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.

Just arrived back home today after a 3 night stay at Elim House. From the moment Judith opened the front door, we were made to feel very welcome. Check in is from 2pm and even though we arrived a little early, our room was ready and waiting for us. We stayed in room 6 which was a standard double en... More

El baño interior y oscurísimo con una luz oscuro. La mujer tendía mala educación. Nos rechazó con una cara con mierda cuando le pedimos guardar dos pequeñas maletas allí en el momento Check-out. Al final tenemos que pagar 10 GBP más para guardarlas en otro sitio. La mujer que trabaja allí es muy desagradable. The old lady who work there... More

Beautiful gardens, clean place, excellent location, private car park. Well priced, a bit old fashioned but don't let that put you off. Would go again, owner very pleasant, breakfast very reasonable. Not licensed but with plenty of bars near by it doesn't need to be

If you want chique, sanitised, minimalistic stark modernism, this is not for you. What the wonderful caring owner, Judith, provides is a homely cosy comfy environment in a spotlessly clean period property. Our room was ensuite with tea/coffee/chocolate making facilities along with squash and a selection of biscuits. We had a wall mounted tv and two very comfortable armchairs, along... More

An absolutely wonderful little bed and breakfast. My partner and I booked in here for a couple of nights, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The place itself is a gorgeous house built from slate with a beautiful front garden, but the one thing that really sold it to me is the location; the shore of lake windermere is only a... More

Returned yesterday after 3 nights at Elim House. We go to the lake district often but this was our first stay here. It was absolutely lovely, we had nice room, very clean and bright. The owner Judith was very nice, she went out of her way to supply me with my porridge just how I like it and nothing seemed... More

Perfect from start to Finnish. Room large, airy and very clean. A relaxed environment, friendly host and excellent location. Breakfast was lovely and price of room very reasonable. Have been visiting brownness for 20 years and have at last found the perfect B and B.
