A unique, substantial holiday home, with picture windows capturing far-reaching vistas across the Lake District, and in a great location for immersing yourselves in nature.

Does the thought of a luxurious and peaceful haven with staggering views sound appealing to you by any chance? If so, then take a look at the stunning cottage, an indulgent, award winning property sleeping up to eight people in four well-appointed bedrooms and boasting plenty of gorgeous socialising space for your party to enjoy. Situated on the edge of the charming village of Ennerdale Bridge, it's a wonderfully designed home benefiting from unparalleled fell views across the Ennerdale Valley. This property has been well thought out to make the most of the sights and and at night you can even enjoy breathtaking stargazing opportunities from this Dark Sky Discovery Site!

Lake district without the crowds,Ennerdale Bridge is a delightful village with a strong community feel. Just a short walk from the cottage are two well loved local pubs serving home-cooked food and real ales and a lovely newly built cafe called The Gather that offers light meals and acts as a village shop and visitor hub. The Gather also run activities for children in school holidays, together with events for adults ranging from yoga, art exhibitions and photography to bat walks, film shows, live bands, reading and craft groups. Just a short stroll from the cottage is a play park providing a football pitch, tennis courts, basketball, climbing frame and swings.

The walk around Ennerdale Water is recognised as the number 1 greatest autumn walk in the UK (The Times, 2020) and the surrounding valley is a rare Lakeland gem offering absolute seclusion should you choose to seek it out. The head of the valley is a forested habitat for deer, badgers and red squirrels whilst the clear waters of the lake are a home to rare Arctic Char and even otters! Walks for all abilities are exceptionally well catered for with both gentle lakeside potters (the lakeside fire road is a good option for prams, balance bikes and those a little unsteady on their feet) and Lakeland giants to choose from. Alternatively, why not explore the ancient history of the valley by seeking out its archaeological secrets? The cycling in the area is second to none with plenty of forest trails, bridleways and challenging fell roads to keep you going. You could even explore the fells on horseback with nearby stables Bradley's offering picturesque treks on their gentle fell ponies!

If you'd like to explore the wider area, Ennerdale is well situated to reach Cockermouth, Loweswater, Buttermere and Wordsworth's birthplace; Whitehaven, a Georgian coastal harbour town with a rich maritime history; and the sandy beaches at St. Bees. All these areas offer superb options for dog walks, toddler days and cycling.

Escape to this stunning new house in a glorious position in the Ennerdale Valley. Sleeping up to eight people in four gorgeous bedrooms and welcoming up to two dogs, it's a marvelous space to gather the family under one roof for a luxurious western Lake District break. It sits just on the edge of the village of Ennerdale Bridge but is detached enough to feel remote and it also benefits from unparalleled views up the valley. The house is elegantly decorated throughout, making the most of the light and space as well as having countless personal touches to create a welcoming atmosphere that you'll want to visit time and time Again.

Guests enter the house from the front. There is a handy utility space with plenty of room for all the muddy boots you might accumulate on your Ennerdale adventures. Through from here the fabulous dining room opens up. There are stunning curved floor to ceiling panoramic windows letting in every drop of light for you to enjoy while eating around the large dining table with its comfy upholstered chairs.

Another beautifully designed space, it has a comfy sofa, Smart TV with Sky and an elegant Charles Eames style armchair, which is definitely the seat to commandeer as your own! This, being a second lounge, could be described as a snug but that doesn't quite do it justice!

It's also the most stunning room for stargazing in Ennerdale's wonderful dark skies on clear nights. Here, you will also find a games console along with a excellent library of movies and games.

A superb and very comfortable home from which to explore the Western Lakes. Quiet location, yet accessible amenities not too far away. Would definitely recommend for families and dog owners.

Second visit to Lily Hall. Still did not disappoint. If you are looking for a very comfortable stay with loads of walks nearby, a pub 5 minute stroll away and no neighbours your dogs can annoy by barking then look no further.

Lily Hall is a beautiful cottage; not far from Ennerdale Lake on the Western side of the Lake District. It's a lot less touristy on this side of the Lakes, but with some lovely walks from right outside the door (using a newly laid footpath to reach the lake about mile away. The house has a secure garden for medium sized dogs (smaller dogs may findRead more a way out in one corner), and inside it has all the things you need for a lovely stay away (including games, decent internet, Sky TV).

Fantastic property in a wonderful location which allowed walks to Ennerdale water. Dogs loved the large garden which is mostly enclosed (couple of gaps in the hedge that a dog could get out of if they really wanted!) We will definitely return.
