    “Myself, my daughter and two grandchildren came to Ellerbeck Bridge for a short weekend and what a joy the cottage is.”

    Spacious, clean and cozy. An ideal base for exploring the Lakes and yet if you didn’t fancy going anywhere there are plenty of things to do. A wide variety of board games available to make fun with, jigsaws etc. We are seriously considering coming back maybe next summer sometime. Thank you very much.

The property

Ellerbeck Bridge is a charming semi-detached cottage nestled in the Lakeland village of Underbarrow, a few miles from the market town of Kendal and on the edge of The Lyth Valley. The property has undergone extensive renovation, priding itself on being a contemporary base for friends, families or a group of travellers looking for an escape to the Lake District. Be greeted by the high-quality features of the property and its added charms such as the electric woodburning-effect stove which can be found in the snug upon entering the property. This room can be used as a quiet space for catching up on the day's events, or indulging in a good book. Walk through to an open-plan living room and dining area, spacious enough for the whole family to gather in front of the log-burner to unwind. Find an amply-equipped kitchen with added extras such as a dishwasher and washer/dryer for your benefit, whilst a utility room is ideal for storing outdoor gear. The character continues on the first floor with four well-presented bedrooms, set up as two king-sizes, a twin and bunk room, each fitted with a range of furniture for storing your personal belongings. The master bedroom has its own en-suite shower room, whilst the remaining bedrooms share the family bathroom with the choice of an elegant bath and shower cubicle to prepare for your day. During the summer months, you can spend the afternoon out in the garden and delight in the stunning country views surrounding with a refreshing beverage, whilst your pets run and play. Choose to enjoy a morning stroll through the nearby woodland area, home to an abundance of wildlife including red squirrels, deer and badgers. Nestled on the south-east corner of the Lake District National Park, this property has access to plenty of country trails such as Scout Scar and Whitbarrow Scar. If you don't fancy cooking one evening, there are three pubs which come highly recommended, The Black Labrador a short walk away or the nearby Punch Bowl at Crosthwaite and the Mason Arms at Strawberry Bank. The historic market town of Kendal is a short drive away and is ideal for those seeking a spot of history and culture, with the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, historic ruins of Kendal Castle and Museum of Lakeland Life and Industry available for viewing. Further afield is the famous Lake Windermere, ideal for watersports such as sailing, fishing and kayaking in particular. Ellerbeck Bridge is the perfect base for wildlife lovers, walkers and for those who enjoy the secluded countryside.

About the location


Windermere 8 miles.

A historic market town with a fine reputation for shopping, Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent and is known as the Southern Gateway to the Lakes. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Visit The Abbot Hall Art Gallery, its regular collection holding portraits by Kendal born George Romney and works by Turner and Ruskin, with other exhibitions through its links with the Tate. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay. Kendal itself is ideally placed for exploring South Lakeland, the Yorkshire Dales and beyond. With other attractions such as Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life, the fascinating Quaker Tapestry, Lake Windermere and the wider National Park within easy reach, Kendal provides a superb base for a relaxing break.
