We visited Elim house for 3 nights. We had previously visited Bowness - on- Windermere last August but had stayed at a B&B further out. Being 6 months pregnant we wanted something closer to the lake. The location is brilliant ! The new owner was helpful in catering for my gluten intolerant partner providing gluten free bread in the morning for breakfast! He was also interested in asking our opinion on certain improvements including would we have been willing to pay for guaranteed parking. The breakfast was very slow and a little disappointing when it arrived. Either a simple hot breakfast or fruit and yogurt and the fruit was a small portion. The bed was very uncomfortable and being 6 months pregnant I didn't get much sleep as you could feel every single spring. There was still a dirty towel hanging in the bathroom when we arrived (the owner did apologise) and the room was very cold and dated. There is also no guaranteed parking and not much alternative options of where to park. We also had to pay by cash due to some card machine issues. On the whole the owner is new and trying very hard! Nice welcome and hope that he will make the necessary improvements needed to make this a good value B&B but in its current state we would probably look elsewhere if we were to visit again.
