Plenty of trees and woods surround you without being in the middle of nowhere. The owner provides plenty of information and good clear directions on how to find the place.

Any issues and Anne is only across the road.The village has 2 pubs within 5 minutes walk and the people are so welcoming. The area has so much to offer just 15 minutes away is Leighton Moss RSPB which is well worth a days visit and then lake Windermere and Morecombe are on the door step.Thank you and we will be back very soon.

We booked this to celebrate my husband's birthday with his parents and brother. The host, Helen, was so welcoming and made sure we had everything needed to enjoy our stay. She was great at communicating ahead of time and the cake to help us celebrate really added a special touch. The grounds are lovely and there is so much to see and do in the surrounding area of the beautiful Lake District. It was really lovely to sit in the library around the fire as a family reading books or playing cards games. I would highly recommend a stay at Eller How House, it truly is a special place unlike anywhere I've ever stayed before.
