The Cumbria/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.

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.
