“Relaxing and welcoming”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

We were fortunate to have two nights at this splendid B&B. We were warmly welcomed and presented with home made cake to help us settle in. The room was spotless, spacious and the views were amazing. The bathroom was huge, modern and had everything you could possibly wish for. A range of luxury tea, coffee and biscuits were available on the landing between the three guest rooms. We took our tea down to the patio to enjoy the early evening sunshine and watch the walkers scrambling to the top of catbells. My partner used his new telescope for the first time, no light pollution and clear skies meant he saw the moon properly for the first time! Breakfast was perfect, the setting and views were beautiful and we had an abundance of home made preserves, freshly baked home made bread and a full english to set us up for the day. Just a few minutes drive frmo Kewsick with lots of restaurants for the evening, I will definitely return. Thank you to Jane, Ed and Truffle the cat for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful home.

Room Tip: We had the Robinson room which had a huge deep bath, power shower and views to die for.

We stayed at Ella's Crag due to its location at the foot of some of the best mountains in Cumbria.

Our bedroom was Catbells - and true to its name, it had glorious views of that very hill. The bathroom was excellent and very spacious - in fact the whole bedroom was very large and made us feel like we were in a much more expensive establishment. We had morning sun in the bedroom, and due to its dual aspect windows, we still had sun later in the day.

Ed and Jane were very good hosts - very friendly.

We still speak about how lovely this B&B is and we have to return some day!

A beautiful peaceful spot to relax in. Very nice room and bath. Breakfast was delicious, as are their flapjack treats. The location was a little remote and hard to find, and you had to drive someplace for dinner. Great DVD collection and views from the room.

Room Tip: Get the room with the large bathroom.

Stayed here for 2 nights in September. We picked the room with the bath (Robinson). The views from the bedroom were amazing. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent - the shower and bath was luxurious. The breakfasts were great - excellent porridge/muesli, freshly squeezed orange juice, and good choice of other breakfast foods. Thank you Ed and Jane for an excellent stay. We also liked that their cat, Truffles, deigned to keep us company while we were reading in the lounge in the evening.

Ed and Jane are gracious hosts and love what they do. The rooms were the largest we had during our 2 week trip of England and the bathrooms were spa quality! After long days of hiking in this beautiful area, a hot bath in a quiet B&B was superb.

The location is not walking distance to restaurants/town so eat your meal go back to the B&B to relax and settle in for the night. We liked the location because they are nestled in the Newfoundland Valley and on a great circular car tour close to trails and waterfalls.

We enjoyed our quiet and restful stay and appreciated the tea and biscuits available to us at any hour.

Jane makes a wonderful porridge with whiskey and the cheese omlette was my personal favorite. The breakfast room has a breathtaking view and lots of room to stretch out.

We would love to come back to the Lake District and spend a week hiking the area. We will definitely make Ellas Crag Guest House our home base.

Note: We found having our GPS unit was a lifesaver in this area.

The best stay we have in our roundtrip around the UK. The only thing I can advice to book the room with the bath. We had the room with the shower, because we don’t like to bath. But this room is very small. It’s like they think that people who like to shower don’t need space?
