The original house, built in 1756 for the Robinson family, which still has to this day, unique uninterupted views over Lake Elterwater and the surrounding fells. This area, known as 'Langdale' boasts some of the finest views and some of the very best walking and all from our front door.


We have fifteen double or twin rooms with baths or showers and two single rooms with adjacent facilities. Some of our bedrooms have stunning views and others with exposed beams.


The Lounge with its log fire provides the perfect setting for afternoon teas, pre-dinner drinks and chatting to fellow guests.

We are fully licensed and have Guest Beers on draught to enjoy in our bar area or out on the lawns enjoying the amazing view. This means any time you are in the area you can just 'pop in' for a glass of wine or beer, away from the bustle of Elterwater.

The Restaurant, which can seat 40 guests, has panoramic views over Lake Elterwater and Loughrigg fell. We have a very special reputation for our food and hospitality and for the benefit of all guests we operate a non-smoking policy throughout the hotel. Please refer to Food & Wines page.

The newly created 1st floor sitting area has the best view in the house coupled with broadband access for your lap top, what better way to check your mail!

The gardens extend to 3 acres, just soak up the scenery with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.

We have our own boat and jetty for fishing only.


Throughout the year the Eltermere lends itself as in ideal hotel for small Wedding Receptions and Private Functions. It was in 2004 that we held our very first Wedding Reception for 20 guests, a very suitable number. The following year we 'looked after' many more, all with a similar number of guests. So far this year we have 'catered' for many more. The emphasis, as always, is on excellent quality and organisation. If you are considering a lovely venue for a small Wedding Reception then please contact Jonathan for a detailed quotation and a tour around the hotel.

Fresh local ingredients, years of experience, care and attention to detail. Joints of local meat roasted, casseroles braised and fish baked, all in our Aga, which really does make a difference. We change our menu every day and dinner is served at 7.00pm straight from the Aga. Great care has been taken in selecting a list of fine wines from around the world to compliment the food we serve. Real Ales and much more in our welcoming cosy bar.
