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

Friendly and warm welcome from Paul and Vicki, comfortable and clean rooms, with well thought out touches, Eco-friendly soaps, and moisturisers, tray for dirty walking boots, and a first class selection of information, as well as free wifi. The breakfast was legendary ( all locally sourced produce ) and cooked fresh and perfectly. Great location just on the edge of Ambelside, with ample parking. Would highly recommend.

This is our 3rd stay at Elder Grove and it just keeps getting better.Paul or Vicky are always on hand if you need anything ,like taking wet coats and boots off you to put in the drying room to making you a pot of tea in the lounge.The breakfast is simply the best,and all from good suppliers .Room 8 on the top floor was our room for the 2 night stay its a modern fresh warm ,and very clean .The shower is a power shower ,for a perfect relaxing experience.I can not praise Elder Grove enough.Oh and you must try Pauls home made bread,cake,marmalade ,jam and tomato source...he wins prizes for them!!!!
