We had a fabulous holiday staying here. The location is great, the views from the balcony are breathtaking and the house is wonderful. We stayed with another family and the facilities are brilliant for this. Separate luxury en-suite facilities for 4 out of the 5 bedrooms, plus an extra bathroom with roll-top bath, meant that we were never waiting to get a shower in the morning! For sharing families this was perfect. The living room is beautiful with high ceilings and the photos don't really do it justice. The appliances in the kitchen were great, including a coffee machine for a freshly ground 'bean to cup' morning caffeine fix! There was everything we needed in the kitchen and we were able to easily cook many meals, not missing a single utensil. The 'snug' downstairs was great and also meant the children had some space to themselves to play in and watch tv or dvds. We hope to return here; having lived in the Lakes before, I don't think you can get a better location for proximity to amenities, whilst still feeling like you are truly escaping and enjoying the full Lake Dustrict experience. Thank you to Hannah who has been great throughout the whole booking process, right down to returning a cable we left in the house by mistake!
We had a lovely week at Fir Garth, thanks. One of the nicest houses we have stayed at in Lakes over the last 20+years, with the most amazing view!
I booked this cottage for 11 people as a surprise weekend for my partner with all her friends and was very impressed. The house provided a perfect location for sociable weekend away with all our friends - the big open plan Kitchen/Diner/Living area was very spacious and was ideal for playing games and hosting a big group roast dinner around the authentic wooden dining table. Also, the kitchen was very well thought out and had the essential utensils needed to cook meals for 11 people (2 oven / grills was very handy indeed). Furthermore, the balcony leading out from the living area is a perfect space for enjoying a cuppa in the morning overlooking the stunning view down the valley. Would love to visit the cottage in the summer where late evening drinks could be enjoyed in this area!The bedrooms were absolutely stunning! Each one was uniquely decorated with a different theme in each. 4/5 bedrooms had amazing en-suites (better than a 5* hotel) with the 5th bedroom being directly opposite a beautiful bathroom with a roll top bath (Nice after long walk on the fells).The location was ideal, only 5 minute walk in to the village where there is a very well stocked convenience store. 15 minute walk and your in the beautiful village of Elterwater where you will find one of my favorite pubs the Britannia Inn. If you enjoy a more challenging walk there are some really nice hikes over the ridge in to the attractive village of Grasmere (1-2 hours) which are rewarded with some wonderful views at the top of the peaks.Overall, everyone who stayed at the cottage thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Fir Garth and we will all be booking again next year. For large groups of friends or family I would highly recommend this cottage for a fun and enjoyable stay in the Lakes.
The other reviewers have said it all. This cottage is as near perfect as any you could find. The view from the lounge is amazing, the location is perfect, the beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of room. What more could you want?
We had a lovely weekend thanks, the weather was perfect! That is a real gem of a place you have there, i could have spent all day sat on the balcony watching the Herdy’s in the field with the Langdales in the background.
We are back home from a wonderful stay in Langdale Cottage - forgot to write in the visitors book!The cottage was superb- loved the views too. Our party ranged from 3 years old to 60-somethings and we all all loved it. Wainrights was good for a family meal and the Langdale to Elterwater path perfect for the kids.One point I would make is that we ( stupidly) used satnav and ended up going along the most circuitous and steep single track roads. Not good in an MPV I can tell you! The directions on the app were much better.Thank you for our stay first class holiday.
We have just returned from a fabulous stay at this very warm and comfortable cottage. The property is located in Chapel Stile which has a brilliant local shop stocking everything you need (including sledges!) and is near to Wainwrights Inn! It is a 5 minute drive to the centre of Ambleside with all its facilities yet perfectly positioned for walking.The driveway up to the cottage from the road is a quite steep but there is ample parking at the top of the hill for all the cars or alternatively the cottage is accessible from the road leading out of the village.The views from the cottage were beautiful, especially with the snow on the high fells.Everything about the cottage was perfect and it is furnished to an excellent standard throughout. The kitchen is well equipped and full of mod cons (some of which took a bit of getting used to) and the living space is a great social place for drinks, food and even a bit of dancing in our case! Every bedroom is spacious, has its own en suite bathroom and each is furnished and decorated in its own individual style. The attention to detail is outstanding.As a family with two young children we thoroughly enjoyed the use of the spa/ swimming pool facilities at the Langdale. An excellent idea for relaxing and spending time on a damp cold day!We had an extra treat in the form of snow, the kids loved the sledging! To warm up we had a very short drive from the cottage and enjoyed a lovely pub lunch at the Britannia Inn at Elterwater.Finally, a big thank you for putting up the Christmas decorations for us, this holiday was a great start to Christmas!The owner, Hannah, was lovely and helpful to deal with. I would highly recommend this property to friends and would love to come back and stay again!
I stayed in this beautiful and luxurious cottage for a rainy weekend. There were 5 adults and 6 children aged between 2 months and 8 years old. We were blown away by the beauty and high spec of the cottage. The next morning we woke up to see the view out of the expansive living room glass wall / doors and were silenced by the spectacular panaramic view of the Langdale valley.We all loved the open plan nature of the living room kitchen diner with its high ceilings, making it a wonderfully social space so we could cook and chat while the kids played in sight. This was contrasted really well by the cosiness and privacy of the snug and the option to go to our en suite rooms.The huge dining table invited us to eat together orvspread a buffet style to graze on all day. The induction hob was new to us and I now want one for home as it is so safe to use.Everyone enjoyed the walk in showers and the kids wouldn't get out of the bath which is a good sign.We had no incentive to leave the house so we gawked at the view from the comfort of the living room by the log burning stove.We will definitely be returning to this cottage.
