Our first B&B experience in Ambleside & we could not have picked a better place to stay for 5 nights.
The additional health protocols that Matt & Lucy have introduced to cope with Covid requirements didn’t detract from an extremely pleasant stay.
Breakfast at Elder Grove offers a great selection of local produce from a comprehensive menu is very impressive, and it’s a breakfast that sets you up for the rest of the day.
The on site parking is a big plus also for this B&B, a B&B that we are more than happy to recommend.
Elder Grove is ideally situated for a stroll into Ambleside as a starting point for a number of walks & also a great selection of restaurants for later in the day.


We really enjoyed our stay with you over the weekend.  Often it’s those seemingly little touches that add to the quality of a stay such as the organic herbal teas, the gorgeous Pure Lakes products, the fluffy white towels, using local produce for a wonderful breakfast and the welcome on arrival to name but a few.

We hope to return one day and will recommend you.

Ps. The quirky little wooden mouse made us smile too!

We have just enjoyed a further stay at Eldergrove, only several weeks from our first encounter. Our weekend was first class with constistency being the operative word. Matt and Lucy are superb hosts behind which is a quality establishment in every sense. The breakfasts are amazing with impeccable service. Ambleside center is only a few minutes away with all the usual amenities and with very inclement weather over our weekend stay, returning to the warmth and comfort provided at Eldergrove was an absolute joy.

We strongly recommend Eldergrove as the number one spot.

Many thanks, John and Lorna.
