We (three of us) had two nights at the Eltermere last weekend and wished we'd had time to stay longer, it was lovely, and feels like the much-loved only child of Elterwater. Were someone to convince me I could run a hotel then I would do it like this. It's a superbly comfortable home with centuries of character, and with modern fittings that ensure that Things Work. Their people are friendly and attentive. OH has some dietary requirements that the kitchen was happy to accommodate and as a result she had a very enjoyable birthday. The menu is shortish, as it should be, locally-sourced, and well-judged, with things you actually want to eat: lamb, scallops, duck confit .. and OH's simple-yet-delicious chicken. We hope to return as soon as we can.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A warm welcome awaits you at The Eltermere Inn. This low-key 12 bedroom hotel offers peace and tranquillity alongside an abundance of contemporary elegance. Many of our individually styled rooms have stunning views over gardens, fells, lakes and Elterwater. We are located quietly on the edge of Elterwater village with uninterrupted views over the lake yet only 10 minutes from Ambleside’s shopping. Wrapped in beautiful gardens with views over Elterwater lake, we are perfectly placed for walking the Langdales' pikes and Loughrigg Fells or relaxing with afternoon tea, homemade cake and a good book. Dining with us is a joy either in the dining room overlooking the lake and gardens or by the fire in the cosy bar. Our food is smart but unfussy, and is contemporary cooking at its finest. Join us for lunch or dinner and enjoy an inspired menu using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. (non residents and well-behaved canines welcome) ... more less
