Fell Foot Cottage Family Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
Originally part of a working farm, this cottage has been delightfully converted to offer accommodation for groups of up to four people. It retains many original features such as exposed beams, slate flooring and a wood-burning stove to relax in front of on chilly winter evenings. This atmospheric hideaway is served by stunning views of the Langdale Pikes and is close to a number of walks and cycle-trails. The living accommodation has been designed in an open-plan style and there is a well-equipped kitchen although, should you decide to have an evening out, the local pub is only a mile away.

Little Langdale is a hamlet of a few scattered stone houses and a pub in the valley of the same name. The Three Shires Inn gets its name from the location two miles away where the boundaries of the old counties of Cumberland, Westmorland, and Lancashire met. At the head of the valley is Blea Tarn. Offering stunning views of the Langdale Pikes, Blea Tarn is a small lake in one of the most picturesque parts of the Lake District and contains brown perch, trout and pike. Stone built Blea Tarn House, built in the 1600s, sits nearby. Other attractions in the area include the remains of a Viking settlement, where the Viking open-air parliament was held and new laws proclaimed. Nearby, Green Burn Mine is widely regarded as the best preserved copper mine in the Lake District. There is a beautiful walk to these remote remains, offering unsurpassed views of the region.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Self-Catering Reviews

Mr Thornton, August 2020

We paid a lot to stay in this cottage and expected much better.. The kitchen was tired and scruffy, the rug and carpets were dirty (they'd been vacuumed, but they need a proper clean), we were not provided with starter fuel, the outside area was littered, there were extra items (e.g. Christmas tree) stuffed into a corner of the downstairs room, and the dishwasher didn't clean the dishes properly. The setting is beautiful, though the road immediately outside the cottage is very busy.

Fell Foot cottage is a great location to explore the Langdale Fells and is in walking distance of some great pubs via footpaths on the most part although this does mean a few miles walk but worth it.. The cottage is quite close to the road leading up to Hard Knott pass so a fair bit of road traffic during the day but early morning and late evening this got less frequent allowing us to enjoy the peace of this lovely valley and listen to the local birds of prey hunting. The cottage itself is comfortable and offers two good sized sofas in the main room allowing a nice stretch out after a long days walk watching the large screen TV before heading out in the evening. The bedrooms are cosy but there is enough space for storing clothes, I liked the staircase the best as it gives a great cottage feel. There is room for improvement in the rear yard to give a better outside sitting experience although this being the Lake District this might not be so relevant but we were blessed with good weather. I did manage to get wi-fi occasionally with BT-guest access although this was not reliable and forget a mobile phone service .. it was a great place to forget the world and enjoy the scenery. Overall I'd stop at Fell Foot again to continue to explore the Langdales.

Overall, the cottage was lovely and comfortable, for a small family.. We had problems, trying to get hold of the owners, to fix a light, and alarm problem. And when we finally did, problem, was unsolved. So cut our stay short.

A 17th century cottage in a stunning location ! If you’re looking for 5 * luxury this is not for you however if you’re looking for a cosy hide away in a perfect picturesque location this is it. Cottage is not spotless but kitchen bathroom and bedding were all clean. Kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Enough logs were provided for the first night but no instructions on where to find any after this and no one to ask ( my husband went searching and found a wood shed) Towels have seen better days but we’re clean. No phone signal or internet so perfect to hide away from it all. Will definitely be returning

Unless you are desperate do not part good money to stay here.. We did and i regret it deeply. The place was freezing when we arrived at 5pm and frankly, damp too. The host had failed to leave sufficient wood to light a meaningful fire.. exactly two logs and perhaps a tenth of a bag of kindling. We lit our newspaper and that was it. So i ran the gauntlet and found a wood store in the building three doors down, with no idea who it belonged to. Nobody was in the buildings so i filled a recycling Tescos bag with odd bits of logs and timber amongst the macabre garage/shed with pieces of kids toys and broken pieces of metal. In the morning i did the same as it wasnt obvious what else we could do to try and get heat into the kitchen/living/dining room. As i did a man appeared asking what i was up to. So i explained and asked if he was the owner. With his face a few inches from mine he asked why we hadnt sought permission, to which i said that there hadnt been anyone to ask the previous night. He said i needed to be aware that the 'itinerary' said wood would be provided on arrival but he had other business interests to deal with, and that i should have 'followed protocol' and waited to ask. I said that there had been no note to say that nobody would be on hand to speak to, that there is zero mobile phone coverage, and there isnt a land line to call from. I said i'd replace the wood if he wished for me to do so. He didnt seem interested in that notion. The wood is one thing (and he provided none for our 3 day stay btw), but really ... three pieces of a solitary toilet roll, one dishwasher tablet, an empty bottle of washing up liquid, crockery from the 1950's, a frying pan which cannot conduct heat as it doesnt sit flat. Why not just take everything out and insist people bring all of their own stuff? The bathroom is a horror show, as is the 'patio'. Nobody in their right mind would sit out there with the pervasive smell of silage eminating from just the other side of the unkept wall? Keep our almost £600 for the 3 nights, and invest in your dilapidated property. Please tel your guests that you have a sky box and advertise it so, but you dont subscribe at all, so its simply an ordinary tv. Its not a big deal but symptomatic of a money grabbing attitude that shows scant regard to your 'guests'. The location is obviously its main selling point, but we dreaded having to come back into the place after walking and that shouldnt need to be the case.

It's a great location and there's a stunning view of the Langdale Pikes from the window of the living room but that's about all this cottage has going for it. Sadly it is too poorly equipped and too poorly cleaned to justify the fairly high rent. All of the cutlery, crockery, utensils etc. are of a quality that you would feel embarrassed taking to a charity shop. There might be a 'new' big screen TV and Sky box but both are quite ancient and have clearly been dumped in the cottage when they were replaced with better models elsewhere. No thought at all has been given to equipping the cottage properly. For example there is a floor lamp in the corner between two settees which is operated by a foot switch which you can only get to by literally climbing onto the settee and leaning over with your hand. There is a broom in one corner but no dust pan or hoover that we could find so if you want to do the decent thing and keep the floor a bit tidy your only option is to sweep the dirt into a corner. The fridge didn't seem to work too well possibly due to the big hole in the side. The 'small library of books' mentioned in the description is just a dozen or so old books on the window sill but if you wanted to read one you'd need to brush off the cobwebs and dirt first. Don't move the side table by the settee either unless you are happy looking at all the cobwebs and dirt around the legs. Maybe this is considered quaint for an old cottage but quaint and clean are not exclusive. Great pity really as this could be a very nice cottage if only the owners cared about it. For a cottage at this price you expect cleanliness, decent equipment and some thought into making the place as comfortable and convenient as possible but, sadly, this is all lacking. Still there's that great view from the side window but don't bother looking out of the front window as that just overlooks the rubbish bins. The owners can't even be bothered to put the bins round the corner out of sight.

This cottage is situated off bitten track in the middle of some fantastic Lake District walks accessible to all levels.. It is authentic old cottage, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We loved it.

Really nice comfortable cottage set in spectacular landscape, a lovely place to stay..

One of the pictures show an old television setup.. I was presently surprised to find that the owner has updated this to a large HD flat screen with DVD player and basic SKY box. There are lots of really lovely local walks but found the local pub a little too far to get to by foot. Cottage is very well equipped, clean and tidy. Heating is small oil filled radiators and a lovely wood burner in the lounge. Would recommend this cottage for a lovely stay in the heart of the Lakes.

The holiday cottage is surrounded by beautiful mountains and offers stunning views of the countryside.. Great walks at the doorstep. The local people are very friendly and helpful. The cottage offers a good comfort for visitors and creates a very cosy atmosphere. The cottage is very well equipped and is situated in a great location surrounded by lovely mountains, therefore is offers fabulous views of the Lake District. The cottage has got electric heaters and a log burner, but you need to be aware to buy plenty of logs beforehand in order to keep the place warm as it can get very cold, especially in winter months.

Cosy feature-filled cottage in amazing location.. Plenty of walks from the door and fantastic scenery. Comfortable place to relax after a hard-day's walking. Two good pubs within walking distance for an evening meal treat.

Very frendly greeting outstanding scenery walks were definitly straight from the door seven days of pure bliss
Mrs Butler

We've been to Fell Foot Cottage before and returned because we love its isolation and silence at night, and being able to walk from the door of the cottage. It's comfortable and a perfect place to collapse after a long day in the hills.
Mrs Ratchford
April 2016
The cottage was perfect for the location; cosy, quirky and full of character. The views from every window were spectacular and we had many fantastic walks straight from the doorstep. The log burner was a treat to come back to and we spent quality family time relaxing in the most perfect surroundings. Would definitely recommend to anyone who appreciates getting away from it all.
Mr Little
July 2015
The views from this cottage are spectacular! We've stayed at the lakes several times, but Fell Foot gave us seclusion. You are minutes from the shops and several great spots, yet far enough away to feel alone in the hills. Walks from the cottage are terrific, and it's right at the start of Wrynose Pass. We'll definitely return.
Mr Hodson
June 2015
I Loved the atmosphere of the cottage and it felt very welcoming after a day out on the fells. I Highly recommend this cottage.
June 2015
A beautiful old cottage nestled in a valley a mile or so west of Little Langdale. As such, it is remote but if you like to be away from a town, this is perfect with loads of hiking from the front door. Very comfortable with wood burning stove to help keep room warm. Kitchen did lack a few basic amenities - kitchen foil, washing up liquid, kitchen tools and such. But, all appliances worked, fridge, 4 burner stove and wahing machine and dishwasher. 4 people might be a bit cramped, but for 2 of us, it was fine and bed very comfortable.

Mrs Hulme

It was well situated in a picturesque location. There were brilliant walks and good food at The Three Shires. The farmer had prepared the log fire and everything was just perfect. Would book again and would highly recommend this cottage.

This is a beautiful old cottage that has been made very comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The location is stunning and the people running it are very friendly. We had a most enjoyable week and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends.

The location of the cottage is amazing, the views are fabulous and there are a whole range of walks literally from the front door. The cottage was warm when we arrived , a lovely start to the holiday.

as there was no mobile phone signal and no phone in cottage we were glad there was no emergencies no neighbours no instructions about anything discovered p ub 1 mile awayfelt isolated

A very nice in-character restoration in which we had a very pleasant stay. Be prepared to duck under the beam over the inglenook fireplace - you will learn, but then you'll forget again! The owner was very helpful when needed. No mobile signal for miles, but that could be a blessing. A surprising amount of walkers and passing traffic for such a remote road, but that was a reflection of a very fortunate week weatherwise. Great countryside and, from the guestbook, we won't be the last planning to return there.
January 2011
The cottage was well equipped and in a beautiful location, but staying in the winter, my friend and I found it very cold. The storage heater in the living area was totally ineffecient and as we had paid the extra fuel supplement of ?20 for 3 days, we felt we should have been warmer. Also it was difficult to buy logs for the wood burner as only one fire's worth of logs were left by the owner.
Mrs Willing
October 2010
Loved the character and location of the cottage and we all enjoyed the wood burning stove in the evenings. We were able to go on walks from the cottage, and Ambleside and the villages in the Langdales were easily accessible.

Location - absolutely perfect. Owners more than helpful. Very cosy cottage and ideal location for walking.
Mrs Ore

This is a lovely property to take you back in time - excellent if you like historic things, with 'Ting Mound' just a few yards away and Roman ruins close by, plus beautiful views on the walk to Blea Tarn. Best of all there is NO mobile signal so making for a peaceful holiday - Perfect!

Mr Appleby

The cottage was charming, the location was excellent and exactly what we wanted and the hospitality of the owners was exceptional. Truly a fantastic holiday.
December 2009
Lovely comfortable and well appointed cottage but not as quiet as we had hoped as there was a surpringly rather busy road immediately outside. Great for walking directly from the cottage and within a mile or so there was a delightful pub but one would need a torch to get back after dark.
December 2009
although we know the lakes well fell foot cottage was a wonderful homely cottage full of history, it is right beside the start of the wrynose/hard knot pass so single line traffic outside the windows but not a problem it all added to the atmosphere especially with THE LANGDALE PIKES in full view, lots of walks right from the door, it is very rural and picturesque away from everything. We would certainly stay there again, the owners live next door & are both very friendly & helpful the cottage has everything you need
October 2009
Liked the location and views and the wood burning fire.

Ms Coles

We were really impressed with both the area and the cottage itself, the views from the cottage were stunning. There were loads of places to visit all within easy travelling distance. The cottage was as a cottage should be, beams, stone floor etc. We just wish we had booked it for a week in the summer but we will definitely be holidaying with Sykes Cottages again, and I have recommended you to my friends.

Lovely hideaway, away from the hustle and bustle of the main Lake District. Quiet and cosy. Excellent for walking.
