Ellen Hall was the seat of the Dykes family as far back as the reign of Edward VI. The present house was converted from an even older building by Leonard Dykes, one time Sheriff of Cumberland, when he married Grace Salkeld in 1660, as his wedding gift. This romantic story has inspired the names of our two barn cottages, Dykes and Salkeld. Open to the beamed rafters, the lounge areas is furnished with cosy chairs & settee, just right for snuggling around the log burning stove, TV,  and stereo. (There is an £10 charge for wood & coal which should  last two nights, if you choose to use it.). The mahogany kitchen is fully equipped for preparing romantic candle-lit dinners around a pine table . The galleried bedroom areas has a four-poster bed and mahogany furniture plus a second TV. The bathroom is fully fitted with bath and shower. The bath converts to a steam cubicle for two, for intimate relaxation.
