Elk Cottage is in the most peaceful of rural locations. So well placed for country walks. Exceptionally clean, fully and well equipped. The welcome hamper is wonderful, a thoughtful mix of practical and luxury treats!
Communication is friendly and could not be more helpful. We are already planning our next visit - simply cannot keep away from this idyllic country retreat. Highly recommended.
We have stayed either at Elk cottage or the neighbouring cottage, Jenny’s Croft, 4 times now. Once again, this most recent stay did not disappoint. Elk cottage is so comfortable and homely. It is so easy to relax there from the moment you arrive. It is very well equipped and the welcome basket is always so helpful. Never been anywhere else that tops the range of supplies you get, including a bottle of wine! The outdoor space (although in parts not fully enclosed) is great for our dogs. They love it. Perfect location for the Pennines and Ullswater region of the Lakes. Always lovely to come back from a long walk, make up the fire, and relax!
Our visit to Elk Cottage was idyllic; the cottage itself deserved its 5 Star rating as everything was perfect and the attention to detail was superb! The location was ideal for a quiet retreat and the information on the recommended walks etc was extremely helpful.
My elderly parents and I spent the most relaxing week at Elk Cottage. Our whole experience, from initial booking direct to the end of our holiday was fantastic - everyone involved was so friendly and helpful. We wanted for nothing during our stay, the cottage was so well equipped (even down to a full herb and spice rack). We've never seen a welcome hamper like it before, we felt very spoilt. The cottage was comfort throughout with beds we didn't want to get out of and it was spotlessly clean. A perfect place to relax and unwind - thank you to all concerned.
Booked this with Glassonby old hall and Jenny's cottage for a big family 60th birthday celebration and couldn't have wished for a better place. Accomodation in all three was stunning and there was something for everyone: walks for the walkers, drives for the drivers and a fantastic place to rest for the rest! The complimentary hampers were an amazing treat too - almost more than could be consumed in a weekend, 'doggy-bags' needed. The place was everything we were hoping for and more - will definitely be back! Thanks
Second visit to the lakes this time staying in Elk cottage with family including our 9 month old grand-daughter.
Fabulous quiet idyllic location, a fully equipped cottage to a high standard which was very clean with comfortable beds, travel cot and high-chair to use. There was a lovely hamper to get you started, and a big bowl of fruit. Also had a BBQ to use on those sunny evenings sitting out on the patio area.
Would recommend this place to anyone wanting a little piece of tranquility.
This is our second stay with Rowley estates and Christine and Jilly were once again very helpful and nothing was to much trouble. We stayed here for 2 nights with our 1 year old daughter.
The cottage is in a very quiet rural village and ideally located for easy access to the Lake District. There are a few excellent pubs about 2 miles away from the cottage in the next village.
The cottage is equipped with everything you could ever need and a real home away from home. The welcome pack that was in the cottage was excellent and full of high quality food products.
The only downside for us was that cottage has different levels from room to room so for our young daughter it meant one of us having to follow her around, this was nothing against the cottage and we will definitely be staying with Rowley estates again.
