Elterwater is a small lake that lies half a mile (800 m) south-east of the village of the same name. Both are situated in valley of Great Langdale. Only a quarter of the houses in Elterwater are permanently occupied, the rest being holiday cottages.


The river Brathay which provides outflow from Elterwater, flows south to join Lake Windermere, near Ambleside.
