The property

Resting on the outskirts of Cleator in Cumbria and set in the wonderful Ehen Hall is The Residence. This well-appointed apartment is set over three floors and has a charming sense of character woven throughout thanks to feature fireplaces and exposed beams; it also affords access to the beautiful grounds of Ehen Hall and welcomes four guests and their canine companion. Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home, step into the fully-equipped kitchen/diner and help the group’s designated chef rustle up a tasty meal. Gather around the table and tuck in before stepping outside to soak up the last of the sun. On colder nights snuggle up with your loved ones in the sitting room and settle in for a film night with tasty treats. When the evening draws to a close, head upstairs for some much-needed rest; the first floor houses a large bedroom with a super-king-size bed and adjacent shower room. The second floor hosts another spacious bedroom with exposed beams and a king-size bed. Outside, Ehen Hall is set in seven acres of secluded, private grounds, large lawns surrounded by mature trees, so plenty of space to enjoy, relax, exercise your dog, or just have a wander about in the fresh air. Paces away from the entrance gate is Longlands Lake. A complete circuit is less than a mile, or just take a seat on one of the many benches and enjoy the resident swans and ducks cavorting on the water. In the village of Cleator, St. Leonards Church dates to Henry 1, there is also a small village shop for your essentials, and within walking distance, you’ll find a country hotel with a dog-friendly bar. A short drive away takes you to Egremont with lots of take away food options, breakfast/lunch time cafés, local craft, and some budget supermarkets. By car, you can also reach the beach at St. Bees. Lots of history going back to Norman times, good pubs, beach café with great ice cream, and a moderate walk up the cliff to St. Bees head affords great views over the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man and the hills of southern Scotland. A scenic short drive in the other direction is all you need to get to Ennerdale Water; a serene and quiet lake with options ranging from a relaxing sit down absorbing the beautiful scenery to gentle forest walks/cycling, to scaling challenging peaks. Afterwards, two great pubs and a contemporary community run café reward your efforts. Whitehaven, our nearest “large” town is also nearby, where you’ll find a lovely harbour, great Georgian architecture, enormous history including maritime, railway, mining and strong links to empire sensitively acknowledged in our museums and attractions. Beyond this, in approximately 30 minutes, the Wasdale valley boasts England’s highest mountain, deepest lake and smallest church; again, the walks range from pleasant, gentle strolls to very challenging. There is so much more to say, but we hope something here has inspired you to visit west Cumbria and The Residence.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
