“A B&B with that little bit extra”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

My mum, sister and I are just back from a 2 day break at Ellerbrook. We stayed in a family room at the top of the house which was clean, modern and very comfortable and warm.
The breakfast was served in the B&B next door in a beautiful room (this B&B is owned by the same couple). The breakfast menu was large and food was very tasty - the fresh free range eggs were delish!
The real bonus for staying at Ellerbrook is the fact that they have an in house beauty salon (Overbeck Treatment Room - http://www.over-beck.co.uk/).
When planning our trip we were looking for a spa break - Ellerbrook House provided that as well as being a B&B - normally you can only get spa breaks in big impersonal hotels.
We settled for 3 full body massages, 2 facials and a mani/pedi between us and if I was closer I would go every month! The treatment rooms were warm and comfortable and very relaxing.
I think that more marketing on both the B&B site and the Treatment Room site of the ability to have a pamper break would benefit both businesses - I booked the Treatments before I realised they were part of a B&B and then cancelled another B&B in Windermere to be able to combine the treatments with the stay.
Would come back again any time and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a good base for this end of the lakes.

Very clean rooms, the shower was abit small and the sink was in an odd place, in the bedroom not the bathroom. But we spent so little time in the room this did not matter to us, the main thing is it was spotlessly clean. It was only a five minute stroll from Windermere although we found there were not many places to eat in Windermere so we spent our time in bowness which we much prefer and will stay in bowness next time due to it been busier but that is personal preference. The lady who works in the salon is very friendly and was speedy showing us to our room. The breakfast was fine no complaints, everyone was friendly and polite no complaints there. This is a good b&b if you are exploring the area, good value for money

Thank you for your review. We are sad to hear you prefer Bowness to WIndermere, Windermere village has a selection of lovely restaurants ranging from Chinese, Indian, Italian to a wonderful fish restaurant. Hopefully we can tempt you back to Windermere and Ellerbrook House in the future!

We stayed in a family room at the top of the house for two nights in mid July. The room was spacious and very clean with modern decorations and nice furniture. The bathroom was some steps away and small, but clean!
The breakfast was served in the house next door in a beautiful room. The menu was large and food was very tasty. The host was very nice and he recommended things to do while in Windermere.
Ellerbrook House is located in a quiet street, although close to the centre of Windermere.

We had a lovely stay at Ellerbrook House, we were in a family room which was beautifully decorated and so clean. We have stayed many times at Beckmead House next door which is also owned by the same proprietors, Tilly and Phil, who do an excellent job. Great service, delicious breakfast . . . . we will be back!

We stayed in this b&b as a couple for one night at the end of June and were in a smaller (but also cheaper) room.
It was compact but had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. It seems like the owners have thought of everything and at breakfast (which was delicious) the next day nothing was too much trouble.
The b&b is located on a quiet residential street with spaces to park on the road outside. It is a very short walk to the shops and restaurants of Windermere and about a ten minute walk downhill to the lake.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this b&b and would stay here again.

We stayed at this guest house as a party of 6.
Ellerbrook is an amazing location with being walking distance to Windermere town centre and to Bowness.
Myself , my partner and our little girl shared the family room which was clean, cosy and extremely comfortable.
. The only snag was having our bathroom across the hall and with a little one, it posed to be fairly difficult and the bathroom was very small.
My Mum had a room to herself on the lower floor which was , clean , cosy and very well decorated and had an en
Suite.
My Sister. and her partner shared another room on the lower floor which was very well decorated , spacious , clean and cosy ! Their room had an en suite also.
The breakfast at Ellerbrook was a real treat :-) Besutifully decorated tables and the food was of the highest quality .
Ellerbrook has a beauty salon inside which was a real treat also .
We all really enjoyed a very comfortable stay.
Phil the guest house owner was incredibly friendly and was a credit to Ellerbrook.
We look forward to staying here again on the future.
