This is an absolutely fantastic B&B situated on the main road in Ambleside. The building itself is stunning and the rooms spacious with a very comfortable bed. We stayed in the delux room with the Victorian 4 post tester bed which was beautiful. The thing that made it extra special is the little things the hosts do to make your... More

My partner and I were recommended to come to this B&B and we did enjoy our stay here. Our four poster bed was very comfortable and all the amenities top notch. Breakfast was exceptional, from fresh fruit through homemade muesli and bread to a good choice of cooked options. The finale was a large choice of homemade jams and marmalades.

We stayed here 2 nights 13/14 July after booking it "on the road" the day before. We are so glad we chose this place in Ambleside rather than another option in Windemere. Vicky & Paul were delightful and Ambleside was a perfect base to discover the Lakes District. Breakfast was a highlight (thank you Paul) and the bedrooms were spacious,... More

Elder Grove offered everything we were looking for during a weekend stay. It was spotlessly clean, well appointed, efficiently run and offered fabulous breakfasts with plenty of choice. What we liked: From book in through to departure the service was excellent. Our hosts offered to carry our luggage up the stairs, showed us where everything was and were helpful and... More

Elder Grove is more than just a B&B - it is as good as any hotel and deserves five stars if it was possible. It is ideally situated for getting around Ambleside. The whole place is spotlessly clean, with a lovely breakfast room serving top drawer food - the choice was excellent, as were Paul's homemade jams. Our bedroom was... More

Stayed at Elder Grove last September for my birthday with my fiancé! Absolutely loved it! Bedroom decorated beautifully, shower nice and powerful, bedroom and bathroom very clean and tidy, large windows and gorgeous views. Breakfast was one of the best I have had, lots of choices of food and drink! Nice and close to shops and restaurants. Not too far... More

Having just returned home this afternoon from a 3 night break staying at the Elder Grove in Ambleside, we have nothing but praise for the accommodation, the breakfasts and the hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for Paul and Vicky. The room was spotless, of a good size, comfortable bed, lovely furnishings and a spectacular view of Loughrigg to wake... More

The price was not cheap but everything else was brilliant. Good service and great breakfast! Best breakfast in the lake district. Room condition and bed was good. The location was also excellent. It might be a little bit noisy because it is located just next to the main road!!
