Update December 2015: The renovation of Daw Bank is now almost complete, with the installation of a brand new kitchen, improved electrics and new bathroom floor. Outside, the whole cottage has been repointed and the new patio will be finished early in the New Year 2016 (the terrible weather has delayed things).
We are delighted that Visit England have recognised the investment the owners have made by upgrading Daw Bank to 4 stars.
Daw Bank is right in the centre of Chapel Stile, a traditional slate fronted terraced house, a short stroll from the Village Store and Wainwrights Inn. During the 1890's, Daw Bank housed the first Langdale Valley Co-op, now it provides comfortable and spacious accommodation for 6 people, spread over 3 floors.
Downstairs Daw Bank has an open plan 'L' shaped kitchen / lounge / diner, with new dining table and chairs to one side. The lounge has comfy seating, TV, Dvd, Xbox and newly fitted wood burning stove, with views over the village towards the store. The kitchen has all the modern conveniences, dishwasher, washing machine etc. and views out over the valley towards Lingmoor Fell. The ground floor also has a separate w.c. The first floor has two bedrooms both a good size, one is a twin bedroom with a super view, the other is a double bedroom with king size bed and views towards the village. On this floor is the spacious family bathroom overlooking the central village meadow, complete with bath (power shower over), sink and w.c. The top floor has a large master bedroom with king size bed with great views over the village, there's plenty of room for a cot and it benefits from having its own tv. Just outside the bedroom is a separate sink and w.c.
At the rear of the house is the private enclosed garden with two paved patio areas and table and chairs, and grassed area. To one side is a perfectly placed bench to enjoy the view and a glass of wine. Undesignated parking is on the village street to the front of Daw Bank.
We want our holiday cottages to be a 'home for home'. All the beds are made up ready for you, towels are included so no need to bring those, and shower mats are also provided. Two tea towels and a set of oven gloves/oven cloth will be in the kitchen along with a starter pack that includes: washing up liquid, kitchen roll, toilet roll, basic cleaning products, a bin bag in each bin and a few dishwasher tabs. This is just to 'start you off'; you will need to buy your own once these have run out.
Fire Pack / Logs available to purchase form the Good Life Office.
Note: access through Daw Bank's garden to neighbouring cottages is permitted, however the garden itself is for private use only.
