Wistaria Cottage is a traditional Lakeland cottage, one of two set back from the road in the centre of Elterwater, a welcoming village set amidst outstanding scenery in the Langdale Valley. It was originally a workers cottage, and lies close to the village green with views of the Fells. The property is only four miles west of the lively market town of Ambleside. There are excellent places to eat and drink, and a good traditional Co-Operative Store just a short walk away.
The cottage sleeps four in a twin-bedded room and a double bedded room which has a comfortable Victorian brass and iron bed. There is a modern bathroom with over-bath electric shower.
Parking for one vehicle is to the front of the cottage. Guests can leave their vehicle here and head off walking in the surrounding fells, along the river or dine out at one of the superb inns and eateries in the area.
Pets are welcome by prior arrangement before arrival.
With its traditional Lakeland stone, beamed ceilings and the basic original features we have retained, the cottage is warm, comfortable and well equipped. All bedroom, bathroom and kitchen linen is provided, and towels are available on request for an extra cost. We service and maintain it ourselves, and meet our visitors on arrival.
