A very warm welcome

Welcome to The Eltermere

A small country house hotel with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, we are situated on the edge of Elterwater village with stunning views over Elterwater Lake and the Langdale Pikes.  Our hotel is styled in an understated and contemporary way with a range of cosy and luxurious rooms to choose from. There are plenty of areas to relax in too from a comfortable sitting room, cosy bar and extensive gardens for afternoon tea in warmer weather. We hope to cater equally well for walkers and lounge lizards alike!  This is a breathtaking area of outstanding natural beauty and we are blessed to be surrounded by the most stunning lakeland countryside and perfectly positioned for walking, visiting Ambleside and further afield or simply relaxing by the fire.  On wet days there are plenty of areas to sit and relax with a good book or take advantage of our free wireless broadband.

Our bedrooms

The Eltermere really is a home from home with twelve individually styled and quirky bedrooms.  Many of our rooms have stunning views over the gardens, fells and Elterwater Lake. All our ensuite rooms have been stylishly decorated and furnished with your comfort in mind.

Our History...

The original part of the Eltermere started life as a farmhouse with a collection of surrounding barns and this dates back as far as the late 1500’s.

However, in 1756 William Robinson remodelled the property into a more refined country residence from which it now gets its gentrified look without losing any of the original character. It remained a private home until the 1950’s when it was turned into a country house hotel.
