Wonderful return visit
This is our 3 or 4th time at Ellwood and we had a lovely time again. The cottage is well equipped, clean and spacious. As owners of two dogs the safety of them is of great importance to us. The rear garden is perfect and the lovely weather allowed us to enjoy it to the full on return from our walks. Hope to be back again very soon.

Cosy cottage in the countryside!
We stayed in this cottage with my boyfriend at the beginning of December and we loved it. We enjoyed having Christmas decorations and sitting by the fire every evenings. It is very easy to start walks from the cottage as it is in the middle of the country side. The town of Caldbeck has all necessary to spend a few relaxing days in the mountain. There are pubs with local amazing food, grocery shops with local products, cafe/tea shops and a cute little shop with handcraft items. We could enjoy the landscapes and sunrise, we even saw the wild ponies that live near the cottage! Coming from Spain, this was a unique experience and highly recommend to everyone who loves the countryside and nature

A tastefully appointed cosy cottage in an idyllic northern village.
Ellwood House is situated in the beautiful Lake District village of Caldbeck. The village sits in a valley surrounded by rolling hills and bubbling rivers and seems to have survived the less attractive attempts at new building development.. The village retains its rural charm and old-world mystique. It also boasts a wealth of village amenities like a pub, a church, a village shop and hairdressers. The Old Crown at Hesket New Market, a couple of miles away, is well worth a visit as it has its own brewery and gives you a flavour for local life. The house has everything that you need and all the appliances are in good condition. The living space is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with a mixture of old and new and plenty of books if you have forgotten to bring one. The beds are very comfortable and there is plenty of cupboard space to store things away, We had a wonderful stay. Thank you for your hospitality.

Excellent cottage easy walking distance of Caldbeck
Loved this cottage, very well presented with enclosed garden suitable for dogs. The area is marvellous with plenty of walks from the cottage, no need to use your caring you don't want to.would definitely recommend.

Really enjoyed our stay here, the cottage itself is very charming and also we'll equipped. The location itself is ideal, there is a local pub in the village that serves good food and good beer and also a cafe, tearoom, post office and general store. Only 15 min drive to wigton where there is a decent sized supermarket and a number of shops. 25 min drive to penrith and is in easy access of most of the lakes being between 15-60 min drive away. Would definitely recommend and will also allow dogs. Thankyou
