Once again a home away from home. Rhoda, Cath and Barry really do look after you. It's in a great location, clean and very welcoming. All little extras in the rooms including a really nice fruity shower gel! We were disappointed that we were not snowed in as we would have easily stayed an extra night and get another excellent breakfast. Thanks again guys x would definitely be looking to stay again for our third trip to the lakes. Susan and Dave (from London)

We loved our stay at Ellerdene! We were warmly greeted on arrival and the room was lovely, comfortable, cosy, homely and had some nice little touches. The room had a kettle, fridge, heater, hairdryer and a super comfy bed! It is nice and close to the town, the train station and to the Lake. We also tried some nice restaurants nearby which were all a short walk. The breakfast was good - you fill out an order form, selecting from a brief menu of cooked food. There is also cereal and juices. A really nice stay.

Firstly, thanks for the whole family ( Barry, Rhoda and cath) , who provided a very clean and comfortable room 4 with all facilities we expected. We stayed here for two days .
What's more , when we arrived at Windermere , It was too late and we feel so hungry, so after we put down the luggge , we went to have our dinner in the restaurant, then after we walk out the restaurant , we found three guys about 15 or 16 years old tailing after us , which made us very weird . So we called them for help. Barry and Cath came to us within 5 minutes and picked us up . It made us so much moved .
Besides, it is located in the center of Windermere, and only five minutes' walk to the rail station, plus lots of choices for meals around ellerdene .
Hence, we are very pleased to recommend this b&b for every one who want to travel at the lake district . R&C

We stayed here for one night in the half term holiday, we had a lovely warm welcome (with help to bring our things in ) . We stayed with our two young children aged 5 & 2 , and they were also made to feel very welcome.

Our room was lovely and clean, comfy too .

Breakfast was lovely, and plenty of it. My daughter even said how kind they were.

Would stay here again , the family were so lovely.

Just had a 2 night stay at Ellerdene for my birthday. Andy and I were made to feel very welcome by Barry, Rhoda, and Catherine. Our dog Alfie also had a lovely welcome which was appreciated!

Rooms spotlessly clean, fantastic shower and a very comfy bed which i didn't expect from a guesthouse. Great cooked breakfast, again family couldn't do enough for us and even offered to make us a bacon sandwich to take out when we had to miss breakfast to catch our train!

Lovely quiet street but great location for windermere train station and bowness (few mins walk away)

Fanastic value for money, we'll be recommending Ellerdene to friends and family and hope to return soon!

so glad you enjoyed a nice experience for your Birthday in finding that we not only welcome People but their pets (Dogs) as well. Thank you for your wonderful comments and we are pleased you were happy with the Sandwich we made you in place of your Breakfast for your early departure.We do live a nice quiet street but close enough to the shops, restaurants etc.We look forward to another visit.( with Alfie of course)
