Holiday Cottages for 2

September 19, 2016 by Wayne

Fancy visiting the Lakes? Take a look at our Holiday Cottages for 2 Lake District-

Our holiday cottages and apartments are located within the converted 17th century stone farm buildings at Ellen Hall. We specialise in cosy romantic holiday cottages for 2 people, with easy access around the  romantic setting of the Lake District, Solway Coast and Hadrian’s Wall. Furthermore the cottages are owner run, there are no agency fees added and this makes a holiday in the Lakes very affordable indeed. The attractive market towns of Cockermouth and Keswick are well within a half hour’s drive and the city of Carlisle is just over a half hour’s drive too.
Our selection of romantic holiday cottages provide the setting for what promises to be a refreshing experience and a truly relaxing time for couples, hidden away in the peaceful Ellen Vale.

We accept pets in many of our holiday cottages for 2, with one dog included in most prices. See just how popular our holiday cottages are for dog lovers- Dog friendly holiday cottages for 2.

  • Barn Holiday Cottages (Salkeld & Dykes)

Our holiday cottages for 2 are perfect for honeymoons, special anniversaries and surprise weekends away, or those who quite simply like to enjoy the luxury of a traditional English cottage. Salkeld and Dykes holiday cottages are open to the wooden beamed rafters, the lounge areas are furnished with cosy chairs & sofas – just right for snuggling around the log burning stoves, TV,  and DVD. The lofted/galleried bedroom areas have a four-poster bed and mahogany furniture plus a second TV. The bathrooms have bath with shower over; sliding doors convert the bath to a steam cubicle with seating for two.

The hot tub is just opposite these holiday cottages and is available for private hire during your stay. See our hot tub page here- HOT TUB

Open fire, four poster bed and steam cubicle, perfect for romance. 
Offers a larger living and dining area than Dykes cottage and the bathroom is en-suite upstairs.

Free Wi-Fi and ample parking included in all cottages.


Dykes Cottage

Also has an open fire, four poster bed and steam cubicle.

A little smaller than Salkeld and so just that bit more intimate. The bathroom is on the ground floor, incorporating a shower/bath and stem cubicle. It also has a little balcony immediately outside the bedroom. Just like all our cottages the storage heating is included in the price.


  • Stables Holiday Cottages (Parlour, Stables 2,3,4 and Hayloft)

The Stables Cottages have been converted from the original stone built stables, hayloft and milking parlour. Each cottage retains the stable door entrance (with shutter doors) and the upper hayloft opening is now a French window affording views over the courtyard to open farmland, letting in light and fresh air, and giving access to the shared balcony. All have the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living accommodation upstairs to make the most of the morning light through the french windows which lead out onto a shared balcony.

Parlour Cottage

This cottage is the largest of the stables cottages, it also has a four poster bed and a Swedish designed log burner. The bathroom boasts a large hydro-therapy shower cubicle with seat.

The lounge and kitchen area is spacious and bright, with large windows and french door over looking green pastures.

Hayloft Cottage is the smallest of the five stables cottages, perfect for those on a budget, or guests simply requiring a pied-a-terre from which to explore the area, or for anyone holidaying alone and having time to enjoy the countryside by themselves.

En-suite shower and fully fitted kitchenette.

Cosy and warm for the winter months with an electric flame effect stove. Please note: Stables 2 is the only cottage that we do not accept pets in.

Wi-Fi is included free in all cottages.
