The Space

This cottage is perfect for a lakeland adventure – ideal for avid walkers and fishers with a variety of footpaths as well as Esthwaite Water just around the corner.

Eel House cottage is located along the stunning rural road which takes you up to Esthwaite Water from the Estate. Enveloped in rolling green fields with lambs and forestry, the property offers you the chance to get away from the buzz of the city life and experience true silence and serenity in the great countryside.

The Cottage offers two bedrooms upstairs, with the Master having its own en-suite with walk-in shower, and a twin looking out across the fields and beyond. Downstairs is the living room with smart TV and log burning stove to curl up after a long day out exploring, with the kitchen and dining area just in the next room.

Sit back and relax in our woodland inspired cottage after a long day on the fells in front of a crackling log fire.
