“Warm, comfortable rooms that are spotlessly clean. Superb breakfasts beautifully cooked and presented. Nothing was too much trouble and Matthew was a charming friendly host with a great sense of humour! Definitely be returning and thoroughly recommend this excellent B&B.”


“This is my third visit to Elder Grove since Lucy and Matthew have taken control of the place. The atmosphere is very welcoming as soon as you walk through the door. The breakfast choices are brilliant, with vegetarian options and the regular options you’d except from a Cumbrian B&B..”

“We had a lovely nights sleep at this great B and B. The service was great, warm and very welcoming. This was our first time away from a big chain hotel and it was worth every penny. I would happily stay here again. Thank you.”
