“Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Superb room and breakfast.”
Reviewed April 21, 2011

Stayed for one night with my wife and 2 year old daughter. Cath and her family were very welcoming with neverending smiles and made us feel at home right from the moment we walked in. My daughter warmed up to them very quickly. The room was extremely comfortable and cozy, with a great breakfast the following morning. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for a great B&B experience!!

Cannot recommend this guest house highly enough. We received a very warm and friendly welcome from the owners which made us feel instantly relaxed. The rooms are bright, very modern and extremely comfortable with excellent en suite facilities. The beds are bliss, so comfortable that we didn't want to get up the following morning. We had a really tasty and filling breakfast. Good quality food all served with a smile and friendly conversation.It is well located in Windermere village too. We will definitely return to Ellerdene!!!

The Ellderdene Guest House is located close to the train station which is only a 5 minutes walk. The room was very clean and was equipped with a TV, refrigerator and a water boiler. The bathroom was small but clean and well equipped. The shower has also a massage fuction which is really nice after a long day in the Lake District.
The british breakfast was okay but I've definately seen better ones.
I would therefore definately recommend this B&B for your stay in the Windermere region.

My partner and I stayed with Cath at the Ellerdene Guest House at the end of September for 4 nights.
We had a very comfortable stay and Cath was warm, friendly and welcoming.
The room was very comfortable and clean, and the bed was comfy which is really important.
Breakfast was good (although I felt that the Baked Beans lacked sauce) and served quickly and at a reasonable time in the morning. Not too early!
I thought overall Ellerdene House provided good B&B accommodation at a reasonable price a minute's walk from Windermere and 20 mins walk from Bowness and I felt that it was good value for money.
I would certainly recommend to stay here, and would return. Thank you Cath! Great hospitality!

We visited this guest house and had what can only be described as a superb 4 day stay, great and friendly are words that come to mind. Food was excellent as was the comfyness of the bed, nothing was too much trouble and we felt really at home from the minute we walked in.The accomodation was impeccably clean. We will return in the near future to sample some more of this great place.

We stayed at the Ellerdene Guest House in April 2010. It is a family run guest house and is at walking distance from the Windermere Train Station. I would strongly recommend the guest house for its cleanliness, hospitality, big rooms, and for the closeness from the lake & the local market. Catherine, the beautiful girl who owns & manages the guest house, was very helpful and cooperative when we ran out of milk for our baby.

They serve full English breatfast and its freshness makes it quite filling. If you are a vegetarian, they serve vegetarian breakfast too. Catherine offered free use of the country club, but we had a tight schedule and could not make use of that. It is a very friendly family and you will enjoy staying at their guest house. Will stay again.
