I'm sure this will be the first of several posts from the Lake District holiday we just took, but I haven't finished sorting through the pictures yet so I can't say how many there will be. I figured I'd start with a quick post about where we stayed.We were in the little village of Chapel Stile, just inside the Langdale Valley. We had an adorable cottage in a row of beautiful slate cottages (ours is the one with door open above). I didn't take any inside pictures but if you're really interested you can check out the video here.This was the fabulous view from the front door, looking out over Lingmoor fell. The grassy area in the foreground was a big communal front garden for the row of cottages, if you stood at the bottom of this you had this magnificent view of the Langdale Pikes in the distance.There was so much beautiful walking to do right from the doorstop. At the side of our little row of cottages was a fabulous little footpath leading straight on to the fells behind.This little row of stone steps led up to a gate and right behind the gate was the most adorable little outbuilding right next to a little waterfallI can't tell you how pretty this little place was. I went for a paddle in the waterfall after one walk, the water was freezing but felt wonderful on my poor tired feet :)
Just before I finish, one last little look at the row of cottages as seen nestled in to the fell side from the other side of the valley bottom.I could have quite happily moved in to this wonderful little place forever, but sadly all holidays have to come to an end at some point.
