“Lovely house,lovely setting.”
Ellwood House is ideally situated just 5 mins from the centre of Caldbeck.Although on a road it's a minor road with little traffic other than the postman and the odd farm vehicle!It is spacious and well equipped.We found it had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable stay :) It is also very Dog friendly.The enclosed rear garden is perfect for dogs.We have a very clever Cocker Spaniel who failed to escape so I would say it's pretty secure!Beyond the garden is ample enclosed parking for a couple of cars.We had a LWB VW Van and had no problem turning it around in the parking area.There is also a LARGE garage to secure bikes/canoes or whatever outdoor equipment you may have.On the whole the house pretty much ticks all boxes for an active family holiday!
Caldbeck is a nice little Cumbrian village that is not "touristy" like some others in the National Park.It has a very relaxing vibe about it.The local pub is both friendly and serves excellent quality food.Plenty of nice family friendly walking from the village and plenty of maps/guides in the house.
We will definitely be back!!
