What a delight it was to stay at this wonderful inn on Cartmel Fell. The room we had overlooked the Winster Valley and was a great example of how to treat your guests. Eat in the restaurant one nigh and that was again a great experience. If you have the chance, visit this place.

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend with 6 friends. Enjoyed two fabulous evenings with excellent beer, wine and the most amazing food. The portions are enormous so we very much over ordered on the first night ! Under cover seating with heaters and rugs provided make it possible to sit outside even on a cold evening to... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst travelling around to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The rooms were all very clean, and beautifully presented. Also very quiet. The food was fabulous, though they don't serve breakfast until 9.30am which was very disappointing and too late for us as we like to get on with the day.

Have just returned from a weekend at the Masons Arms, it was fantastic, the food was excellent, service was efficient, atmosphere great, and best bed to fall into after a hard days hiking! The views from the patio was so beautiful, just wish we had more time to see and do more. We will be back !

Stayed here in 2011 as part of our honeymoon road trip. Remains the benchmark of all pubs / inns for me. Great atmosphere, very cosy. Just the right balance between comfort, indulgence and non-pretentious elegance. Can't wait to go back, this time with the kids

I have been to this pub dozens of times and it has never disappointed. Tasty pub food, good service and a beautiful setting. I have also stayed here on one occasion which was lovely to spend more time in this picturesque valley and also sample more of the delicious food. The rooms are nicely decorated.

Went here on recommendation of owners of house we are renting in Bowness. After a tortuous journey through some very narrow lanes (journeys using satnavs can be interesting at times) we enjoyed an excellent meal in a cosy environment. The steak pie was superb as was the Cullen Skink.

We first came across The Masons Arms when camping in 2009. It was the most welcome of sights on a long, rainy walk. We popped in for a drink and a bite to eat which gave us the energy to make our way back to the campsite. We have always remembered it but, until now, never been back. The Strawberry... More

We stayed at The Mason's Arms for 2 nights as a birthday treat and cannot recommend this place enough. The location was fantastic with beautiful scenery. We stayed in The Gummer's How suite which could not have been improved upon. The room layout was perfect and the bed was very comfy with exceptional countryside views. We ate dinner here one...
