About Eller How House

Eller How House is a unique property in a fantastic location. The Lake District holiday retreat dates from 1827 and sleeps up to six people in three bedrooms, boasting 12 private acres of grounds and an address just half a mile from Lindale village and the Royal Oak Pub. It is ideal for families or groups of friends on holiday together.

You could not find a location more ideal for making the most of every minute of your self-catering holiday in the Lake District National Park. Bring comfortable shoes because the walks through the countryside and along the coast are spectacular in every season. Challenge yourself with a long-distance hike through the southern fells, or relax with a gentle perambulation around the shores of magnificent Lake Windermere which is only ten minutes from the cottage. Cyclists and golfers are exceptionally well provided for with a choice of excellent courses and cycling trails, while those who enjoy fishing, sailing and kayaking also have plenty of options.

If your passion is eating well, then you will love the Lake District. L'Enclume, the award-winning Michelin starred restaurant, is only five minutes from Eller How House, while nearby Cartmel Village Shop and microbrewery will satisfy foodies on a more modest budget. Grange-over-Sands also offers an excellent variety of independent retailers selling the best local produce, and the area has a wealth of excellent local pubs and restaurants.

All of the best bits of the Lake District are within reach when you stay at Eller How House. Not only are guests able to easily access favourite sights such as Windermere and Coniston, but they are also close to popular attractions like Beatrix Potter's house at High Sawrey, Sizergh Castle and Fell Foot. Keswick, Carlisle and Derwent Water are all within an hour's drive.

When you see the staggering beauty of the Lake District National Park, with its massive lakes, mountain passes, pretty villages and bustling towns, it is simple to understand why it is one of Britain's most beloved destinations. It is a place where people can breathe out and appreciate nature in the morning, enjoy shopping or touring a historic building in the afternoon and fill up on delicious food in the evening. Guests at Eller How House can enjoy being close to it all while retaining peace and privacy to relax in comfort.
