We came for a 3 night break to this beautiful place. The bed was large and really comfortable but the highlight was the breakfast. The breakfast room incredibly attractive with drystone walls and lovely décor. Various options and all the ones we had were executed to the highest of standards and truly delicious. All meat is sourced by the butcher... More

We spent five nights at Elder Grove last week, staying in one of the four-poster rooms at the front of the house. We had enjoyed a visit last year and were not disappointed. Beautiful big room with every comfort, including a very user-friendly settee. Lovely skin-care products thoughtfully provided in the bathroom, and plenty of tea or coffee supplies. Delicious...

I was responsible for booking over 70 rooms in Ambleside as we were filming in the area, and I stayed at Elder Grove with some of my colleagues. It was a total breath of fresh air compared to the corporate monstrosities we usually stay in - absolutely charming. Nothing was too much trouble, the rooms were spacious (the single is... More

Paul and Vicky have set this B&B up to make you feel as if this is your home away from home. Very helpful friendly and the breakfast is something you are very much looking forward to every morning. Paul makes all the marmalades and jams and to top there flavors off is his home made bread.

Had a few days in Ambleside for some much needed time out. Elder Grove was a great choice. Fabulous breakfasts, handy living room areas and a lovely room, with a great view of the fells. The hosts are really lovely and did everything they needed to, to make me feel welcome. The parking is handy and the proximity to the... More

Off road parking available which is very important. Hosts are very kind and helpful. Breakfasts are really good! Breakfast stack my favorite as is the homemade rasberry vanilla jam.

It's hard to overstate how good this place is. The location in the centre of Ambleside with parking means you can leave the car in the Elder Grove car park. The owners have thought of everything from the honesty bar serving cold drinks and tray bakes round the clock to umbrellas to borrow to a wide selection of books and... More

The Elder Grove is a perfect place for a few days walking and visiting the local area. Very accessible and central to Ambleside. Countless walks possible from the hotel. Very clean and homely. Tea / coffee in the room. There is constant hot water to warm you up after a day walking in the rain. The beds are very comfortable... More
