Ellwood is a beautiful, spacious and extremely comfortable property. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained.The kitchen is fantastically well equipped and a lovely social space. The rest of the house is very well appointed too. Beds comfortable, bedding lovely, 4 ensuite bathrooms a treat. The village of Bridekirk is attractive and there are some nice loop walks from the house on quiet roads and footpaths. Cockermouth, only a couple of miles away, has many shops, cafes and restuarants, a great book shop and some nice pubs. There are countless beautiful walks, hilly and flatter, within a half hour drive of Ellwood. I highly recommend this property.

Hello Jo, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It's a real WOW cottage, isn't it? You couldn't have picked a better location to explore the beautiful Lakes and get out and about on some great walks. I'm thrilled you had a great time and I hope you will come back and visit us very soon.

We are a group of friends who meet up once a year. We found Ellwood met all our needs, was well equipped and we conquered the Aga and cooked some lovely meals. Sitting in front of the wood burner in the evenings was a relaxing end to our day.

Hi there, what a fabulous idea - one of you really should write a book about it! I'm delighted to hear that you had such a great time and would love to see you all again on your next reunion!

"Ellwood" was just perfect. We wanted a large property suitable for family and friends to celebrate my son's 40th birthday. One specific requirement was a games room as, being frequent Lakes' visitors, we knew there would be wet days. The full sized snooker table, housed in smart outbuilding was enjoyed daily as was the table tennis. The "Ellwood" barn conversion was spacious, tastefully furnished and thoughtfully planned. Of course, having all 4 bedrooms en suite was such a plus. As a family, we hope to stay at "Ellwood" again.

Hello Marjorie, I love getting feedback like this - thank you so much! I'm thrilled you had a perfect stay in this beautiful barn conversion. It's fantastic for big family get togethers, isn't it? How wonderful to celebrate your sons 40th birthday in the beautiful Lakes - I hope you all enjoyed some yummy birthday cake. The games room sounds like the icing on the cake (pardon the pun)! I very much hope you will plan a return visit very soon.
