About the property

Perched in the quaint village of Lindale in Cumbria, is this remarkable period character property, Eller How House.

Built in 1827 by architect, George Webster, Eller How House enjoys a wealth of period features, as well as an extensive 12.25 acres of beautiful grounds featuring an ornamental lake, footbridge, formal gardens and a folly.

After driving up the sweeping driveway, park in one of three spaces, before stepping into the fabulous terracotta house to begin your holiday.

Be welcomed into the light and airy kitchen/diner, where you can look forward to whipping up delicious home-cooked meals for your guests, before uncorking a bottle of wine and settling round the dining table to tuck-in.

Moving through the property, you will find a utility room with a handy washing machine, perfect for putting clothes on a spin after a day of walking!

You will benefit from two beautifully decorated and spacious ground-floor bedrooms, a super-king-size with zip/link and a king-size, each with their own en-suite shower rooms, perfect for those with limited mobility.

Climb the stairs to the second-floor with its impressive high ceilings and period features, where you will discover a third bedroom, a king-size with en-suite bathroom featuring an elegant roll-top bath, ideal for a hot soak after a day of exploring the Lakes.

Cosy up on the sofa in the drawing room in front of your favourite film as the open fire crackles nearby.

Treat your guests to an alfresco breakfast on the private patio before exploring the impressive surrounding grounds.

Grab your walking boots and set out for the day, where you can venture into the local village for a spot of lunch at the welcoming Royal Oak Pub, or venture over to the Edwardian seaside town of Grange-over-Sands, where you can walk the charming promenade, take in nature at The Victorian Aviary Garden or test out your clubs at the excellent golf course.

Explore a little further with a stop at Cartmel, which has become increasingly popular over the years thanks to its Michelin starred restaurant, L’enclume, enticing visitors with its impressive menu which aims to ‘harness the powerful connection between food and nature’.

Stroll over to Cartmel’s racecourse, which is known to be one of the smallest, yet picturesque, which holds annual racing events in the summer months.

Wander through the charming village or hire a Segway to explore at a faster pace, just be sure to make a stop at The Cartmel Village Shop which is famous for its sticky toffee pudding.

About the location


Grange-over-Sands 2 miles; Cartmel 3.6 miles; Windermere 12 miles.

Lindale, a small village situated in the south of The Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and just a few miles from Lake Windermere, makes the area a perfect holiday destination. Set amidst the charm of The Southern Lakes, this attractive village, with handy gastropub, The Royal Oak, makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area. Just a few minutes drive brings you to Cartmel, a delightful village to wander around, famed for its delicious sticky toffee pudding, 12th century priory, National Hunt race meetings and gourmet restaurants. You could also visit Grange-over-Sands, a charming seaside Edwardian town. Take a stroll on the promenade and return through the quaint narrow streets with some lovely tea rooms and specialist shops including a bakery, chocolatiers, and award winning butchers. The Lake District has so much to offer, there is sailing on Windermere, cycling in The Grizedale Forest, Go Ape Treetop adventures, Birdwatching at Leighton Moss and The Foulshaw Osprey Experience. There are also stately homes at Holker Hall, Levens Hall and Sizergh Castle and a heritage steam railway which runs from Haverthwaite to Lakeside. The Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Beauty is also a short journey away. But leaving the best till last, walking or touring in the fabulous Lake District, with its fells, lakes and tarns is an absolute must, most of which is just a short drive or walk away.
