The Royal Oak offers superior rooms in a pub. Fluffy towels. Robes. Straighteners! Muddy boot trays and the most dog friendly rooms I've ever encountered. Dog treats, balls and a special dog menu! Food very good ( for humans too ) Service friendly and efficient . All in a beautiful setting.

The room was large, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. I wish I could've stayed longer. There was an option to adopt a Teddy which raised a smile, and I was immediately made to feel welcome. I personally did not eat that evening but the food looked tremendous!

My wife booked us in to get away for my birthday taking our dog with us. The staff were very welcoming and the room was very nicely presented. Unfortunately due to storm Desmond we were not able to go out and about but this didn't matter the community spirit and hospitality from the staff made our stay wonderful. The food... More

What a perfect find this was. The rain was horrendous and we stopped purely by accident on our travels. It was such a cosy inviting place to stop for a drink, they happened to have one room left (the premium room) and we spent an amazing evening there. It was a beautiful room and we booked into the restaurant on... More

We can't fault this little b&b, we booked a weekend away for my husband birthday 4-6 December. We were made welcomed right from the go. Even are little Charlie dog got lots of attention. The food was superb and reasonably priced. The bedroom was outstanding, large comfy bed, all the amenities you needed and even a little treat bag for... More

My husband and I stayed for one night on a Living Social deal on 15th April. The room was very nice, spacious and clean, unfortunately let down by a very uncomfortable bed. It felt like the mattress had literally no springs in it, both my husband and I had a very restless sleep. Our evening meal wasn't very good either.... More

I am used to staying in the budget business style hotels, so it was refreshing to stay in a room with such character and it was cheaper than most of the nights that I stay in PI's. The room was very modern and more than adequately equipped (including with a teddy bear to look after which my kids would love).... More

Turned off the A66 into Appleby-in-Westmorland: is that not an inviting name? We saw the advertising board for The Royal Oak; although liking the look of the place we drove through the hamlet - but then returned! We chanced upon Senior Citizen lunches @ £5.95 for two courses. The home-made chips were very good indeed, the haddock in beer batter... More

We stayed here for one night in November. We had never stayed at an inn before so we weren't too sure what to expect. However, all the reviews on here persuaded us to give it a go and I'm glad we did as we had a very pleasant stay. We had a premium room (room six) and it was very... More
