Herdwick Place is ideally situated in the spectacular Langdale Valley. Guests lucky enough to stay here can enjoy mountain and valley walks straight from the front door along with many a climbing opportunity. For cyclists there are numerous routes available from the door including some ultra demanding climbs, through to the moderate 11 mile long Great Langdale Valley cycle trail (which can be joined opposite the house, as can the 10 mile long 'Tour de Langdales' route). 

This mid terraced contemporary house has been completely refurbished to a very high standard and offers a modern, stylish and cosy base from which to explore the Langdale valley and beyond. The house is tastefully appointed throughout with local art and crafts much of which follows the Herdwick theme. Large windows give the house an open feel with excellent views across Great Langdale Beck to Baysbrown Farm and Lingmoor Fell beyond.

Perfectly positioned Herdwick Place is located on the outskirts of the village of Chapel Stile and is just a short walk from the church, Co-Op store, cafe and the popular Wainwrights pub.

The facilities of Elterwater village, including the Langdale Hotel and Britannia pub are within a half mile and in the opposite direction, deeper into the valley, you will find both Dungeon Ghyll Hotels and the National Trust owned Sticklebarn all within easy reach via the valley path.    

In essence the perfect base for couples, friends and family looking to explore the local area.

About Langdale

The Langdale Valleys (Great Langdale & Little Langdale) are a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, from hikers and climbers to fell-runners & cyclists. The area enjoys some of the best walking and climbing the Lake District has to offer. The famous Langdale Pikes, which are situated on the northern side of the dale are one of the most recognisable features of the area, creating a dramatic skyline.

Customer Comments

Thank you for another fantastic holiday at Herdwick Place. This is our third visit and in these slightly scary and uncertain times it has been lovely to come to your spotlessly clean home for our delayed holiday. You have clearly gone to great efforts to keep us safe, which is greatly appreciated. We loved the addition of the bench and table out the front where we happily watched the world go by. We have had some wonderful walks and it has been such a tonic to be here - we have already booked for next year. 
N.S. October 2020

What a lovely week we had at Herdwick Place and thank you for the treats you left for us. We have eaten all of the chutney on our sandwiches this week and our little boy is a big fan of the jam! We visit the area frequently and we usually stay around Elterwater but we will definitely be back here - and also recommending Herdwick Place to our friends and family. Thanks again!
M&M, August 2020 

Fabulous location and a super cottage. Well prepared/cleaned and nicely furnished. Very much looking forward to visiting again. Thanks to Coppermines and the owners for your hard work on Covid safe measures. To be able to open this year is greatly appriciated.
I.C, August 2020

Thank you so much. We've really had the best time and am thrilled that we were the first visitors post-lockdown, the house was immaculate, instructions clear and easy to follow as well as being really informative and we can't think of anything that could have been done differently under the new guidelines. As soon as the restrictions looked like they were being lifted I booked Herdwick Place, I'd had my eye on it for a while and then thought just do it! Thanks again for making it feel like home from home and I hope you all stay well.
A.A. July 2020

Arrived in storm Dennis. We've done lots of walks in the rain, sleet, snow, sun and wind. Loved celebrating my 50th here. Best meal was in New Dungeon Ghyll; meat pie. Yum!
F.H, February 2020

Excellent cottage, very relaxing. Thanks for the jam/chutney. Loved being able to walk from the door. Would recommend the Britannia Inn and Wainwrights Inn.

Very comfortable, homely cottage! Had a right laugh at the sheep rolling down the hill. A beautiful place to stay even when the weather wasn't so favourable! Found some magical walks when the sun shone through. No need for maps, just step out the door? Thank you.

F.K, August 2019

Lovely cottage, well fitted out with all we needed. Very clean and modern and it's obvious it's a cherished family retreat for lake lovers. We loved all the pictures and bought the same ones for ourselves in Grasmere and Ambleside. The cottage was very dog friendly, especially entering and exiting via the back to clean up and de-boot.
G&W, August 2019

Second visit to this lovely property. Excellent weather. Have been on and enjoyed some lovely walks. Hope to be back again.

A beautiful place to stay in the Langdales, fantastic walking from the doorstep followed by a good night's sleep in Herdwick Place. Everything we want from the Lakes in one perfect bundle.
May 2018

In 2014 we started a journey to complete all 214 Wainwright Fells on that journey we stayed in this cottage. In 2015 we decided we would stay here again, we love it. This year Silver Howe was straight out of the door, our very last fell! Can't wait to come back!
N.E April 2018

We've been coming here for years. It's like a home from home. Great improvements, even more so as we can bring our toddler now as the stairs are much safer (no longer spiral). We will be returning!
March 2018

The Langdale Valley is the closest place to heaven on earth, this lovely home just made our stay even more heavenly. Thank you.
L.F January 2018

From the moment we walked through the door it felt like home. Having stopped in other Thrang Brow properties, this is the best. Warm, cosy and very well equipped. We shall definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the near future.
