“Quite simply the most magical place we have ever stayed”
Reviewed November 19, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed at Eller How as a treat for my 50th birthday - we wanted somewhere special to escape to and this beautiful house more than fitted the bill. It was beautifully decorated, cosy - thanks to the big log fire, had everything you could possibly need and more. The owners John and Helen were wonderful and made sure we had everything that we needed and added the personal touches like fresh flowers and homemade cake on arrival. It was quite simply the most magical place we have ever stayed, tucked away in its own little world a little slice of a bygone era. We are already planning a return visit. Thank you!!

“Super”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in February 2012

We stayed here with my family and mother and father in law who were visiting from the US. We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely location with super grounds where the kids enjoyed exploring. The accomodation is first class and we had the cosy fire going in the evenings. Everything you would need is provided for. Highly recommended, there is nothing I can fault.

This just a wonderful place to relax. The house and grounds are fantastic and Helen and John have supplied everything you could wish for. The children had an amazing time playing in the grounds and visiting the "fairy castle" behind the house. We will be back as soon as we can

Eller How woodland and grounds are great for exploring, climbing, den making, picnicing and hiding!There have been dragonflis galore, along with a plethora of butterflies, deer, an otter and even sightings of a Peregrin Falcon this year!
We look forward to welcoming you all back for a longer visit next time.
