Just had our second stay here, and it was just as lovely as the first time. The location is great, so close to the hub of bowness, but as soon as you step off the main road its bird song you hear, rather than the traffic. Room was clean and comfortable and Judith was welcoming and flexible with my dietary... More

My wife & I enjoyed our Wedding Anniversary in Bowness on Sunday. This was complimented by a lovely base to stay. Elim House was perfectly situated for a leisurely stroll to the village & all its eating & drinking. There is private parking to the rear, which is handy. The 4 poster bed was very comfortable, as was the room.... More

Stayed at Elim House for two nights for my birthday weekend, and what a lovely time spent here! The owner (sorry I can't remember your name) was very friendly and helpful, our room (5) was cosy and clean and the location is excellent- only a 2 minute walk into the town and a bit further to the lakeside. Thank you... More

A quiet guest house in a good location, average place with average services. Proprietor is friendly enough and good host. Room is clean and suits a short stay. Breakfast ok too however more choice would be nice as I feel this is normal to offer fruit and yoghurts etc.

Thank you for your review but I am curious about the breakfast choice comment. For example we offer full English breakfast, full vegetarian breakfast, both with choice of egg, continental (with croissant, fruit and yoghurt???), kippers with scrambled egg, and bacon/egg/sausage sandwich. In my personal opinion I think for a B & B that is sufficient and much more than... More

Good bits: > beautiful front garden, really lovely with lots of birds and flowers > clean, tidy and well presented > really lovely breakfast waiter - what a happy guy! Lovely staff! Not-so-good bits: > the owner seemed disenchanted with the place (complaining to us), so not a very warm welcome > we had a problem with the shower, and... More

Had a fantastic time away for my boyfriends birthday. We didn't know the area but when we asked the lady gave us loads of information and was extremely helpful. There is parking to the back of the b&b. I have seen reviews about being told to be quiet? We had our tv on both nights till the early hours and... More

We had a lovely stay here. We were made to feel very welcome, the room was clean and comfortable and we felt it was very good value for money. I've got to put 200 characters but I think I've said it all. .All in all recommended!

Initially we were skeptical after reading some reviews on this site, ignore the negative ones as we had an excellent time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Me and my boyfriend arrived in the evening after communicating with Judith (the owner) throughout the day. She welcomed us and showed us to our room which was lovely! She gave us a quick... More

A fabulous little B & B right on the doorstep of Lake Windermere, with off street parking. Having stayed in Bowness before we knew the B & B so had no hesitation in booking it. The owner was very friendly and the waiter at breakfast attended our every need. We stayed 2 nights, Saturday and Sunday as it was our... More

This is a fab place to stay, Judith is a great host, lovely breakfast & a very homely place. We have visited here many times and stayed in most of the rooms, would recommend any of them especially the super king side bed in the annexe.
