Stayed over May bank holiday with our dog. Wonderful fenced in garden with a table for 6 outside to enjoy al fresco dining as the garden gets the sun until early evening. Ample parking at the back of the property, easily fit 3 cars.
The house was clean & spacious with a lovely log burning stove (logs provided). Kitchen, which is about to be upgraded, had dishwasher, microwave, electric stove, toaster and plenty of crockery.
Location is great, quiet yet with easy access to the village and fells.
Would definitely return and recommend if travelling with pets.
We managed to get a last minute booking,it was very well organised and helpful ,when we arrived it was dark and not sure if we had got the right place i rang the number on my email and a lovely young lady talked me through it and stayed on the phone till we got in she was very kind ,the house was realy warm and cosy and clean there was tea coffee and biscuits and milk which was a blessing as it was late when we arrived ,the dogs settled down straight away in the kitchen it was like home to them too , we had a fantastic break and would highly recommend it we will definitely be going back
We recently spent a week in Ellwood House and had a thoroughly lovely stay. The house was clean, tidy and very homely with the beautiful log burner. We were amazed at how well stocked the kitchen was including cleaning products, tea, coffee, milk and some rather delicious biscuits. All this and plenty of fuel for the log burner.
We will most certainly be visiting the property again as it's location was perfect for our family with plenty of parking, beautiful enclosed (great for the dog) garden with patio and BBQ.
I have never met such friendly people as the people in the pub and village shop which may I add has everything you could possibly need. The proprietors of Ellwood House were amazing, we managed to leave something behind but they returned it to us in a very timely manner. They couldn't do enough for us.
Wonderful, can't wait to do it again when the weather picks up.
