With two dogs in tow, it was lovely to have chalet-style accommodation at the back of the inn with good areas to walk. The room was comfortable, very spacious and peaceful. Breakfast was delicious. The only drawback for us was that the vegetarian meals are from a catering company, alright but we've had them so many times before and are... More

I booked this accommodation quite last minute as my Son was attending a rugby course nearby at Sedbergh School. This is a great location, although without satnav we did get lost on the way to it. The single story rooms are set to the side of the pub in a beautiful garden setting….our room was comfortable, double bed, large sofa,... More

Had a lovely stay here on route to Scotland. Half way point for us. Was made very welcome and enjoyed a lovely meal must recommend the chips as well. The mixed grill which my son had was well worth it. Rooms very comfortable and great value. We booked on booking.com

We had a lovely weekend here in room 1. Elizabeth and David were the perfect hosts nothing too much trouble. The room was very clean, warm and spacious. We ate there both evenings sampling the gammon, the lasagne and the barnsley lamb chops. The home cooked chips were to die for. Breakfast was full english and enough to keep you... More

A warm welcome from Liz and David awaits you here. The rooms are in a separate block away from the pub and very quiet where the only sounds were bird song and an occasional baa from a sheep on the surrounding hills. If you're lucky you will see some of the birds in the wild garden where you are able... More

The room set in a single story separate block was fully equiped with ensuite shower room and separate kitchen. The latter was well equiped but we didn't make use of it. Whilst accepting that this is a country pub, the approach to the rooms through the rear garden was not inspiring, not doing anything to enhance the facilities. The breakfast... More

This was a really nice place to stay overnight on the way up to Scotland. It was small, quite and cozy. The food was also really nice aswell. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to stay over in the Lake District.

Recently stayed at the hotel for only one night. We arrived around 8.30pm and was shown to our room by the landlady and shown the information pack. We then ate in the pub, which was lovely food and quick service for a Saturday night. The room was good, and the whole place was very clean including the whole pub. The... More

Used The Head as a stop over on route to Edinburgh. Made to feel very welcome by David and Elizabeth. Great food, family room clean and comfortable, loved watching all the wild birds in the garden. Highly recommended accommodation, would certainly stay here again given the opportunity. Thanks again Dee and Trevor
