A sumptuous, spacious retreat of rosy Cumbrian sandstone high in the Eden Valley, overlooking the Pennine hills.
- Sleeps: 4
A stunning hideaway cottage, family & dog friendly!
Whatever your plans, Elk Cottage has the grace and space for them. Enjoy cosy suppers in the oak and granite kitchen or lavish feasts in your elegant dining room with French windows onto the lawn. Muddy adventures are contained in a utility space equipped with washer, dryer and even a rug for the dog, so your living space stays luxurious. Gather in leather chairs round a blazing hearth for chatter and films, or linger at table to play games as dusk gathers over the hills beyond your windows.
Elk Cottage is a tranquil haven. You’ll long to return.
Private lawns & sunspot patios
Breakfast on your sunspot patio in the crisp Cumbrian air, secluded by dry-stone terraced cottage gardens planted with herbs and lavender. Get the coals glowing on your Weber barbecue to do justice to a wheel of local Cranston’s Cumberland sausage while dogs and kids burn off energy safely on the private lawns. Or stroll around the corner to the pretty play park in Glassonby village.
Unwind & recharge
After long, full days, you can truly unwind here. Children of all ages love the rocking chair and sitting out on the shepherds’ steps from the bedroom to the lawn. Recharge under steaming rainfall showers; loll in the bath. Then sink down under feather duvets wrapped in Egyptian cotton and drift off in blissful silence to views of apple trees and rolling hills.
If you can bear to leave...
Hike and bike the Pennines? Take the Ullswater Steamer to Aira Force? Or simply step outside your own front door and ramble from Dale Raven along the banks of the Eden River. Mark the seasons as you fish for brown trout and pick raspberries on the Estates. For thrill-seekers, there are zip-wires, paintballing, quad-biking close by. For more relaxing pleasures, book a Michelin-starred lunch at Sharrow Bay or see a play at the Theatre by The Lake at Keswick.
