Great little place. nothing is too much trouble for the owner and staff. Meals are good, rather large portions and value for money I have stayed on business and for pleasure with my wife. Rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable

Just back from spending the weekend with a group of friends at the Old Posting House near Cockermouth. A warm welcome from the owner, Mick, a lovely guy for whom nothing was too much trouble. Hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms finished to a high standard especially the bathrooms. Really comfy king-sized beds with quality bedding, ensuring a great nights' sleep.... More

As a young, female staying away on business it was so lovely to have somewhere warm & welcoming. The owner can't do enough for you and the food is that delicious I didn't want to go Home and cook for myself! I love the little touches such as a tea pot in your room and a few sweets. I'll be...

Arrived to a very warm welcome and excellent introduction to the facilities and accommodation. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with a super-king bed and good sized bathroom with shower. Quite possibly our best ever nights sleep in hotel/guest house accommodation! Breakfast and evening meals were excellent and arrived in good time with the sort of wait you would... More

An absolute gem just off the beaten track . The rooms are delightful, the food exquisite. Stay here for warm welcome and a great nights sleep. Then landlord is a character with the gift of the gab. Ideal for butter mere and honister pass . You cannot go wrong!
