Welcome to Elterwater Park


Once a 17th century traditional working farm, our family-run farmhouse Bed and Breakfast and self catering barn accomodation have much to offer. Come and relax, enjoy a warm welcome and experience a slower, peaceful pace of life in this beautiful setting.

See the chickens in the yard and the sheep in the fields. 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!

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.

The Tea rooms can also be hired out for a venue for a birthday or other special occasion if staying at Elterwater Park. 

The Tea rooms are open as and when staffing allows. Please call beforehand if you are thinking of visiting.

Dog Friendly Accommodation

Dogs Can Stay Too in our Self Catering Barns.

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.
