Home from home
We had a fabulous two week stay at Ellerside Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely and clean and very spacious. The grounds are an added bonus and it was lovely to sit on the hill behind the house on the warmer evenings.
The owner was very helpful and easy to contact which is a bonus.
The kitchen has everything you will need plus a few basic provisions like tea and coffee which were a welcome sight after our long journey.
I would highly recommend a stay at Ellerside Cortage as it’s perfectly situated for all that the South Lake District has to offer.
Gorgeous house in a lovely place.
Fantastic house, everything you could need. We all had a lovely time, thank you!
Thank you for your review it is much appreciated, we are really pleased you all enjoyed your stay at Ellerside Cottage and hope to see you, your friends and family some to in the future.
Fantastic property in a perfect location
This is an absolutely beautiful house finished to the highest standards with every fine detail thought of to make the stay outstanding. We had three couples and two children staying and the house suited everyone. There are two dining areas, two lounges and four good sized bedrooms so no-one felt left out. The gardens are fantastic for a lovely glass of wine as the sun goes down but it is also an amazing outdoor space for children playing hide and seek.
The house is right next to the lovely Holker Hall which has great gardens and house. It is also very close to Cartmel for food loving individuals, with L'enclume and a number of other lovely restaurants and bars at the side of the race course.
We had a great stay, would thoroughly recommend it and will definitely return.
Beautiful house in beautiful area
We are just finishing a lovely week's holiday at Ellerside cottage. The cottage is set in beautiful gardens with lovely walks around the perimeter. It is close to lots of attractions in the south lakes.
The house itself is beautifully decorated and spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped and very clean throughout. The bedrooms are very comfortable.
We have had a very enjoyable week, and can recommend the cottage. We will certainly be back to stay again.
Thanks Barbara for everything.
Ellerside Cottage sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms and offers the perfect blend of traditional charm and stylish modern conveniences.
Located just four miles from Cartmel (famous for its sticky toffee puddings!), this beautifully presented cottage sits in the Cumbrian village of Cark, within easy reach of both the coast and the Southern Lake District's many attractions.
Recently refurbished, Ellerside Cottage offers a high standard of self-catering throughout with plenty of space for families and groups of friends to relax and unwind in comfort.
Socialise and cook in the kitchen with breakfast bar and seating area to keep the cook company; enjoy a celebratory meal in the grand dining hall; or retire with a night cap to one of the two comfy lounges (both with attractive fireplaces which house a gas fire and log burner respectively).
During the warmer months, guests can enjoy the outside living space where there is plenty of room for children to let off steam, alfresco dine on the sun terrace or simply relax with a good book on the lawn.
Sitting on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park, the cottage provides the benefit of being away from the busier tourist traps, whilst being within driving distance of a wealth of attractions.
The tip of Lake Windermere is only six miles away, with Coniston, Grizedale, Hawkshead, Ambleside and Kendal all within easy reach.
Outdoor activities abound in the Lakes vast outdoor playground. Spend your days climbing mountains, strolling around lake shores, walking the coastline, horse riding, bird watching, mountain biking, sailing, canoeing and hot air ballooning to name just a few.
Or alternatively, enjoy a more sedate Lake Cruise on Windermere; nostalgic trip on the Haverthwaite Steam Railway; wandering around magnificent Holker Hall with its splendid gardens and deer park (just up the road from the cottage); or a day at the Edwardian seaside town of Grange.
