We had a smallish room which was cosy and warm. Ensuite small but serviceable and there were nice shampoos to use. Nice big fluffy towels. Appreciated our bag being taken up to our room. We only had light breakfast but the porridge was the best. Cost more than similar B&B's on our coast to coast path. Lovely people run this... More

Just had four nights B&B at Elm House. Ann and Mark were terrific. On this occasion as a singe traveller I had a small double bed room that was not wanting for anything. It was very clean and the breakfasts were first class. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would have no hesitation in recommending Elm House.

We decided to go away for a couple of nights one afternoon and luckily found this B & B had a vacancy for two nights. We found it easily and were welcomed into the house and shown our room. It was a spacious double room with a modern well-appointed shower room and toilet en-suite. The room was well furnished and... More

Just got back from our amazing weekend in the Lake District which was made all the better thanks to our stay here. Mark and Anne were lovely and pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. Our room was really spacious, well decorated and immaculately clean. The small touches ie mints on pillows, water in fridge and especially our wine glasses... More

Only stayed one night here in a family room. Very surprised when the family room was actually 2 separate bedrooms with the en suite in between them which was absolutely perfect. Each room had beautiful decor and everything was immaculate. TV and well stocked hospitality tray in both rooms and even a small fridge with a couple of bottles of... More

Had a lovely weekend visiting Ullswater and stayed at Elm House. We managed to book at Elm House last minute and we were impressed with our stay. The room was nicely decorated, modern and clean. There were some nice little touches such as the badger (which we named Bodger) to be put outside the door if you didn't want your... More

Elm House offers high quality rooms for B&B prices, the owners are friendly, knowledgeable and the breakfast range is good, served in view of the garden bird feeders. It's on the main road, as are the other places to stay, so some traffic noise in our room.

Beautifully furnished room with a comfortable queen size bed. Good bathroom with lots of hot water. Lovely location right in the village. Terrific breakfast with lots of choice and lovely hosts. We only had one night here and it really wasn't enough.

We arrived to a warm friendly welcome and were shown to our room which was luxurious. The facilities were modern, clean and very comfortable with attention to detail in the decor and en-suite bathroom. Parking off road area was beside the B&B. The situation of Elm house was fantastic over looking the fields on the edge of the village, but... More
