“A "Must Stay" B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This is a lovely B&B, well located, and cozy as can be. The hosts were extremely helpful, especially as we were 5 females traveling throughout the UK for the first time. The rooms were absolutely lovely, comfortable, and fully equipped. They outdid themselves at breakfast! The table setting was beautiful, the food superb, the staff smiling and happy. A wonderful way to start your day! We loved that we had our options of a full British breakfast or lighter fare of porridge and fresh fruit. Delightful! We will definitely be staying here on our next trip across the pond!

Room Tip: As there were 5 of us traveling together, we booked a triple and a double. Our triple was very room...

Great central B&B where the hosts cannot do enough to make sure that your stay is without any hiccups. Great comfortable rooms with a great breakfast with lots of options to choose from. Hosts have a great knowledge of the surrounding areas also.

The location is central to Windermere, though you don't feel as though you're in the middle of the town as the location is peaceful. The room was lovely, cosy, comfortable and clean and the breakfast is the nicest we've had anywhere. The owners are lovely, make you feel very welcome and go out of their way to make your stay as nice as possible. We would highly recommend Ellerdene and will be back to Windermere (and Ellerdene) for another stay.

A really nice B&B. The rooms are clean, bright and tastefully decorated and the hosts, Rick and Phil are friendly and helpful. I had a very comfortable night's sleep, an excellent breakfast, and was sent on my way with a full flask of coffee. The only slight hiccup I could see was that the separate shower and toilet for the single room could well be a bit cramped for someone taller than me, but I had no problem. Overall I'd rate this as one of the best B&Bs I've stayed in.

We spent 3 nights here and had a very enjoyable time made better by the hospitality offered by Rick and Phil. Rooms very good, fridge supplied which is a nice extra. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious with endless supply of tea or coffee. Recommendations given on eating places were accepted and thoroughly enjoyable. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Dog friendly too.

Based on my experience, good value and great for a short stay in a nice location very close to Windermere shops and restaurants. Although the single room is fairly small, it isn't 'too' small and was very clean and nicely furnished. The small private bathroom for the single room is right next to the room and was also very clean. The owners were helpful and friendly in an unintrusive way and breakfast was plentiful with various hot and cold options.

If, like me, you're not a dog-owner, please don't let this put you off as a number of dogs were staying at the same time as me but the only reason I know this was I met them on my way in or out - they were extremely well-behaved and unobtrusive otherwise.
