We stayed here on two separate nights as a stop over on our way to and from Scotland. On each occasion we received a very warm welcome from Colin, and he and his team looked after us extremely well throughout each stay. The rooms are most comfortable and the food, especially breakfast, was great. Just a lovely comfortable pub to... More

We stayed here for 1 night for my husbands birthday. I arranged a bottle of champagne as a surprise . We stayed in the room with a whirlpool bath which was lovely. Food is served until 8.30pm and we had not read the information in the room. We went down just after and we were lucky enough to be served... More

A friend and I stayed at the String of Horses for just one night on our way up to Scotland. I would absolutely recommend this inn to anyone as the owners were very welcoming, the rooms were lovely, clean, warm and comfortable and the food was delicious. We would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for one night. The service was excellent. The accommodation was clean and very good. The staff were all very friendly. This was our second stay at the String of Horses and if we are in the area again we would happily stay again.

Positive points: A 17th century inn with loads of character. It has a stunning wooden carved bar dated 1694 which gives the main bar area its character. It's leaded windows and low ceilings add to this....if you're over 5'6...duck before going through one of the doors. The bar area and restaurant are fittingly traditional in decor. The letting rooms are... More

Charming old country pub with comfortable rooms in a quiet rural area. We all had an excellent evening meal at a reasonable price with very pleasant and helpful staff. Next day we enjoyed a visit to Carlisle, stunning cathedral, castle and modern civic centre.

My girlfriend found this hotel on Wowcher as we were looking for places to stay during a trip to England. The deal provided a huge discount on their standard price which to be honest I would not have paid given that it is a car journey away from any attractions, tourist sites or shops. Having said that, the stay was... More
