The hosts are fabulous people, incredibly accommodating and easy to approach. The rooms are spotlessly clean with comfy beds and a homely feel. Breakfast was incredible and catered to individual needs. Location was great, 25 minute walk to the lake but right next to a wee village with restaurants, coffee shops and cute wee shops, about a quarter of a... More

This was a great base for our short, two day, stay in Windermere. Rick and Phil were wonderful hosts. The breakfast was delicious, the bed comfortable, the room quiet. The only negative was the room was a little small.

Ellerdene is a beautiful little guest house - we started our weeks touring holiday here before travelling around Scotland. Out of the four places we stayed this one was the best. Breakfast was freshly cooked and the room was lovely and clean. It is 5 minute walking distance to local shops, pubs and restaurants and a lovely 20 minute stroll... More

We recently stayed here over the august bank holiday in the family room on the top floor. We arrived later than expected due to traffic but Phil was waiting for us and showed us straight to our room. The room far exceeded our expectations and the little extras were amazing. In fact if it wasnt in the room then you... More

My husband, myself and our son stayed here for three nights recently and were really happy with everything during our visit. Great breakfast, good location to Windermere town centre and easy stroll to Bowness on Windermere. The family room we occupied was spacious and very clean. Nothing was too much trouble!

My partner booked this guest house for a 2 night stay in the lake district. On arriving we were warmly greeted by one of the owners, Richard. He was very friendly, and immediately gave some useful information about the area and the guest house itself. The room we were allocated was very roomy, immaculately clean and we'll decorated. It had... More
