017
This was one of the best properties I have stayed in in the lakes and would recommend it to anyoneMr Graham Smith - 8th November 2016
great little cottage. well laid out and a good feel to it. we will be backMr & Ms Brint & Gilroy - 22nd June 2016
We have stayed in "The Woodloft" before. It is always cosy and comfortable and particularly like the wet room style shower. Always welcoming when we return from a day out, plenty of hanging space for coats, boots etc. :ove it everytime!Mrs L Waugh - 8th April 2016
Cottage for two had a lot more space in it than many we have stayed at. Love the little laundry room that we christened the ""rock room"". Being Christmas it was a bit too cold for sitting in the porch but could imagine many a Summer's day sitting and reading in there. Lots of hanging space for wet coats etc. Great location. Would highly recommend. Thank you to the owners for Radio Times, prosecco and chocolates! Lovely location, between Ambleside & Grasmere. Great local shop at Chapel Style selling everything you could ever think of! Cheery & helpful staff. Would definitely use them again.Mrs L Waugh - 2nd January 2016
As usual it was a pleasure to use the Good Life company who we always find extremely helpful and a pleasure to do business with. carry on the good work.Mr Colin Cookson - 29th November 2015
Always meet our expectations.Mr Malcolm Green - 24th November 2015
We have stayed in The Woodloft lots of times over the years. It really is our favourite cottage, very cosy for the two of us and our dogs. Can't wait to come back.Mr Bryan Whelan - 29th September 2015
