“We couldn't have been made more welcome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

A large group of friends stayed at Elder Grove for a get together and some birthday celebrations and we were looked after brilliantly! Paul and Vicky are the perfect hosts and could have been more accommodating, ensuring that we had a really great time. Rooms are lovely, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is excellent. This place is an excellent choice.

Lovely B&B, very welcoming hosts and a very comfortable room with lovely four poster bed and sofa. Lots of lovely little touches which really make all the difference - also a great bar! Ambleside is on your doorstep, we will definitely return. Thank you very much.

Four of us stayed at the Elder Grove from the 25-27 January 2013. Fantastic accommodation, rooms clean, comfortable with great four poster beds in both rooms. Nice little touches in the room such as a hot water bottle. Breakfast was beautiful such a choice where everybody was catered for. Off road parking space. If returning to the lakes in the future I would definitely return to Elder Grove.

We arrived on Saturday 5th January 2013, and had a warm welcome from Paul, who showed us our room. Breakfast the next morning was fantastic, a full Cumbrian breakfast was my choice, but there are plenty of other choices, ranging from cereals to fresh fruit to poached eggs, and the list goes on. Oh and not to mention Paul's own home made Marmalade, which was delicious. After a long hike up a wet mountain that day, it was very handy that Paul and Vicky had a drying room for our wet clothes and boots, which we collected the next morning, all nicely dried out for us. In the evenings we used the Bar at Elder Grove, and Paul and Vicky were great hosts with some good conversations. Our room was spacious and warm, with an en suit bathroom with shower, and attention to detail was spot on, could not have asked for more. We found our stay at Elder Grove was very, very good and will return again and stay here with no hesitation. Our stay was for four nights, which I wished could have been longer. Fantastic B&B.

Room Tip: Higher level rooms, have better views.

We had a 2 night stay in December 2012 and were extremely impressed with everything about Elder Grove. Room was very comfortable and beautifully maintained, Paul and Vicky were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic breakfasts.
We would return at the drop of a hat
