“Don't hesitate to book this one”
Reviewed October 14, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Wow - Eller How is wonderful. A grand wing of a beautiful house. 3 comfortable bedrooms and a relaxing living area. Spacious kitchen/diner and the kitchen is fully equipped for home cooking. Spotlessly clean and a lovely, warm welcome from Helen. Guests can explore the extensive woods and gardens and there is access to a fell with spectacular views towards Grange. A little tricky to find in the dark but the directions given were spot on. A good location for exploring the South Lakeland area and Grange over Sands. We'll be back.

“Perfect family getaway”
Reviewed September 28, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Thank you people of TripAdvisor for suggesting this place - wonderful! Travelling with one set of grandparents, two parents and a 2 year old and we couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and beautiful stay. I could wax lyrical for pages, but I won't. Go try it for yourself.

Beautiful house, wonderful sitting room with fire, all tastefully done, large but still warm and cosy and beautiful grounds, only problem is that one doesn't want to leave. Kind and thoughtful hosts

From the first sight of the property from the private driveway to the very last second my family had a truly memorable time at Eller How House. The setting was beautiful and the grounds full of adventure for our young children. John and Helen were brilliant hosts and could have not been more helpful either before or during our stay. The location is close to all the areas attractions yet so peaceful and private that normality seems so far away. The recent restoration work to the inside of the property is stunning and we hope to visit again at Christmas one year to experience the roaring fire! A remarkable holiday!

“Excellent English country house and gardens”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The house and grounds cannot be beaten anywhere. My three daughters and I felt that we had been transformed to the most beautiful English country house imaginable. We were thoroughly pampered by the house and grounds as well as the hospitality and friendliness of Helen and John, who were particularly helpful since I had neglected to rent a car. John phoned for a wonderful cab driver who went out of his way to help us as well. We just didn't want to leave! Helen baked us a beautiful cake, which was so welcomed after our overnight flight from the U.S. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. We would gladly stay there again and again. Thank you, John and Helen, for such a wonderful experience.

“Still perfect”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We have just returned from another excellent week spent at this beautiful house. It was the first time with our 8 month old grandson and we were pleased to find the house has everything you need when traveling with a baby. It is such a relaxing location with stunning grounds and lovely views when you get up to the fell above the property. The owners John and Helen are very friendly and helpful. We would thoroughly recommend and will definitely be returning again for another stay.
