Just back from a lovely stay at this B & B. Room 5 was really nice and the little extras made it even better. Comfy bed, great towels, great shower. Breakfast was very good and nothing was too much trouble. Would have no hesitation in recommending Elm House. Mark was a lovely host.

Stayed here for one night last week, and we loved it. Hosts were really friendly and welcoming. We stayed in room 5 that had a lovely view out of one window over a field with lambs jumping around in it. The B&B is next to a road however this did not in the slightest disturb our stay, it is more... More

The guest house is in a good spot. It has its own parking and within short walking distance of the three village centre pubs. The bedroom and shower are a good size and decorated in a modern boutique(esq) style. Nice touches in the guest area are an honesty box and a wide range of dvds. Overall reasonable value for money.

Booked late but managed to get the king room (room 4) for two nights. This is a big room with a comfortable king bed, a sitting area and a large en-suite bathroom. Room was nice and clean. A big bonus for us was free wifi - some international hotels take note! There was no noticeable noise or traffic at night.... More

Elm House provides a very good base to explore Ullswater and offers what a good B&B should. Our room was clean, comfortable and warm although quite small and no view. Clean towels and heated towel rack were also very nice. The highlight was the breakfast which was excellent! During our stay we tried almost everything on the menu and everything... More
