Does the thought of a luxurious and peaceful haven of a place with staggering views sound appealing to you by any chance? If so then take a look at the stunning Lily Hall; an award winning recently built property sleeping up to eight people in four well-appointed bedrooms and boasting plenty of gorgeous socialising space for your party to enjoy. Situated just on the edge of the charming village of Ennerdale Bridge it's a wonderfully designed cottage benefitting from the feeling of absolute seclusion while actually being just a short walk to two well-loved local pubs. The views of the fells in the Ennerdale Valley are unparalleled and this house has been well thought out to make the most of them and to ensure every drop of light is harnessed to give it a bright modern feel throughout. You might even enjoy the darkness here as Ennerdale has breath-taking dark skies so the stargazers among you should love it.
The Ennerdale Valley is a rare Lakeland gem offering absolute seclusion should you choose to seek it out. The head of the valley is forested making a safe habitat for deer, badgers and red squirrels while the clear waters of the lake are a home to rare Arctic Char and even otters. The walkers among you are exceptionally well catered for with gentle potters such as the Smithy Beck Trail and the lakeside path to some of the Lakeland giants such as Pillar, Great Gable and Steeple. For the well prepared and experienced among you the endurance challenge of the 18 mile Ennerdale Horseshoe could be on the cards. Alternatively, why not explore the ancient history of the valley 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.
Ennerdale Bridge is a delightful village with a strong local community feel. It has two well-loved local pubs one of which is owned and run by the community, serving homecooked food and real ales and a lovely new cafe called The Gather with delicious cakes and light meals on offer. The cafe also acts as a village shop and visitor hub so you can buy a selection of locally sourced products including milk, cheese, bacon and sausages. Just a short stroll from the cottage is a recently renovated play park providing a football pitch, tennis courts, basketball, climbing frame and swings. If you'd like to explore the wider area Ennerdale is well situated to reach Cockermouth, Wordsworth's birthplace, and Whitehaven, a Georgian coastal harbour town with a rich maritime history. However you'd like to spend your time in the Western Lakes then Lily Hall is an elegant, welcoming and indulgent place to start.
