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

We came to Windermere from London and the road was very bad that day so we called up the hotel saying we will be late, however the lady over the phone insist that check in closes at 9 and wouldn't give any room for negotiation. She became grumpy in the end starting to scream at us. My husband drove at... 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.

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

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
