Ellel sits just a few miles south of the City of Lancaster itself, and nearby Galgate traces much of its heritage back to a vibrant silk industry. Several of its historic mills and characterful buildings still stand to this day as a testament to the areas past, and the waterways that were widely-used during this period are now picturesque recreational spots.
Nearby Galgate Marina is one particularly tranquil destination, acting as a gateway to the winding canal that stretches for 41 miles between Preston and Kendal. The Marina itself is the perfect spot to watch narrowboats drift by, or for a relaxing stroll or bike ride along the towpath. Lancaster Canal Boats also offer relaxing cruises to the nearby Lune Aqueduct, allowing you to take in the stunning views and local wildlife along the way.
The local area has amenities right on your doorstep, with artisan cafes, shops, friendly country pubs and more all within a short stroll, drive or bus ride. These new homes are also ideally-placed for trips out to other local villages and hamlets. The old market village of Garstang makes for a perfect day trip, while the 12th century country house at Thurnham Hall oers superb leisure facilities on its magnificent estate. Conder Greens canalside inns boast exquisite dining options in the heart of the local countryside. Ellel sits close to the Forest of Bowland. Listed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it has a year-round calendar of outdoor events to go with its walking trails and cycle routes. With Lancaster city centre only 4 miles away with its excellent range of shops, pubs and restaurants and with the seaside town Morecambe 8 miles away as well as easy access to the M6 Chapelside has much to offer.
