Fantastic base to walk numerous lakeland fells. A warm welcome awaits from the owners and their team. Comfortable and clean with superb food and an amazing wine list. Packed lunches for the adventorous traveller are very good value and when the weary traveller returns from the fells, a very inviting bar, bath, food and bed awaits.Liz and Andy cannot do... More

We had a fantastic couple of days in this hotel. The location is excellent, from our room we had wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. We were made to feel extremely welcome and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. They were always on hand for a drink, or helpful information, or... More

Had a lovely stay recently...food was divine and locally sourced. Spoilt for choice with local beer and a cracking wine list. The staff were warm and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. An ideal base for exploring the Lake District...so much to see and do. Dogs are welcomed so it meant our old chap could come along and enjoy... More

Immediately felt welcomed by Liz and Andy. Had a lovely light and airy room at the front which had beautiful views. Large comfortable bed. Excellent food. Liz makes the best scrambled eggs I've ever tasted, and Andy arranged a picnic lunch for us one day which was perfect - home made bread, fruitcake, fruit and a mars bar for energy... More

Stayed for 2 nights with our springer spaniel Oscar. Great to find such a good dog-friendly place as well as such a well stocked bar of real ales for my hubby. Dogs allowed in the bar, next door dining area & bedroom, even had doggy towels in boot room. All staff from reception to the youngest of waiters/resses were very... More

This was our third visit to Middle Ruddings and this time we were bringing an 8 month baby as well as the older boys. Once again the room was clean and comfortable, the kids loved the toys and games in the residents lounge and the ever changing selection of Cumbrian ales were well kept. Each night the children ate at... More
