Staff very helpful and took an interest in everyone with plenty of advice on offer re. places to visit etc. Busy pub with plenty of locals/walkers (and their... More

Lovely comfortable bed, adequate en suite, room rather tight such that we had to move a bedside table to open the door! Lovely evening meal, beer good, lovely open fire, good breakfast and did us a generous pack lunch. V friendly and... More

Staff very friendly and helpful. Is in a great location between the Lakes and Dales. Views from Fat Lamb and area stunning. Shame weather was very wet... More

Out in the open, good wind blowing, sits the Fat Lamb country inn and restaurant. A real old world inn inside, roaring fire, great staff, good food, comfy beds albeit basic, but what it lacks in finess, it more than makes up for with the ambience and staff. A great 'dog-friendly' place to stay.

After alot of upset from Jan to April we stayed at this small but very friendly hotel for a small break away. We were able to take our small dog with us and were made to feel very welcome. Other patrons had their dogs with them and all were well behaved. Food was served separately for diners in another room... More

Great deal via travel bird of 2 nights b&b plus round of golf for £99. Unfortunately no golf due to back problems but absolute fantastic deal and great opportunity to sample this rural rustic haven! The pub is set with an amazing cumbrian backdrop at every angle and is a lovely example of an English escape into Eden. However, had... More

Stayed here for two nights purchased through Amazon Local. The food and accommodation were very good and would definitely stay here again. Reading some of the previous comments I wondered what to expect. Yes it is a little dated but then again it is a country inn not a chic city hotel. On the minus side the walls were far... More

Lovely peaceful location, feels like the middle of nowhere but only 5 miles from Kirkby Stephen. Nice accommodation, very friendly & helpful staff plus good food. Would go back & happy to recommend to others.
