Great location. Facilities were very good. Paul's breakfast was of a very high standard (he trained as a chef) as was Vicky's service. They were both very accommodating. There is a bar in the basement that Paul is happy to open uopn request.

We stayed for two nights (Sunday & Monday) after spending the weekend at a friend's wedding nearby. SETTING Perfectly situated off the main road in central Ambleside. Parking available (I think there were six spaces). Walkable distance to the town and many walks with recommendations in the folder in the room or directions available in the bar/lounge. ROOMS Simple but... More

My new husband and I stayed at Stones Throw for a week in April and had the perfect stay. Our hosts were extremely accommodating, understanding that we would be arriving on Sunday evening, rather than Saturday, after our wedding and were able to meet us at whatever time we arrived off our train. They also went to great efforts before... More

Just returned from a 4 day break in the self catering retreat Stones Throw owned by Elder Grove. Only a couple of minutes walk into Ambleside, it was the perfect place for a relaxing break away before the madness of Christmas. The little extra touches made it all the more special-from the loaf of homemade bread and jar of marmalade... More

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Grasmere. We arrived late at the landlord was extremely helpful in telling us where to go for some food and what to do the next day if we were to go for a walk. The rooms were beautiful, the overall décor of the B&B was perhaps a bit too much, but still very... More

All the little details that make a trip away extra special have been thought about at Elder Grove. From the extensive welcome pack to the quality of breakfast, local walk guides that have been written by the owners, tray bakes and honest box in the hallway (which has led me to make my own version of Mars Bar Crispy Cake!)...

For the second year my wife and I travelled to the lakes for a few days break. We booked the Elder Grove on line and ordered a room with King Size bed. Only one available - was on top floor but took it anyway. We were not disappointed. The room was excellent, beautifully clean, with full compliment of tea, coffee... More

We had a 3 night stay, rooms were immaculate, free wi-fi to keep the teenagers happy, and we consistently had the best breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. I am coeliac and they catered for me so well with gluten free products which isn't that common - so thanks so much for that!
