“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was a great place to stay. We went for our 20th wedding anniversary with 4 children and a dog. Loved the history of the house and the grounds. It was lovely and warm and comfortable, nice to come back to after exploring the Lake district. The children enjoyed the space there too and the woods to run in. The owners were very nice and helpful with places to go and local interest.

“Don't hesitate to book this one”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wow - Eller How is wonderful. A grand wing of a beautiful house. 3 comfortable bedrooms and a relaxing living area. Spacious kitchen/diner and the kitchen is fully equipped for home cooking. Spotlessly clean and a lovely, warm welcome from Helen. Guests can explore the extensive woods and gardens and there is access to a fell with spectacular views towards Grange. A little tricky to find in the dark but the directions given were spot on. A good location for exploring the South Lakeland area and Grange over Sands. We'll be back.

“Perfect family getaway”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thank you people of TripAdvisor for suggesting this place - wonderful! Travelling with one set of grandparents, two parents and a 2 year old and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and beautiful stay. I could wax lyrical for pages, but I won't. Go try it for yourself.

“country charm”
Reviewed 24 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Beautiful house, wonderful sitting room with fire, all tastefully done, large but still warm and cosy and beautiful grounds, only problem is that one doesn't want to leave. Kind and thoughtful hosts

“Simply Amazing”

From the first sight of the property from the private driveway to the very last second my family had a truly memorable time at Eller How House. The setting was beautiful and the grounds full of adventure for our young children. John and Helen were brilliant hosts and could have not been more helpful either before or during our stay. The location is close to all the areas attractions yet so peaceful and private that normality seems so far away. The recent restoration work to the inside of the property is stunning and we hope to visit again at Christmas one year to experience the roaring fire! A remarkable holiday!
