Named by the Guardian Newspaper as one of the top fifty holiday cottages in 2016, Eller How House is the self-contained West wing of an unusual Regency House. The house and grounds were designed in the 1820's by the architect George Webster as his family home. There are many unusual features, from the ornate plasterwork in the first floor sitting room to the collection of 'heads' holding up the ceiling in the master bedroom. You can explore the woods directly from the house and have access out onto the fell with magnificent views.

Eller How House is a holiday destination in itself, set in its own beautiful woodland with space for families or friends to relax. It is an all year round destination with autumn and winter a great time for a short, relaxing break. We offer a long week-end package or why not try a mid-week (four night) stay and enjoy days walking or sightseeing. During the winter the property is enchanting in the snow (we have a couple of sledges which you are welcome to use) and you can spend the evenings round a roaring log fire. In the Spring we have beautiful bulbs in the woodland, you can picnic or campfire in the woods during the summer months and relish the autumn colours later in the year. You might be lucky enough to watch otters in the lake or catch a glimpse of a slow-worm sunbathing in the rocks. There are plenty of birds too, from buzzards circling overhead to tiny gold crests in the yew trees.
Ramble through the twelve acres of mixed woodland and discover ruined follies and catch glimpses of the sea, then out on to the fell, where you can climb up and see a panorama of Lakeland fells, Yorkshire Dales and across the Bay.
