Description

Situated in the pretty village of Elterwater in the Langdale Valley, Bens was once upon a time a wheelwright's workshop, now lovingly converted into a spacious ground floor property. Bens has fantastic views towards Elterwater Common and over towards High Close.

A couple of steps up lead to a level entrance on entering the cottage, the hallway leads through the house with bedrooms off from either side. The main double bedroom has a king-size bed, built in wardrobes, large chest of drawers and bedside cabinets. Across the hall the twin room has two single beds, built in wardrobes and small dresser, and an en-suite shower room (Villeroy & Boch fittings). Continuing down the hall, to the left is the main house bathroom with shower over bath, and to the right the kitchen/dining room with Aga Style Esse electric range cooker. The lounge takes full advantage of the views with a floor to ceiling picture window looking out to High Close, the village common and fells beyond; A glass door opens from here to lead you down a few steps to a small sunny private and enclosed patio area with garden chairs.  Lots of people sit out and admire the views with a well earned glass of wine!, The property has exclusive parking on a private quiet road, along with a separate laundry room underneath the property.

What's included?

We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home from 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.

Bens Cottage also has Sky and WiFi.

Reviews

We've stayed in many self-catering cottages in the area and really enjoyed this one. We chose it as we had our son's dog with us and it was listed as dog-friendly. we would certainly stay here again. Ben's Cottage is delightful with wonderful views and the convenience of a village pub and local cafe on the doorstep. The walks along the river to the Co-op in Chapel Stile or to Chester's at Skelwith Bridge are an added bonus. No car needed once you've arrived!Mrs Meredith - 6th June 2017
Our 2nd time at Bens, would certainly recommend and will return later this year .A touch on the expensive side but you get what you pay for.Mr Paul Hart - 23rd January 2017
Bens is a very comfortable & warm cottage. Have stayed here a number of times.Mrs Brenda Davies - 18th October 2016
