“Fantastic place!”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

This is a fab guesthouse in an excellent location, walks from the door including Catbells. Excellent, friendly hosts & Truffle the cat. Best feature for us was use of the lounge, having a cuppa in the picture window & watching films from the large library. Never spent any time in a guesthouse lounge before but this one is modern, welcoming & cosy & has excellent all round views of the surrounding mountains. Breakfast was excellent, good choice & well presented. There is also a central serving station outside the bedrooms which works really well to make tea or coffee & biscuits are provided.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Causey Pike room which is a small but adequate double room with en suite & fab...

Everything about this B&B was excellent! The views of the Catbells and Causey Pike were gorgeous. The rooms were spacious with clean, modern bathrooms. Jane and Ed were excellent hosts who were happy to help with our day trips. The breakfasts were delicious especially the freshly-squeezed orange juice and amazing omelettes. There were lots of extras like cake, cookies , tea and milk available. Lots of great hiking nearby. Keswick is very close and there were lots of pubs for dinners. The Pheasant Inn and the fish and chips store both in Keswick were great. The entire area is beautiful and relaxing and we saw lots of sheep. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the Lake District.

This place should be ranked higher on Tripadvisor. The setting is absolutely gorgeous - with stunning views everywhere you look. Ed and Jane are very nice, laidback hosts. They are always available if you have a question, but they are never in your face. Breakfasts were very good and vegetarian friendly which I appreciated! The breakfast room was nice and had views of the Catbells. For our hike on Catbells, Jane made us a bag lunch which was amazing (sandwich with the best, softest, most delicious bread EVER, water, fruit, chips (crisps) and juice). Also, you can walk to the start of the Catbells hike from Ellas Crag - about 15 minute walk through really beautiful country lanes. You will see a lot of sheep!

We stayed in the room with the large bath and shower- can't remember the name - it was indeed spacious and had great views. Plenty of space to lay-out all of our toiletries and the like.

Great location not only for hikes/walks nearby, but also to Keswick. Plenty of good pubs nearby (we ate in nearby Buttermere which had two decent pubs - the Bridge and the Fish).

Ellas Crag is highly recommended. I would stay here again no question.

We were fortunate to have two nights at this splendid B&B. We were warmly welcomed and presented with home made cake to help us settle in. The room was spotless, spacious and the views were amazing. The bathroom was huge, modern and had everything you could possibly wish for. A range of luxury tea, coffee and biscuits were available on the landing between the three guest rooms. We took our tea down to the patio to enjoy the early evening sunshine and watch the walkers scrambling to the top of catbells. My partner used his new telescope for the first time, no light pollution and clear skies meant he saw the moon properly for the first time! Breakfast was perfect, the setting and views were beautiful and we had an abundance of home made preserves, freshly baked home made bread and a full english to set us up for the day. Just a few minutes drive frmo Kewsick with lots of restaurants for the evening, I will definitely return. Thank you to Jane, Ed and Truffle the cat for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful home.

Room Tip: We had the Robinson room which had a huge deep bath, power shower and views to die for.

We stayed at Ella's Crag due to its location at the foot of some of the best mountains in Cumbria.

Our bedroom was Catbells - and true to its name, it had glorious views of that very hill. The bathroom was excellent and very spacious - in fact the whole bedroom was very large and made us feel like we were in a much more expensive establishment. We had morning sun in the bedroom, and due to its dual aspect windows, we still had sun later in the day.

Ed and Jane were very good hosts - very friendly.

We still speak about how lovely this B&B is and we have to return some day!

A beautiful peaceful spot to relax in. Very nice room and bath. Breakfast was delicious, as are their flapjack treats. The location was a little remote and hard to find, and you had to drive someplace for dinner. Great DVD collection and views from the room.

Room Tip: Get the room with the large bathroom.
