Elim Bank Guest House Information


We are a bed and breakfast with 7 guest rooms in a beautiful 3 floor Victorian era property. We are 10 minutes walk from Lake Windermere! We have free WIFI, free on-site private parking (one space per guest room), all rooms are en-suite and the room rate includes a basic, self-service continental breakfast (no cooked options) in the breakfast room or breakfast to go bags. This includes a selection of cereals, toast, croissants, yogurts, fresh fruit, hot drinks and juices. We do not offer any cooked breakfast options 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 centered 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: There is no after-hours reception at the property so unless agreed with ourselves prior to booking, check-in after 7pm will not be available until the next morning. Any late check-ins 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.

Elim Bank Guest House is a 160 year old Victorian property which has 3 floors and large stone steps at the entrance. We live on the ground floor and 7 guest rooms are spread over 2 upper floors. Due to the construction style of the building, unfortunately we are not wheelchair accessible. We do not have a lift or guest rooms on the ground floor.
