ELTERWATER, Ambleside, LA22 9HP
Walks and mountain-bike trails head off in all directions from the front door of this free house in the Langdale Valley, just a short drive from Ambleside, Grasmere, Windermere, Hawkshead and Coniston. Built as a farmhouse and cobbler's more than 500 years ago, the whitewashed building only became an inn some 200 years back and the bar area is essentially a series of small, cosy rooms with low-beamed oak ceilings and winter coal fires. Bar staff pull pints of guest beers nineteen to the dozen, as well as the house special brewed by Coniston. An even wider selection of real ales is available during the two-week beer festival in mid-November. The inn offers a wide choice of fresh, home-cooked food, with an evening meal typically featuring grilled sea bass fillet; or home-made chicken, ham and leek pie. Dine alfresco in the garden and take in the views of the village and tarns.
