Delightful 3 Bedroom Cottage In Central Location
An attractive terraced character cottage in the heart of this popular village, steeped in traditional features such as original beams, slate floor and exposed stone walls yet infused with stylish interior design, fabulous fabrics and luxurious furnishings.
Following a complete refurbishment in 2014, the owners have made the very best of this property, mixing modern and stylish with a very high standard of furnishings & equipment which makes this a truly luxurious cottage. As very experienced 'self caterers', the owners have paid a great deal of attention to detail and their guests needs.
Spacious dining room accommodates six diners comfortably to the front of the cottage with easy chairs either side of the multi fuel stove. Cosy lounge with sumptous sofas, original slate floor and exposed lake land fireplace with a second multi fuel stove, everything to make those evenings in front of the fire even more enjoyable.
Saloon doors lead to bright and airey breakfast room with folding doors onto sunny decking and an enclosed yard, a great way to start the day!
The bright and well equipped kitchen is more than suitable to assist in catering for any self-catering holiday.
First floor to a the first of our bedrooms, all with TV. A cosy double to the front of the cottage with co-ordinated dressing table and wardrobe and a twin bedroom to the rear (next to bathroom). The house bathroom consists of double sinks and double shower and WC, ample storage and in-house stereo system with floor mood lighting.
Upper floor to the attic master bedroom with exposed lakeland stone walls and beams. A luxurious king size bed, large screen TV and large skylight for night time stargazing make this room the favorite!
Due to its central location all the amenities of the village of Bowness are on your doorstep, as well as many excellent walks nearby which can be started direct from the cottage and allows you to take in the beautiful view points of Brantfell and Post Knott.
As well as a National Park, the Lake District received worldwide recognition in 2017 when we were granted World Heritage Status by UNESCO! Something we are extremely proud of.

Another great stay
We have been coming here for a few years and the cottage looks as good as the first time we stayed! corresponding with Tracey is straightforward. We had a slight issue with the shower temperature on arrival and it was sorted within a flash. Still one of our favourite hideaways in Bowness and we plan to be back!
Thank you Alison for taking the time to leave such a lovely review of your last stay at Ellefred. We look forward to welcoming you back again and again and thank you for your feedback.
A lovely cottage for a Winter break in the Lakes
We had a lovely stay in Ellefred cottage. The cottage itself is very well appointed having everything you could need for a self-catering holiday. The beds were very comfortable and the children thought they were in heaven having TVs in their bedrooms. The location was perfect for easy access to the facilities of Bowness. The road parking was ok; a couple of times we ended up parking on the next street along, due to lack of availability of a space outside the cottage, although this wasn't really a problem. Tracy was helpful and considerate in sorting out a problem we had with the boiler. I would definitely recommend this cottage as somewhere to stay in the Lake District in the depths of Winter.
This is a lovely property, great location as it’s in the centre of bowness . Cottage is tasteful decorated and has everything you need for a relaxing stay . One bathroom wasn’t an issue for us as we are a family of 4 but if 6 people stayed I would imagine it would be . We would definitely stay again , but we now have a dog and no dogs at this cottage which is a shame as most of the neighbouring cottages do . Would recommend.
A wonderful stay
We spent three nights at this wonderful cottage. Our party came in two cars but parking wasn't any issue with the use of the two parking permits. There was always parking available down the street.
On arrival, we entered the cosy, warm cottage. I loved the kitchen, which has everything in it that you can think of. We are in 2/3 nights! We bought logs and kindling from the Co-op down the road, and enjoyed a drink or two in front of the fire.
The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great too.
The location is great, with being very central to Bowness but the road is very quiet enabling a peaceful nights sleep.
We would definitely recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone. Would we stay again....definitely!
Thank you Karen for such a wonderful review and it is always lovely to read how much guests enjoy the cottage and the area. We do hope you plan to come and visit us again soon and we very much look forward to welcoming you back.
Beautiful cottage in a great location
We spent 7 wonderful nights at Ellefred Cottage. It truly felt like a home away from home. The bedrooms were very spacious and had extremely comfortable beds. Lots of space throughout, including a huge kitchen with everything you could possibly need. A fantastic bathroom with a great shower and double sinks. We loved spending the evenings in the cozy lounge watching TV. Everything is practically at your doorstep. Very good Italian and Indian restaurants just down the street. And a short walk to all the shops. The lake is a quick 10 min walk. We would highly recommend the cottage and can't wait to visit again!
Wow Jackie, thank you so much for such a wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Ellefred Cottage so much and we look forward to welcoming you back again on your next UK trip.
Fantastic property in excellent location.
The property is absolutely fantastic. Very tastefully decorated, full of character with high quality fixtures and fittings. Comfortably accommodated our family of 6 and had everything you could need. Ideally located within walking distance to everything Bowness has to offer.
Thank you Alex for taking the time to leave such a lovely review and we are delighted you and your family enjoyed your stay at Ellefred Cottage so much. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again.
