Ellerdene Guest House
Ranked #21 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 25, 2013

The owner is very nice and the room is lovely! Guests can choose what they want for their breakfast in advance by completing the breakfast form. There is a bus stop near Ellerdene which allows you to take bus to different parts of Lake District. On the first night when we came back, we found a tin with homemade carrot cake in it, which warmed our hearts. The last morning when we asked about the bus fare to the train station, the owner immediately said that he could give us a lift. What a great B&B! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The room on the ground floor is suitable for people traveling with heavy luggage.

We stayed only 1 night on the way north. Clean and homely B&B. The triple room was spacious. Location wise, it is only a short 10min walk from the train station. Also walking distance to Bowness for the cruises & lake. As we had to leave early the next morning to catch a train, Cath, Rhonda and Barry were really wonderful and had breakfasts packed for us!

The rooms are a bit small, the bed is a bit too small. It's quite noisy form the adjoining bathrooms. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is fine. Location right next to the center is great, you can also walk to Bowness (15-minute walk).

Thank you for your review, although we are sorry to hear you weren't completely satisfied with your stay at Ellerdene, we are also very disappointed that you didn't feel you could raise these issues with us whilst you were here as you did mention we are very friendly, which is kind of you to say as we do like to try and make everyone welcome and would have done our best to sort out anything that was bothering you.
The room you chose to book, online, is our smallest double en suite room and as such this is reflected in the price, you also commented on the noise from adjoining bathrooms?, this room has no adjoining bathrooms and is linked to a room that is not used but we do apologize for any disturbances you may have heard, though we cannot think what this may have been.
We are pleased you found the location good and maybe you could try one of our larger double en suite rooms if you decided to come to Windermere again.

Wonderful B&B. Beautifully decorated, spacious and bright. But above all were the hosts. Cath and Rhoda were welocming beyond description really. We could have stayed there and not leave. I would recommend without hesitation to everyone. A few minutes walk from the station and near to the lakes. I absolutely loved staying there. Well done Cath and Rhoda you're doing a splendid job, keep it up. We will come again when the whether is warmer so keep our rooms.

Room Tip: All the rooms are just superb. We took a tour. So really your choice, you won't be let down.

A very warm welcome on arrival, a lovely family run guest house a must for everyone who is looking for somewhere homely to stay in the Lake District. We cannot recommend this place enough. Ellerdene is far enough away from any hustle and bustle but close enough to walk into Bowness and Windermere. Ideally located with such a welcoming family. We are looking forward to coming back again soon. As Ellerdene has a special place in our hearts! Thank you to Catherine, Rhoda & Barry for a wonderful stay.

Nice, family run B & B. The hosts are very friendly and welcioming. The place is very neat and clean and the rooms have a nice and tasteful decor. Ellerdene is located in a nice, quiet area, quite close to Lake Windermere. The breakfast was also good and of good quality. Looking forward to my next visit!
