“Ambition realised at last!”

We have walked past this lovely place many times on one of our favourite walks from Colwith to Skelwith and have often commented it looks a nice place to stay. Finally acheived the ambition this Easter weekend and were in no way disappointed. Neil & Lesley made us very welcome, the rooms are just right and the views 2nd to none - thanks in part to the glorious easter weather for once. Breakfast delicious. A definite place to return to.

Well we are very glad you did stay and that you enjoyed your time with us. People often pick up a leaflet on their walk through our farm yard and then come and stay. Thank you for your kind comments. We look forward to welcoming you in the future.

We stopped here for afternoon tea on Good Friday. The hotel is set in a delightful part of the Lake District and has a view of Elterwater (though not access to the water). The service was good and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the view and good weather. The building is 18th Century and looked very interesting and comfortable inside. I would recommend it. Wise to book. Parking in the grounds.

An excellent week of walking with a group of friends which was enhanced by the accommodation and hospitality received at this beautiful location. Lesley and Neil, our hosts, were a delight and nothing was too much trouble. They made us so welcome and we will certainly return at the first opportunity.

A superb guest house, very clean, Lesley & Neil are so accommodating & friendly. The food is excellent & is locally sourced.
The Guest House is situated in quiet area with easy access to the lakes, Ambleside is handy for shopping etc.
Free Broadband is available in the guest lounge. Its a place we would love to revisit

It was my first time in the Lake District and Leslie & Neil really welcomed me in the best way. Their place is beautiful, set in a wonderful natural setting, in the heart of the LD and with plenty of nature, silence, green moss and sheep :) Even if I had had to suddenly change my travel plans 2 days before arrival, their warm hospitality took care of everything and I felt at home away from home. Good food, beautiful rooms, attention to detail, the sensation of being taken care of without being invaded - that is the best one can wish to find! I am sure that if the future brings me back to the Lake District, that is where I will stay! Thank you Leslie and Neil!

I have just returned from my second visit to ECP and would like to say that it was as good as the first visit but cannot....... It was better!

There is a plaque in the dining room which says “May all who enter as guests leave as friends” a sentiment which Neil and Lesley seem to work by. They are without doubt very friendly hosts who run a warm and welcoming guest house providing great accommodation and food in a wonderful setting. In a world full of hustle and bustle they have created a peaceful and relaxing environment in which you can unwind in a fabulous location.

The Lake District is my favourite destination and after only two visits ECP has become my favourite place to stay. I can’t wait to go again.

Very friendly hosts, great food and fantastic rooms. This was our second stay at Elterwater Park and it won't be our last. Its good for walkers, being right on the Cumbria way. Great for touring the Southern Lakes and beyond. Most of all, its a perfect spot for relaxing!!!
