Bens is a lovely, comfortable cottage in what is a peaceful and most beautiful part of the Lake District. There are lovely walks from the door with a number of places to stop to enjoy a spot of lunch. The local Co Op in the neighbouring village of Chapel Stile is always well stocked for the basics so you can park the car and just enjoy a relaxing break. The patio is a lovely place to relax with a cuppa or a glass of wine, weather permitting!

I wish I could relocate this property into all the places I would like to visit. It is so perfect for my family's needs - father with limited mobility, two dogs and me.

Bens is an ideal centre for a holiday. It's warm and comfy with some stunning views. There's some great walking right on the doorstep with some great pubs nearby. Can't recommend it enough.

We enjoyed our stay so much at Bens that we have rebooked for next year. We have now stayed in three of the Good Life Cottages and this so far has been the best.

Cottage exceeded our expectations: Really comfortable and homely and therefore relaxing with an excellent view from the lounge towards Loughrigg Fell. A great location too for walking and great pubs in Elterwater.

Mr Robert Sparks

We've stayed in many self-catering cottages in the area and really enjoyed this one. We chose it as we had our son's dog with us and it was listed as dog-friendly. we would certainly stay here again. Ben's Cottage is delightful with wonderful views and the convenience of a village pub and local cafe on the doorstep. The walks along the river to the Co-op in Chapel Stile or to Chester's at Skelwith Bridge are an added bonus. No car needed once you've arrived!
