Ellers Close is a beautiful stone built semi-detached property offering plenty of character. Set in a peaceful location and with it's own garden this cottage offers comfortable and spacious accommodation for 4 people. Ellers Close is one of four dwellings which made up Ellers Farm, with the main farm house being built in 1850. Situated in the Loughrigg and Skelwith Bridge area Ellers Close is close to the town of Ambleside, where you have a choice of shops, bars and restaurants to enjoy. Skelwith Bridge, Elterwater and Chapel Stile are also great spots to visit locally, and offer amenities such as pubs, cafes and a local shop too. There are many walks and bike rides direct from the doorstep of this house, so you certainly won't run out of places to explore on your holiday. Loughrigg Tarn is easily accessible, and you can go a little further to explore Grasmere and the rest of the Langdale Valleys.

The front door into Ellers Close leads into the kitchen where you will find a well equipped and recently updated space. Equipment includes ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge with freezer section, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining room is spacious with it's own log burner and dining seating for 4 people. Moving through the house Ellers Close offers a spacious lounge with high ceilings and fabulous views facing south and the garden. There is an open fire in the lounge which is great for the colder months, making the lounge cosy and homely while you relax with a book, watching TV or playing cards. Upstairs from the dining room you will find two comfortable single bedrooms and a large double room with king size bed, all with their own storage and comfortable beds. The family bathroom with shower over bath, WC and sink has been recently refurbished.

Outside the property Ellers Close has its own private, enclosed and large garden with different areas of lawn, seating and a small stream running through it too. You can explore the secret, winding path which climbs upwards to the top of the garden, which is a great spot for a morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening. There is private off road parking for 2 cars.

Wifi is provided for guest use. 2 well behaved pets welcome.

N.B. There's a lovely water feature in the garden at Ellers Close, however because this is located within the lawn area, please ensure children are supervised when playing.


Very good enclosed garden for dogs, plenty of space indoors, a very comfortable house, and good walks nearby.
