Ellas Crag Guest House

Ellas Crag is a four star (silver award) guesthouse located in a majestic setting at the foot of Causy Pike in the lake-district. The guesthouse overlooks Skiddaw to the North and Catbells to the East which are some of the best known mountains in the Lake District. Ellas Crag is an ideal starting point for walking and sightseeing and these breath taking views are also the ideal setting for another great installation by Express Bi Folding Doors.

A recent renovation of the property has seen the front elevation transformed by the installation of our XP10 folding doors, tilt and turn windows, and casement windows, the products have been powder coated to anthracite grey (RAL 7016) and also boast integral Uniblinds between the double glazing.

These full height tilt and turn windows flood this new extension with light whilst allowing guests to look out over the mountains, likewise the XP10 folding doors with their nominal sightline of just 132m allow uninterrupted view over one of the most popular and beautiful tourist locations in the UK.

Although the extension looks stunning with the windows and doors closed the real benefits are seen when the doors and windows are completely opened up creating a secluded open gateway right into the heart of the lake-district.

The aluminium casement windows tilt and turn windows, and XP10 folding doors have all been designed to perfectly complement one another and their contemporary aesthetic is a great contrast to this lovely traditional stone guest house, which has been superbly finished off internally and externally by the owners.

Being set in such a great location it is no surprise that Ellas Crag welcomes its visitors back year after year, and we are delighted that these returning visitors will now have the added benefit of being able to look at and enjoy our products first hand. For more information on the guesthouse itself or to book your stay in the Lake District please visit www.ellascrag.co.uk.

Unfortunately Express cannot guarantee views like this on all installations, but we can guarantee a transformation of your home that will blur the divisions between the inside and outside, changing your living space and lifestyle and allowing you to enjoy the bright life.
