Ellwood House

Ellwood House is an 18th century cottage located in the village of Caldbeck. This wonderfully appointed cottage houses three spacious bedrooms, complete with elegant finishes throughout to create the perfect base for families and friends. The ground floor houses a cosy sitting room, complete with a warming wood-burning stove, making this the perfect place to snuggle up during a cold winter’s evening. The well-equipped kitchen, designed with an elegant and fresh atmosphere, ensures that your stay is as pleasurable as possible. Enjoy your lovingly prepared meals within the formal dining room, boasting a comfortable seating arrangement for six guests. Located on the first floor are the contemporary spacious bedrooms, comprising a double, a super king double (which can be made a twin upon request) and a further twin bedroom, each oozing a sense of luxury. Completing the first floor is a luxury family bathroom, featuring a bath, power shower over, heated towel rail, basin and WC. During the summer evenings, you and your guests can enjoy the secluded enclosed garden with patio furniture and BBQ, while the dogs stretch their legs. The BBQ has a cast iron fire pit bowl where everyone can be seated to enjoy its warmth on cooler evenings. You will also find a large barn/utility room outside, which is ideal for storing your bikes. Take a walk into Caldbeck centre, where you will find the local pub, tea rooms and the village shop, taking you just 10 minutes. This cottage is situated on the northern fringe of Lake District National Park, with easy access to the market town of Keswick, as well as Lakes Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite.
