Elm How is a traditional Lakeland farmhouse, ideally located close to Helvellyn, Catstycam and St Sunday Crag. Situated near the villages of Patterdale and Glenridding on Ullswater, Elm How is a spacious, 4 star dog friendly holiday cottage sleeping 8.
There is parking for two cars next to a small beck which runs close to the accommodation. Original features give clues to Elm How's history. It has a large dining kitchen, original stone surround with wood burning stove in a spacious sitting room and an additional snug. A welcome basket of logs is provided with free additional wood available in the adjacent log store. The water source heat pump keeps the property cosy and warm with an ample supply of hot water. The kitchen is well equipped with electric range cooker, double fridge and freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The utility room which leads from the hallway has a sink unit and washer/dryer. Dog bowls are provided. The sitting room has a range of seating with a Bluetooth entertainment system and CD player. There is no TV signal in this remote location, but the TV has an HDMI port to accommodate external media. Mobile signal is also poor but the property has good internet connection and wifi calling can be accessed on a smart phone in the sitting room and snug. Cots and highchairs are available on request.
A feature stone spiral staircase leads to the first floor where you will find four comfortable bedrooms - two double and two twin beds - all of which are very well appointed. There is an adjoining ensuite shower room to one of the double bedrooms and a separate family bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle, basin and separate WC.
Linen and towels are provided. Cots and highchairs available on request.
Please be aware that Elm How is located on a working farm and we require all dogs to be under close control. One well-behaved dog is welcome at Elm How.
Access to Elm How is by a single rough track. It is an unpaved gated road, about 1.5 miles from Patterdale.
Elm How is situated in the Grisedale valley on the Coast-to-Coast path from Patterdale - it can easily be described as the perfect base for a Lakeland walking holiday!
