Understated. Familiar. Unique

Relax, unwind and let us look after you here at The Eltermere Inn in Elterwater. A laid-back and friendly Lake District country house hotel, we are open all year round and set in the heart of the breathtaking Langdale Valley, just minutes away from Grasmere, Ambleside and Windermere. We are all about combining the highest standards of service, good food and informality at The Eltermere Inn.

On arrival, you will be greeted by extensive lawns framed with awe-inspiring views and once inside, a warm and cosy lounge, dining areas and informal bar area not to mention the individually designed and luxurious bedrooms. Our welcoming team are ready to ensure that your stay at The Eltermere Inn is like coming home and of course with us being in the heart of walking country, we expect you to bring your muddy boots and dogs too!

Come and stay soon. We look forward to seeing you.

Relax in comfort

We have 13 individually styled bedrooms all with super comfy beds. A selection of the rooms also have roll top bathtubs for you to relax in after a day’s sightseeing or walking.

You can enjoy fabulous views of the lake and fells from most of our rooms, and don’t forget, in some of our bedrooms we welcome well-behaved dogs to stay.
