We were recommended to stop at The Masons Arms whilst on an off road safari (Kankku). We were so glad we did. The place is fantastic. Beautifully kept, charming staff, great food and stunning views. They were very busy but accommodated us with ease. Even if the weather is a bit ropey there's plenty of cover. Top marks to The... More

We arrived at the Masons Arms for a two night break while travelling around the UK. This was just what we needed after a hectic few days. This beautiful quaint country inn overlooks the winchester valley. There is nothing for miles around, so if you like the business of a town on your doorstep this is not for you. Our... More

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
