Self-catering in Cumbria
Love Cumbria and the Lake Distict? Return year after year or never been before? At Cottages Made For Two you’re in a perfect spot to explore the dramatic scenery of the National Park, visit lovely English market towns like Keswick and Cockermouth and explore the Solway Coast or even perhaps Hadrians Wall. All this from the cosy “home from home” that is your cottage made exclusively with couples in mind.
No need to worry about when to be up for breakfast or getting back in time for tea, its your time and your space and you can rest assured that this is exactly what we want for your special stay. We pride ourselves on the personal touch too and you can also be confident that someone is on hand to help you with your stay. We love to give ideas on what to do and see, but we also understand that you may just want time to relax, unwind and feel the peace and tranquility that surrounds the cottages. Above all, we want you to enjoy your stay so much, that you will want to return…….many of our guests do; its always an honour to welcome you again.
All of our Lake District Holiday Cottages, here at Ellen Hall, have a fully equipped kitchen to cater for all your needs, this includes an oven and hob, a microwave, fridge with ice box and cooking utensils and equipment.
They all have a digital television with a DVD player so don’t forget the odd DVD or two for the rainy days and long evenings in. Wi-Fi is free too, but for those of you that want to leave all that behind, we display the mountain weather forecast supplied by mwis.org.uk
There is a shared laundry which runs on an ”honesty” basis which has both washing machine and tumble dryers.
There are many local places to get groceries, the village of Aspatria has the closest convenience stores, which include a co-op that is always open late, even if you are arriving on a Sunday. Cockermouth has a Sainsburys, an Aldi, Boots and many local butchers and grocery shops. We spent many years traveling to the lakes before we moved here and know that sometimes the traffic can be very slow, so if you want us to pop out and get some provisions for you for when you arrive just let us know and we will do our best to get what you want.
We do not have a reception area but we hold an open door policy so if you have any enquiries just pop up to the farm house and we will do our utmost to assist you. If you chose to holiday with us then we will let you know how you can obtain the key to your property.
