Introducing The Lake District
The Lake District National Park in the beautiful county of Cumbria is one of the best tourist and holiday destinations in England. Now to be nominated as a World Heritage Site in 2016, this area of great natural beauty offers an enormous range of attractions, both natural and man-made.
With breathtaking mountain scenery, sixteen sparkling lakes, countless attractive villages and hamlets, and its abundance of wildlife, the Lake District’s unsurpassed landscape has inspired the artistic works of many including Wordsworth, Wainwright and Beatrix Potter. William Wordsworth declared that the Lake District was ‘the loveliest spot that man has ever known’ and John Constable described the Lakes as ‘the finest scenery that ever was’.
Come and stay in one of our exclusive cottages for couples, with easy access to the stunning and more peaceful Western Lake District. Ellen Hall is within easy reach of Buttermere, Crummock Water, Loweswater and Ennerdale and all these lakes provide easy, beautiful walks along their shores. If your feeling that bit more adventurous and want to tick off some North and Western Wainwrights, then Skiddaw, Grasmoor, High Stile, Haystacks and Great Gable are among the finest days walking nearby.
Our Holiday cottages cater for all tastes and budgets. You will find luxury, great value and a truly memorable break at Cottages Made For Two. Book a romantic break for two online today!
