Really nice b&b and a good breakfast. Only criticism would be myself and my partner didn’t sleep very well but still enjoyed our time in Ambleside at Elder Grove.

Excellent B&B
We had a lovely stay at this B&B. Room and breakfast were excellent. Situated between Ambleside centre and Lake Windermere so within easy walking distance to each. Car park was an absolute bonus. Matthew was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and was the perfect host. We will definitely stay there again and cannot recommend the hotel enough.

A wonderful place to stay even in the rain!
The weather was terrible but Matthew and Lucy more than made up for the lack of sunshine with their friendliness. Elder Grove is one of the nicest places we’ve stayed in and would highly recommend it to others. They provided a hearty breakfast and were more than happy to cater for everyone’s likes and dislikes. Many thanks! Very happy!
