Property Description

Peacefully located and surrounded by stunning scenery with spectacular views, these delightful cottages have been carefully converted from the barns of a former farm steading. In an AONB, the holiday properties are two in a little group of four, located between Torpenhow and Ireby on the northern fringe of the Lake District. Attractively furnished, well presented and equipped to E.T.C. 5 Star standard, the living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the outstanding views, including stunning sunsets over the Solway. There are pleasant walks and cycle routes from the door along lanes filled with wild flowers and wildlife. Keswick (on the shore of Derwentwater) and Cockermouth (birthplace of William Wordsworth) offer shops, restaurants, galleries and tourist attractions, the former with a leisure pool and the latter with a swimming-pool. Romantic, quiet and peaceful, yet an ideal base for the Lakes, Solway coast, Scottish borders and Hadrian’s Wall. Sailing on nearby Lake Bassenthwaite. Armathwaite Hall Hotel, a 10-minute drive, offers a swimming pool, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. Shops 5 miles.

Attractive double bedroom, en-suite shower room. Pretty twin bedroom. Single bedroom (alternative sleeping only). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Charming, large living/dining room with electric woodburner, kitchen area. Exposed beams and wonderful countryside views from opening French windows.

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A very high standard of accommodation which is why we decided to revisit this year. Sept 2012.
  2. Beautiful property. Wonderful welcome with scones, wine, chocs. Our every need was catered for and the views were wonderful. Despite bad weather our holiday in such a lovely setting was great. Games room was ideal for kids. Aug 2011.
  3. A lovely, comfortable cottage off the beaten track. Very peaceful and relaxing, great views and helpful owners. July 2011.
  4. Ellen Cottage proved to be an absolute gem. Furnished to a high standard. Equipped with everything you could wish for and a lovely welcome on arrival by the owners. We all looked forward after a hard day’s sightseeing to relaxing on the comfy sofas and looking out of the windows at the beautiful views. Excellent property. June 2011.
  5. This was our second visit to Ellen Cottage, the welcome was as warm, and the cottage as wonderful as our first visit 2 years ago. Our son and his family accompanied us on this latest visit, the two children loved it but their parents found it a bit too quiet for their liking!! We - the grandparents - hope to visit again sometime in the future as we love the cottage, the area and all the eateries with their excellent food and choice of menu, even if we do have to drive a short distance to visit them. May 2011.
  6. Lovely facilities, off the beaten track. We had a peaceful week and were able to get out and about a lot during our stay. We would come again. The hosts left a welcome start to our holiday. June 2011.
  7. Beautiful cottage, very clean and spacious. The owners thought of everything. A very quiet, peaceful place for a relaxing holiday. The welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, wine, scones and chocolates were a very nice touch and well appreciated. May 2011.
  8. The property was excellent. Home away from home. Perfect. Dec 2010.
  9. Lovely cottage, beatiful and well presented. I can’t praise it highly enough. Oct 2010.

  11. It was warm and comfortable and everything we needed was provided. July 2010.
  12. It was nicely laid out clean, safe for our toddler and baby and the owners weren’t stingy with washing up liquid, bath cleaner etc. June 2010.
  13. This is a beautiful property in a fabulous rural location. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage. March 2010.
  14. Clean and well kept accommodation. Extra touches eg: afternoon tea laid on pint of milk, coffee, tea and sugar. It was just such a excellent place to stay with owners that were very helpful and friendly. Nov 2009.
  15. This was the best holiday cottage that we have ever rented. On arrival the owners had provided scones and tea, bottle of wine, box of chocolate liqueurs and the ever necessary milk. Sept 2009.
  16. Wonderful, more than we could wish for in a holiday cottage. Aug 2009.
  17. The location is perfect for a peaceful break and the views are superb. The owners had paid great attention to every detail to make sure that they created a warm welcoming atmosphere. I would definitely go back there again. June 2009.
  18. Beautiful scenery, good facilities for families inc. games room, playground and 2 ponies. July 2009.
  19. Ellen Cottage was like heaven on earth! Extremely comfortable and in such delightful surroundings - we wish our holiday had been longer... hence we have already booked for two weeks in 2010! June 2009.
