Located in the upscale village of Elterwater, The Eltermere Inn gives the impression that it is known to few and offers rooms to even fewer - my advice is book early! My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night short break at the Eltermere Inn. We first stayed at the Eltermere over 5 years ago to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, we returned this time to celebrate the impending arrival of our first child. The hotel has since changed ownership and the very gracious new owners are sympathetically renovating this beautiful former country home. The newly refurbished dining rooms, lounges and bar exude boutique style luxury and although our room (number 4) was on the upstairs level which has yet to be renovated, the room is full of charm and the breathtaking view over the front of the property leading down to the lake is truly worth the sacrifice of having a newly refurbished bedroom as found on the lower level. We stayed on the dinner, bed and breakfast rate. The dinners offered a mouthwatering selection of local produce including lamb, beef, duck and vegetarian options. The desserts were to die for, the service and attention to detail was nothing short of a fine dining experience with a stunning view to boot! The breakfast options were equally delicious although the availability of condiments and perhaps some more continental dishes such as cheese, meats and pastries would have made it a perfect experience. That is not to say that the kitchen did not provide these (I asked for some sliced cheese) upon request. The Eltermere Inn mixed classic English antiquity with mod-con luxury - they've got the balance right and we look forward to returning to mark yet another special occassion in our lives! Well worth the drive from London.
