A splendid recently upgraded 18th century stone cottage with lovely garden. Situated in an elevated position in the pretty village of Caldbeck. Sleeping six it is ideal for families or groups of friends wishing to explore the area.
Ellwood House is an 18th century stone built cottage located in an elevated position in the village of Caldbeck in the northern fells of the Lake District with open views. High Pike can be seen immediately due south of the cottage in the picturesque expanse known colloquially as Back Skiddaw. Just 100 yards across the field below you will find Gill Beck which runs through the village with a footpath just behind. The area is great for exploring on foot or bike, and the Cumbria Way and Reivers Route both pass through the village. For those who still have energy left from walking the fells, tennis courts are available for booking just 200 metres away. The local pub serves excellent bar meals and there are many more places to eat in the surrounding villages.
The cottage has benefited from a major upgrade which has included the installation of a cast iron wood burner, which provides a wonderful focal point and is great to cuddle-up in front of after a day on the fells, and fitting of a solid oak floor.

CALDBECK Wigton 7.5 miles; Carlisle 12 miles; Keswick 16 miles; Cockermouth 17 miles. The charming Cumbrian village of Caldbeck is situated on the northern fringes of the Lake District National Park and is surrounded by beautiful moorland and fells. It’s a classic stone built village with a church, pub, village green and duck pond. The church dates back to the 12th century and is famous for being the resting place of the renowned huntsman John Peel. Although in every sense a ‘traditional working village’, the local craft centre at Priest Mill and the riverside walks to the Howk gorge, draw visitors to Caldbeck. The village is an ideal base for the northern Lakes, the market town of Keswick, as well as Lakes Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite. The natural beauty of the Solway coast, well-known for its golf courses and the town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth are close by, whilst also within driving distance is the cathedral city of Carlisle, Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Borders.
