Visit England: We're Good to Go

Welcome to Elterwater Park Guest House

We are excited to say that we are reopening self catering from April 12th 2021 and Bed and Breakfast from May 17th 2021 in line with current Government Guidelines.We can’t wait to welcome you back.

Since the day we had to close, we’ve been working hard on a re-opening plan 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 these are now available 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
