We visited Elim Lodge in August with our two daughters aged 8 and 4 and had the double/family room with an adjacent bathroom. On previous visits we stayed in the double ensuite which was at the top of the house.
The B&B is situated really conveniently for Bowness and Lake Windermere - the shops, restuarants, lake and boats were only a short walk away and there was off-road parking which was a bonus. We also used the leisure pass for Parklands Leisure at the Burnside Hotel which is at the other end of Bowness. The girls enjoyed the swimming and we also took advantage of the jacuzzi and steam/sauna room.
The room was clean and comfortable, the furniture maybe could do with a little updating, but it did not affect our stay. The adjacent bathroom was modern, clean and huge! It was accessed via a short corridor with a couple of steps. The double room we stayed in previously was at the top of the house had an ensuite shower room and was full of character (including beams!).
The Cumberland breakfast was a treat. Locally sourced sausage, bacon and eggs, it was all freshly cooked to order. Also available were cereals, juice, croissants, toast, fruit, yoghurt and vegetarian and lighter options.
The hosts, Rodger and Linda really made the stay for us. They are very welcoming, very friendly and down to earth, always ready with a suggestion for a walk. They care about the environment and have an eco/fairtrade ethos, from the tea and coffe right down to the shower gel!
Once again, a warm and welcoming stay, looking forward to returning soon.
