Eller How House
About the home
Accommodation: Eller How House is the self-contained West wing of an unusual Regency Villa designed by the architect George Webster as his family home.There are many unusual features, from the ornate plasterwork in the drawing room to the collection of 'heads' holding up the ceiling in the master bedroom. You can explore the woods directly from the house and have access out onto the fell with magnificent views.
The accomodation comprises; Ground floor-entrance hall, kitchen /dining room, utility room with washer/dryer and freezer. Double bedroom with ensuite shower room with W.C. and basin.
Twin bedroom with en suite shower room, basin and W.C. Inner hall with stairs up to first floor landing with double doors to drawing room with marble fireplace and decorative plasterwork.
Cloakroom with WC and basin. Double bedroom with veranda. Ensuite bathroom with freestanding cast iron roll top bath, W.C. and basin.
Eller How House is a holiday destination in itself, set in its own beautiful woodland with space for families or friends to relax. Come to enjoy the magnificent daffodils or later on, the woodland bluebell walks. Take advantage of the long, light evenings to enjoy a meal out of doors under the magnolia tree. Spring and early summer are a great time for a short, relaxing break. We offer a long week-end package or why not try a mid-week (four night) stay and enjoy days walking or sightseeing with your return to an evening in the comfortable sitting room or a stroll through the woods.

The Cumbria/Lake District region
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, 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, Windermere and Kendal.

We stayed at Eller How house for three nights in the February half term, it is a lovely comfortable house, the open fire makes it extra cosy, it has a very well equipped kitchen. Helen and John who own the house were very welcoming and helpful. We would recommend a visit to Cartmel for the famous sticky toffee pudding, it also has some lovely little gift shops. We enjoyed a walk in Grizedale Forrest (not to long for the kids), the Fell above the house has a lovely view and is well worth exploring. We would certainly recommend a visit to this wonderful house and hope to return again in the future.
Thank-you for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you all had a good holiday here and hope to welcome you again in the future.
