    About this property

    In an aonb, this holiday property is located between Torpenhow and Ireby, on the northern fringe of the Lake District.
    Peacefully located and surrounded by stunning scenery with spectacular views, these delightful cottages have been carefully converted from the barns of a former farm steading. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the holiday properties are two in a little group of four, located between Torpenhow and Ireby on the northern fringe of the Lake District. Attractively furnished, well presented and equipped to E.T.C. 5 Star standard, the living accommodation is on the first floor to take advantage of the outstanding views, including stunning sunsets over the Solway. There are pleasant walks and cycle routes from the door along lanes filled with wild flowers and wildlife. Keswick (on the shore of Derwentwater) and Cockermouth (birthplace of William Wordsworth) offer shops, restaurants, galleries and tourist attractions, the former with a leisure pool and the latter with a swimming-pool. Romantic, quiet and peaceful, yet an ideal base for the Lakes, Solway coast, Scottish borders and Hadrian’s Wall. Sailing on nearby Lake Bassenthwaite. For something extra special, Armathwaite Hall Hotel, a 15-minute drive, offers a swimming pool, gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room, perfect for couples or celebrations. Maes Gallery and tea rooms serving food daily is within 2 miles. Ireby is within a mile with a warm, cosy pub with log fire, and serving food daily. Shops 5 miles.
    Attractive double bedroom, en-suite shower room. Pretty twin bedroom. Single bedroom (alternative sleeping only). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet. First floor: Charming, large living/dining room with electric woodburner, kitchen area. Exposed beams and wonderful countryside views from opening French windows.

    Chris ‐ 11 Nov 2018
    "Fantastic secluded location; just what we wanted. It is 20-30 minutes away from the wonderful Solway coast and the Lakes. The cottage was lovely, and the decor and the furniture and equipment provided superb. We are looking at coming back."

    "We had a great time, the cottage was spacious, well equipped and very clean and we would definitely stay there again."
    John ‐ 14 Oct 2018
    "This cottage chosen almost at random, turned out to be a very lucky choice.Set in attractive countryside, quiet and peaceful, it was for us a very restful place to stay.It was also positioned relatively central to the northern part of the lake district enabling us to explore the surrounding area without having to drive excessive distances.All in all a very pleasant stay, not forgetting the owners who are extremely charming and welcoming."
    Christine ‐ 5 Oct 2018
    "A wonderful welcome by the owners which was very comforting after my long drive from Lincolnshire, I felt quite at home in Ellen cottage and would be delighted to visit again."
    Lindsay ‐ 10 Sep 2018
    "A comfortable cottage with excellent views. The peace and quiet in the area was wonderful. Lots of beautiful walks and hikes within about half an hour's drive away."
    Karen ‐ 5 Aug 2018
    "A really lovely house, in a beautiful rural area. The friendly owners checked in with us during our stay, to make sure everything was ok. It was a bit further away from amenities, than I thought, which meant we travelled more than we normally would for meals in the evening etc, but we would definitely stay again."
    GEOFFREY ‐ 26 May 2018
    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even though it was off the beaten track. We would definitely stay there again."

    "Excellent"
    JM ‐ 25 Mar 2018
    "Ellen Cottage was a wonderful warm and comfortable place to stay, it was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the games room too. It is some distance from local amenities (hence the score) but we knew this when we booked so it didn't bother us; Keswick was only a 20 minute drive away. The owners visited us to ensure we had settled in and provided a lovely welcome pack for us which was a nice touch."
