One-Off Feature

Elm How is a lovely spacious old farmhouse in the Grisedale Valley above Patterdale in the Lake District. It lies within Braesteads Farm, a traditional hill farm, and you can start your walks from the door. With its circular stone staircase and log burning stove, the house provides a delightful cosy base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District.

General Info

Elm How sleeps up to 8 people, in 4 bedrooms. Its spacious living areas make it perfect for families and groups who want to get off the beaten track and enjoy some peace and tranquillity in restorative surroundings. Numerous walks wind away directly from the front door and this is just the place to appreciate the simple pleasures in life - fresh air, village pubs, strolls through the countryside and reading in front of the fire.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

Elm How is close to Patterdale and Ullswater. There are paths from the door giving access onto the higher fells - Helvellyn and Fairfield. From Glenridding there are steamer trips, and rowing boats to hire.  Windermere and Bowness offer a good selection of supermarkets, shops, restaurants, and high quality local attractions.  Windermere is a good base from which to explore the Lake District, and you will find it easy to access boating and walking activities. There are plenty of footpaths in and around Windermere, connecting with a wide network of walks. Boat trips connect with walks on the West side of the Lake.  Venues/attractions within, or very close to, Bowness and Windermere include The World of Beatrix Potter, Blackwell, The Royalty Cinema and Windermere Lake Cruises, amongst others.
