                                      Wonderful home in Sth Lakes - highly recommended

                                      5 of 5
                                      We all absolutely adored our all-too-brief stay at Eller How - it was the most wonderful combination of comfort, quirkiness, and location, and was superbly well equipped. From the tea tray on arrival, with the best cake my son had ever tasted (thanks Max!), through the well equipped kitchen, to the roomy bedrooms and spotless bathrooms, the wonderful library, the delighted and unobtrusive hosts, the grand drawing room with views and, a particular favourite, the log fire, we were all enchanted. The weather was surprisingly kind so we enjoyed local walks and further trips in the car, but frankly I would have been just as happy curling up on the sofa beside the crackling fire. We have stayed in many self catering places, but this, without doubt, was our favourite and we very much look forward to returning. Deserves seven stars!
