After a day on the hilltops we wanted some real grub. Nothing too fancy , just your typical hearty home cooking that fills you up, taste great and refuels you for the day ahead. Ideal cosy setting with a lovely roaring fire. This is what English pubs are all about in the Lakes.

We recently had a really enjoyable stay at the Swinside Inn. As other reviews have said, the inn is a lovely place to stay - the staff are very friendly, the inn itself is very cosy and the food is excellent. The rooms are warm and clean, as is the bathroom. As we were staying in February when there was... More

I booked into Swinside on a last minute deal for myself and partner. I wasn't sure what to expect as I hadn't looked into what we would be getting. Swinside is a beautiful traditional Inn with a gorgeous homely bar and restaurant, perfect for the chilly evenings with the log fire going and a beer in hand. Great end to... More

Stayed here for two nights in January for my wife's birthday to do some walking. Rooms are clean and comfortable in fact we slept like babies! The hotel is in a great location for walking which is what we wanted. Food in the hotel was ok. My food was served just warm and when it was swapped it was over... More

This pleasant Inn in the beautiful Newlands Valley has been through many changes of management over the years and not all of them good. We were pleased to see over our recent stay of three nights that this current management team have managed to maintaine the high standards that we experienced last NewYear. The menu is a lot shorter than... More

Very pleased to find this open half way round our planned walk. We were not expecting greatness on a cold December mid week day in a quiet rural area off the beaten track but we were pleasantly surprised as the pub was doing a good range of home cooked food and we had a great lunch and there were several...

Thank you for your feedback - we always want to hear how customers have felt about their stay, and I was very pleased to hear that you both enjoyed your breakfasts. We obviously don't want guests to be cold, and when you mentioned the heating, during your stay, the setting was advanced to come on immediately. It was thought that,... More
