Lovely location - plenty of walks straight from the door.

Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed your break. You couldn't have chosen a better location if you enjoy getting out for some good walks. I hope you can come back to explore more of the Lakes soon.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Elm How. The location was perfect for my group of walkers and rock climbers as you can park the car and forget about it for the duration of your stay as all the best walks in the area are right from the front door. Stacks of logs were provided for cosy evenings in and the beds were comfortable and had excellent quality linen. We did have some trouble with hot water in the sinks and bath a few days into our stay but as we had some warm water in the showers and no phone signal we did not contact the company about this. I’m sure if we had it would have been dealt with promptly. I unreservedly recommend Elm How!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Joanne, and I'm thrilled that you and your group had such an enjoyable time! Elm How is in a truly breathtaking location, isn't it? It sounds as if it was the perfect place for you all! Thank you very much for your feedback about the hot water - I would have been more than happy to send someone out to take a look but appreciate that it was difficult for you to find phone signal in the area. I'll be sure to look into it for future guests. I'm glad that you all managed to take warm showers, though, and were able to enjoy lovely cosy evenings in after full days out!

We had a lovely stay at Elm How. The cottage was large enough to comfortably fit 8 of us with 2 dogs, and it was great to have both a large kitchen and living room to enable the group to eat and relax together. Everything was clean and tidy. The cottage is quite remote but that was perfect for us. We loved the proximity to Helvellyn- the view as you drive towards the cottage is stunning!

Hello Tara, it sounds as though you all had a wonderful time! It's just the most beautiful location, isn't it? And the scenery certainly refreshes a long drive! You will have to come back again soon to take in even more of the views!
