Elim Bank Guest House Information


We are a bed and breakfast with 7 guest rooms in a beautiful Victorian era property. We do not accept any pets. We are 5 minutes walk from the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and 8 minutes walk from the stunning Bowness Bay on Lake Windermere & the famous Windermere Lake Cruises! We have free WIFI, free on-site private parking, all rooms are en-suite and we serve a full English breakfast and have a continental buffet available every morning.. If you have any special requirements just let us know and we'll be happy to do all we can. Visitors can sample the unusually varied and magnificent landscapes both in and around Lakeland or the many places of historical or local interest including famous houses, beautiful gardens or sites of antiquity. The Lake District holds a wealth of interest for the tourist whether on foot or with transport. Bikes and Cars can be readily hired and the local bus services are extensive and regular and of course, as Bowness is centred half way along the Lake, you are able to take advantage of the lake ferries which can take you down to Lakeside at the foot of the Lake where you can visit the superb "Aquarium of the Lakes" and take a journey on the Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Alternatively, you can take a cruise to Ambleside at the head of the Lake, which is another of the beautiful villages in the Windermere area. LATE CHECK-IN FEES: “Un-scheduled” late check-Ins not only affect this business, but other guests and our personal schedules. There is no after-hours reception at the property so unless agreed otherwise, check-in after 7pm will not be available till the next morning. Any late check-in must be requested prior to booking, by phone or email and are at an additional fee of £10 per hour if we agree we can accommodate your request. We appreciate your understanding.
