Stayed over one night on a recent business trip to the Eden Valley. Fully refurbished 17th century hostelry with all mod cons, excellent ensuite bedrooms, and very welcoming bar and restaurant. Good choice of local real ales. Excellent evening meal and breakfast in the morning. Well located between Penrith and Appleby.

Beautifully appointed, warm and comfortable rooms. Wifi super easy to access and very reliable so working after dinner was very easy. Really nice staff in both the evening and morning. Great food - both dinner (with a great choice of beers and wine) and breakfast Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend
