Daw Bank is a charming Lakeland stone end terrace cottage, in the heart of Chapel Stile in the magnificent Langdale Valley. Dating back to the 1890s, Daw Bank was once the first Co-Op in The Langdale Valley but it is now a welcoming retreat for 6 people. An entrance hallway, with handy ground floor WC and sink, is ideal for storing coats and boots before continuing through to the open plan living-dining-kitchen area. This L-shaped room offers sociable living accommodation, a convivial dining space and a well equipped kitchen. On the first floor are two bedrooms, a king size to the front and a twin to the rear, and the family bathroom. The third bedroom can be found on the second floor, a spacious master king size room with handy adjacent WC and washbasin. At the rear of the cottage is a lovely garden with lawn and patio areas.

Chapel Stile is a pretty village, surrounded by the beautiful scenery of The Landgale Valley. In the charming village you'll find a pub and a well stocked Co-Operative village store-come cafe, perfect for a bite of breakfast before a day out exploring. Fell walkers will delight at what's offer nearby; from the well known Langdale Pikes to mighty Scafell Pike, there's plenty of choice for the serious walker. For a lower level - though no less scenic - walk, take the circular route from the village along Langdale Beck to Dungeon Ghyll, and be sure to stop off at the cosy National Trust's Sticklebarn pub for some refreshment before starting the return leg.

Take a scenic drive along twisting roads to Ambleside, pausing at Skelwith Bridge en route to pick up on some delicious vegetarian food for your picnic from Chesters by the River. Spend the morning indulging in some retail therapy before enjoying a cruise round Lake Windermere from the jetty at Waterhead. Why not head to picturesque Grasmere! Visit Dove Cottage, the former home of William Wordsworth, before stocking up on the town's famous gingerbread, the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing cuppa in your home from home, Daw Bank.
