The Lake District

The Lake Distict is one of the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom, with its mountains and green fertile valleys, it has inspired the Romantic poets, such as Wordsworth and Coleridge and artists from Turner to Ruskin, who built his home on the shores of Lake Coniston. Visitors from all over the world come to immerse themselves in the scenery, to walk, climb or enjoy water sports.

Sited in the south of the Lake District National Park, Eller How is ten minutes from the southern end of Lake Windermere and fifteen minutes from junction 36 of the M6. There are sea views from the summer house in the grounds and stupendous views of the Lakeland hills ten minutes walk up the fell behind the house.

We are ideally situated for walking on the Southern fells or water sports on Windermere and Coniston. Ambleside is half an hour away and you could be in the northern lakes in less than an hour.

The historic village of Cartmel with its Priory and racecourse is within easy reach, as are the shops at the Victorian resort of Grange over Sands. For garden lovers Levens Hall and Holker Hall are both essential visits. The National Trust estates at Fell Foot and Sizergh Castle are nearby. Beatrix Potter's house at High Sawrey is less than half an hour drive away.

For food lovers L'Enclume, Michellin star winner and number one UK restaurant, is five minutes away, whilst those who want more modest fare will find plenty of good quality pubs and gastropubs in the area. Shopping for good quality, locally produced food is easy with shops in Grange, Cartmel (sticky toffee pudding) and at Sizergh Barn there are branches of Booths Supermarkets at Ulverston, Milnthorpe, Windermere and Kendal.

Newby Bridge

The Lake Distict is an all year round visitor attraction.

There is racing at Cartmel on all Bank-Holiday week-ends.

Holker has its annual Garden Festival in June and has other celebrations throughout the year.

There is plenty to interest garden lovers with Leven's Hall, Holehird and Holker all close by. We open Eller How woodland by arrangement for the National Garden Scheme for spring flowers from February to June.

The South Lakes Music Festival takes place at various venues throughout August.

There is a steam train running throughout the year at Newby Bridge can take you to Lakeside for a cruise.The Motor Museum at Backbarrow has a replica of Donald Campbell's Bluebird. Twitcher's will enjoy a day at RSPB's Leighton Moss.

"A most memorable 60th Birthday stay!"

Every part of this stay was wonderful. Helen took care of everything with such thoughtfulness. The welcome tea tray with home made cake, the quality of everything in the house for our use, the logs provided and fire set - we settled in without delay and enjoyed every minute of this special weekend. Thanks a million - we hope to return with friends very soon.

Thank-you for taking the time to write a review of your pre-Christmas stay at Eller How House. We are so glad that you all enjoyed your holiday and found plenty to do despite the poor weather. Next time we will send you a list of antique shops and auction houses as you could fill a week browsing!

"The perfect holiday let"

Thank-you for taking time to write a review of your stay at Eller How House. I am glad that you all had such a good time. It can be difficult finding places to eat if you have specific dietary requirements but we do have some great local shops and supermarkets. Just a note to say that the Lindale Inn (which you mention) has now shut down but the Royal Oak in Lindale does cater for all sorts of diets (sorry no dogs!).

Thank-you for finding time whilst you are still on holiday to write a review. It was a pleasure to see you again and to meet your extended family.
We do hope that you will be able to come again and will sort out mountain bike hire and trails and some Blue Badge walking guides for you to contact.

"Fabulous House"

The house and garden were gorgeous and had everything you could possibly need. The house is huge, with beautiful rooms including the drawing room and main bedroom. It's extremely comfortable, fabulous bed in the main bedroom. The garden has loads of space to sit out, play games and explore. Helen's food was delicious. The perfect hosts Helen and John.5 stars

Thank-you for taking time to write a review and for the lovely comments. We would love to see you all again, but do bear in mind that the Lake District weather is not always so good.I am glad that you found so much for your family to do in the area and left feeling that there was still more to explore.
