Fell View was once an old workshop, converted to a home by John Holmes, the Grandfather of the founder of The Good Life Cottage Company. Built out of the Valley bedrock and occupying a raised position overlooking the main village street, Fell view is one of the first properties seen as you enter Elterwater. A great house for get-togethers, having a large lounge/dining room and long oak dining table. The kitchen is well appointed with with everyday life revolving round the large kitchen table. One of the highlights of this house is the garden that offers great views into the village and the surrounding fells. A great place to sit and watch the world pass by.
Entry into Fell View is up a set of slate steps, through the door into a small landing with hooks for wet coats etc. To the front as you enter is a spacious double bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room. Turning left through the front door brings you into the kitchen/breakfast room with modern fully fitted kitchen with double oven, microwave and dishwasher, full size larder fridge and integrated freezer, dining table and stove effect electric fire - the washer and dryer are kept in a separate attached utility room, accessed from the garden. From the back of the kitchen a door leads to the second double bedroom with king-size bed and en-suite shower room. From the kitchen you go down a step into the Lounge/dining room, with flatscreen tv, dvd player and plenty of space for 6 to relax after a hard day walking. From the small landing, stairs lead down to the twin bedded room with en-suite bathroom; French doors lead out into the garden and patio from this bedroom. The garden can also be accessed from outside should whoever is in the twin room sleep in.
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.

Excellent service from staff in Elterwater office. Problems with dishwasher,DVD player,and some lightbulbs - all attended to and fixed within the hour. First class.Mr Michael Benson - 14th November 2018
Elterwater is a good base for walking. Lots of local walking routes without the need to take the car. Central position for all areas of the lake district. Can't praise area and GLCC highly enough. Mr Frederick Bradley - 24th September 2018
We have visited Elterwater several times and stayed in many different cottages. Fell View is the best property we've rented and we have re-booked for next year. Mr Christopher O'Dell - 23rd July 2018
Nice friendly holiday company.Mrs A Trott - 10th July 2018
Best property in Elterwater in our opinion and such a bonus to have a garden. The Lake district is our favourite part of England and Elterwater is just so special and in our 15 years of visiting this lovely village nothing has changed.......just perfect for us.Mrs Helen Ryan - 5th June 2018
Great cottage with a very homely feel, very warm and bags of hot water in a fantastic location. Would definitely recommend.Mrs Victoria Griffiths - 26th March 2018
A very nice property which suited 3 couplesMr Robert Slingo - 13th November 2017
A very comfortable, cosy and well equipped cottage in a great village location with the bonus of a lovely little garden. Will definitely returnMrs Elaine Turnbull - 14th October 2017
A really nice cottage, very homely and comfortable, we've had a splendid holiday. We needed to rent a cottage with an enclosed garden that a dog could not escape from. The Company team were very helpful in advising that Fell View cottage was the most suitable property, because most rental cottage gardens in the Lakes are not enclosed. The dog had a lovely time sitting watching the sheep go by, and did not escape!Dr M Bamford - 7th March 2017
Lovely property, ideally situated. Lovely place to stay we stay annually in Elterwater and it is ideally situated for any type of attraction so, hopefully will be back soon.Mrs Ann Moorhouse - 6th February 2017
Very happy with the cottage as alwaysMr Paul Fielding - 17th November 2016
This was the third time we had been to this cottage, excellent location and beautiful cottage.Mr Glenn Jackson - 14th November 2016
Fell View is in an excellent location in Elterwater village with its own garden. It is a well presented 3 bedroom cottage and we would certainly consider renting it againMr Barney Lewis - 22nd June 2016
We particularly like the location as we can walk from the cottage. Also the two kingsize bedrooms with wetrooms are ideal for two couples as we do not have to toss a coin for the best room!Mr Frederick Bradley - 22nd May 2016
2nd visit so must be good!Mrs Sharon Rick - 26th April 2016
A very well appointed property with a very cosy feel. We have stayed in many cottages all over England and this was by far one of our favourite. We would differently recommend this cottage to family and friends and return ourselves.Mrs Sherry Pillar - 11th April 2016
The cottage was large enough to take six adults and one large dog without us tripping over each other. It was comfortable, warm and had everything we needed. We all said we would stay at Fell Vew cottage again. Thank youMrs Elizabeth Cleghorn - 7th January 2016
Fell View was a perfect spot to come back to after a full day walking around the Langdale valley. It fit six people very comfortably and allowed good evening meals at the large table, and relaxing in the lounge. The location is great - we parked the car when we arrived and didn't touch it again until we left.Mr Thomas Hampson - 26th November 2015
Excellent locations, customer service and properties.Mrs Gail Stanley - 28th September 2015
Like home from home.Mr John Sloan - 17th September 2015
Fell View is a very comfortable property, great to have an ensuite to each bedroom. Elterwater is in my favourite part of the Lakes with great walks straight from the doorstep no need to use the car.Mrs Carol Tonge - 8th September 2015
Excellent customer service and an excellent cottage super location for local pub and fabulous walking from back doorMrs Anna Humphreys - 3rd August 2015
We had a wonderful time. The dogs loved the fact that the garden was secure so they could stretch their legs first thing in the morning. Elterwater is a wonderful area with superb walks and its quieter than other areas. Terrific meal at the Eltermere Inn .Mr R Brown - 20th July 2015
This is a wonderful area of Great Britain to visit. The location of Fell View is ideal for access to so many different features of the Lake District.Mr G Howes - 17th May 2015
