Holiday Cottages for 2

around-ellen-hall.jpgHere’s a summary of our Holiday Cottages for 2

Our accommodation is all located within the converted 17th century farm buildings at Ellen Hall. We specialise in cosy holiday cottages for 2 people, with easy access around the  romantic setting of the Lake District, Solway Coast and Hadrians Wall. The attractive towns of Cockermouth and Keswick are well within a half hour’s drive and the city of Carlisle is close too.
Our selection of romantic holiday cottages provide the setting for what promises to be a unique experience and a truly relaxing time for couples, hidden away in the peaceful Ellen Vale.

We accept pets in many of our cottages too.


  • Barn Cottages (Salkeld & Dykes)

Perfect for honeymoons, special anniversaries and surprise weekends away, or those who quite simply like to enjoy the best. Open to the beamed rafters, the lounge areas are furnished with cosy chairs & settee – 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.

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.


Cropped-Dykes.jpgDykes Cottage

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

A little smaller than Salkeld and the bathroom is on the ground floor. It also has a little balcony immediately outside the bedroom.


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

The Stables Cottages have been converted from the original stables, hayloft and milking parlour. Each cottage retains the stable door entrance 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 log burner. The bathroom boasts a large hydro-therapy shower cubicle with seat.



Cropped-Hayloft.jpgHayloft Cottage

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.


cropped-stables-2.jpgStable Cottages 2, 3 & 4

Each holiday cottage is “upside down”, with the double bedroom and en-suite shower room on the ground floor, the living room with kitchen and dining area above. 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.
