This just a wonderful place to relax. The house and grounds are fantastic and Helen and John have supplied everything you could wish for. The children had an amazing time playing in the grounds and visiting the "fairy castle" behind the house. We will be back as soon as we can

Eller How woodland and grounds are great for exploring, climbing, den making, picnicing and hiding!There have been dragonflis galore, along with a plethora of butterflies, deer, an otter and even sightings of a Peregrin Falcon this year!
We look forward to welcoming you all back for a longer visit next time.

“Perfect getaway near lake Windermere”
Reviewed 31 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

A few months ago we were looking for a cosy cottage near lake Windermere. After seeing pictures of Eller How House we could not get lost of the 'wow' feeling. The house is meant for six, but we finally decided to go just with the two of us. We had a fantastic time in Eller How House. We really enjoyed the walks in the forest just outside of Eller How. Thanks very much for all great care and hopefully we'll be able to go again in the near future.

Thank-you for your response, we are glad that you had a great stay despite the weather! It was the coldest week of the winter and at one point there was a blizzard but you still found plenty to do. We do hope that we will be able to welcome you and your families back in the future.
