Despite what the last post said, this is a great b&b in a lovely location at a great price. Would recommend on rhis and the lovely full English we had on both mornings. The owner is fine and we had a nice chat with her before we left about our experience of the drunken guest next door on Sunday evening....

We booked a last minute getaway and were excited to arrive at Elim house. When booking we were asked to provide an estimated check in time, due to traffic issues we were running behind schedule and received a text message followed by a phone call from the owner who was very abrupt, reminding us that check in finished at 9pm....

It was the people in the adjacent 2 rooms who reported the shouting and banging of doors at 3am AND 5am and a telephone number was left in case of any heating problems which were not reported? And no mention of the fence?

It's a quaint place with a bit of a rustic feel. The lady who runs the B&B is nice and accommodating. The B&B is walking distance from Windermere which has several stores and restaurant, and is overall a very picturesque lake town.

My wife and I had a beautiful time at Elim house in Lake District. We were able to park our hire car out the back and just go for walks without worrying about parking.

The B&B was nice enough. We were in the lake district one a long weekend. The gardens out front were beautiful and if it hadn't poured rain our entire trip, it would have been a nice place to relax. The breakfasts were ok. Fresh fruit and yogurt would have been nice, but everything that was provided was tasty enough. Parking...

Clean and comfortable room with excellent ensuite facility. The two breakfasts we had were great and they accommodated us with some food to take away on one morning when we wanted an early start. Location is good - just off the main road running through the town. Couldn't fault it - it suited us and we'd not hesitate in going...
