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!

This hotel is beautifully kept. Vicki and Paul are the perfect hosts. Alot of the products used for breakfast are locally sourced and Paul makes his own jams, marmalades and bread. Any kind of diet is catered for.The rooms are beautifully kept. We never stay anywhere else in Ambleside.

Our room was very spacious (4 poster and very comfortable) There were plenty of toiletries and tea/coffee. Even though we were at the front of the house and overlooking... More

Lovely B & B with cosy clean rooms and baths. Rooms are so well equipped there's even a folder with information on local attractions and how to get there. The breakfast was sumptious, with home made bread and jam courtesy of the owners, Paul and Vicky. Overall a more than awesome experience in the Lake District capped by our stay... More

Elder Grove looks nice upon arrival and is in a good location to go in to Ambleside or to the lake with only a few minutes walk to either. The room was big enough for a short 2 night stay and was very clean with towels changed for us the second day. The selection for breakfast is excellent with cereals,... More

Just arrived home after a fantastic weeks stay here. Couldn't have asked for a better stay everything was 100% perfect. Vicky and Paul couldn't have done more for us. Breakfast is amazing, rooms are clean and spacious, when we went out for walks and things they had maps to help you with directions. Everything is perfect. See you again soon... More

We are now into our third day staying at Elder Grove and are very impressed. Paul and Vicky are excellent hosts and very keen to make their guests welcome and feel at home. The breakfasts are extensive and offer quality food which is truly homemade - the marmalade and tomato ketchup are superb. This is a very professionally run business... More
