Welcome to Elterwater Park Guest House

We are now open and taking bookings . We are offering a full refund on any direct booking made through our website that needs to be cancelled due to Government lockdown at Elterwater Park.

Due to COVID we now operate in a way that balances health and happiness for all our guests and us, complying with the social distancing guidelines put in place by the government. We have converted our existing barn rooms to include fully equipped kitchens so that the barn rooms can be booked on a self catering basis only.

There will be some changes to how we do things and some things will look different, but our core values remain the same and we are committed to ensuring that you still have an enjoyable stay at Elterwater Park.

See you soon,
Liz and Dave

Visit England Good to Go

Covid Policy: We have prepared some Covid guidelines ready for welcoming guests back to both our B&B and self catering accommodation.

Once a 17th century traditional working farm, our family-run guest house has much to offer. Come and relax, enjoy good food, a warm welcome and experience a slower, peaceful pace of life in this beautiful setting.

See the chickens in the yard and enjoy their eggs at breakfast. Step from the front door onto the Cumbria Way and walk to places such as Colwith Force, Tarn Hows or Elterwater’s Lake of Swans. Be more adventurous and walk in the beautiful Langdale valley or other surrounding fells. The local towns of Ambleside, Coniston or Hawkshead are within easy reach if you fancy something less strenuous!

We hope you will join us here in this idyllic setting and we look forward to welcoming you to our home.

B&B Bedrooms


There is a choice of six individually designed bedrooms, each with en-suite shower, luxury toiletries, flatscreen TV, plus tea and coffee making facilities.


Breakfast is served in our bright and spacious breakfast room with windows that let in the morning sunshine, the ideal place to watch the birds on the bird feeders. Breakfast is usually served from 8 – 8.30am, but any customers who need to set off early can pre-order a cooked breakfast from 6:30am

Self Catering

Self Catering

There is a choice of three self catering barns.. Low Barn sleeps 2 adults, or 2 adults + 1 child under the age of 10, whilst The Grainstore sleeps 2 adults. The Byre can either be rented with one bedroom for 2 adults or rented with Pinfold for a family which gives an extra twin or king bed.

Our Farmhouse is also available for exclusive use self catering. With 5 en-suite bedrooms, lounge, dining room, large farmhouse kitchen and shared use of a beautiful large garden with views over Loughrigg Fells it is a perfect getaway for up to 10 people. Together with the barn rooms it could accomodate 18 people.

Muddy Boots Tea Room

The Barn Tea Rooms are situated in the original cow byres on the ground floor of a traditional Lakeland Bank Barn, just across the cobbled yard from the main house. Tables and chairs are arranged in the old stalls. There is a lovely roaring log fire to keep you warm on colder days. On sunny days there can be nothing nicer than to sit outside in the garden where tables, benches and chairs are arranged, to eat your meal gazing out towards Loughrigg and the surrounding fields.

Dog Friendly Accommodation

Dog Friendly Accommodation

Well behaved dogs are welcome to stay in our self-catering barns (Low Barn, The Byre and The Grainstore). We do not accept dogs in our Bed and Breakfast. We ask that dogs are not left unattended inside the accommodation and that they are kept on a lead within the grounds and in neighbouring fields due to chickens and livestock.

We provide a dog gate between the main living area and the tiled porch area and that we expect dogs to be kept in the tiled area and off the soft furnishings.

We are ideally located right on the Cumbria Way walking route close to the Langdale Valley, Ambleside and Coniston in the heart of the Lake District National Park.
We are surrounded by Lakeland fells and there is a great choice of walking routes available including low level walks around nearby Tarn Hows and Elterwater through to challenging Wainwright Peaks including Wetherlam, Pike O'Blisco, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and Coniston Old Man to name just a few.
