Self-Catering Holiday Cottage - Sleeps up to 6


Ellwood, Bridekirk, Cumbria , CA13 0PE, UK


The Area

Ellwood is situated on the outskirts of the prosperous, historic hamlet of Bridekirk - an undiscoverd quiet backwater of outstanding beauty, just two miles north of Cockermouth. Set within 20 acres of pasture land, with open views from all rooms, the property is approached over a long driveway leading in to a walled, cobbled courtyard with private parking and a triple bay garage (housing full size table tennis table).


The Cottage

Ellwood is an original stone barn dating back to the 1830's, newly converted and refurbished to exacting standards by the present owner (who was born in the adjacent original farmhouse), to use as his eventual retirement home. In the meantime we are proud to share what must be one of the most luxurious properties one could wish to find. The centrally heated and double glazed accomodation is imaginitively designed over 5 split level floors, retaining many original features including exposed stone walls and ceiling beams, reclaimed pitch pine and Lakeland slate flooring, and is lavishly equipped for your every need. We promise that even the most discerning client will be overwhelmed by the sheer luxury and attention to detail that must be experienced to be fully appreciated.

Due to the high standard of furnishings and fabrics, together with the mix of antique furniture we regret that the property is not suitable for young children or pets.



£400 - £1200 per week
depending on the season.

The cottage will be available from April 2002, after which it will be available all year round. Please contact us to see if your preferred week is available.
