6 of us spent 2 nights at the beginning of July to celebrate hubbies 65th. From the minute we checked in Vicky & Paul couldn't do enough to make us welcome. 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

I have just returned from staying at Elder Grove, which I found by chance on the internet. It really is a fantastic place to stay and as others have said, Paul and Vicky have thought of everything! I stayed in a single room and it was all very clean and tastefully done. The bed was very comfortable and I had... More

We made our second visit to Elder Grove in May and stayed for 4 nights. We chose Elder Grove again as we knew we wouldn't be disappointed by the quality, comfort and attention to detail. We weren't let down. Elder Grove is set in a great location just south of the centre of Ambleside, which is an easy stroll away.... More

We stayed for one night this time, the room was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The owners couldn't be more helpful! The breakfast choices were to a hotel standard and the choices from the buffet perfect. We would aim to stay there again if we found ourselves in Ambleside,

This is a perfect place to stay in the lakes, perfect location, excellent rooms and perfect hosts. There are so many little personal touches that make this far more than a bnb. From the umbrellas by the door to the games for the kids in the lounge and bar to the home baked bread, home made jams and even home... More
