Having frequented the Ellerthwaite Lodge Hotel prior to the current owners, we were looking forward to staying with our three year old. The changes that the current owners have made are excellent. The carpark is a great advantage over other accommodation and the hotel is in an ideal location for both Bowness and Windermere. We stayed in room 14 with... More
