Returned yesterday from a 3 night stay at elterwater park, what an absolutely fantastic place, difficult to know where to begin.
First impression - excellent, we were greeted with a seat in the garden with lovely home made cake, tea and coffee.
Location - beautiful, a lovely area in the langdales, secluded and peaceful, with the cumbria way passing through the guest house, a lot of walkers showing interest in staying there.
Rooms - gorgeous, we had room 6 the byre. It is one of the converted barns, with a separate lounge area, a porch, and a very comfortable double room with an on suite shower room with lovely hot water, and, toiletries provided. There was also a tv with some satellite channels, a dvd player with a selection of films, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits provided. We were also given use of an iron and ironing board for our stay.
Food - fantastic breakfasts, cooked english, specials board, cereals, yogurts, and, fresh fruit including strawberries, blueberries, melon, yummy. We dined there on our first night, and, had an exquisite 3 course meal with a very reasonable bottle of wine - it was simply gorgeous.
Hosts - saving the best till last. Wonderful, wonderful people! Neil and Lesley are so welcoming, couldn't do enough for us, drying out and waterproofing wet boots, supplying us with everything we asked for. We don't drive, they provide a very cheap service, even when it was Neils birthday he gave us a lift into Ambleside on our last evening, then drove back home to pick up Lesley and go out for his birthday meal!!
All in all a lovely stay, have taken some information home to pass on to friends that love the lake district, and, wish much success to Neil and Lesley in the future, would we stay again most definately!!
