Just spent a week camping in Church Stile Campsite (see my review on this), The Strands is just outside the gate of the campsite. Having eaten here 5 years earlier, I gave it a try again. I can say it has got even better, which is high praise as it was hard to beat back then. The food is excellent,... More

We were not very familiar with this side of the lakes, so after a long journey it was great to arrive at the Strands. You are made very welcome on arrival and check in no hassle, there is not much around only a pub across the road so it is worth booking a meal. The food was very good and... More

Our group came here for a long weekend last year and 13 of us came back in June this year.The welcome was just as great as last year, Mark and Lesley are brilliant hosts. The breakfasts are fantastic but so is the beer and the bar food so you get used to been spoiled.

Arrived with a group of less than fit chaps to scale nearby Scafell Pike, to be bowled over by this wonderful inn. The rooms are small but well furnished with everything giving the impression of having just been cleaned and polished. Parking was easy and the welcome warm and genuine. First stop was the bar for a pint of the... More

Lovely pub away from the hustle and bussle. Food was amazing. Although a little more pricy than I'm used to paying I have to say the quality was fantastic. Will be going back to this one! The hotrl is at the entrance to the valley. About 3 to 4 miles from the base of Scafell. And after a hard walk... More

We stayed here early in May, when we went up to scale Scafell Pike, for two nights. We had three rooms - two single and one twin. The rooms were small, but sufficient for solo travellers like us. The twin was more expensive, despite only one traveller in it. However, I understand this, the owners have a business to run.... More

Stayed here with a friend as we were climbing Sca Fell Pike and the location of the hotel in relation to the mountain was fantastic. A beautiful setting in a gloriously remote location with staff who were friendly and attentive and eager to make our stay a pleasant one. The twin room was a little small but very comfortable and...

We had lunch here on Easter Monday. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and efficient and the beer .... We even had a tour of the brewery! Over thirty types did the man say? We didn't manage to taste them all but we will be back. Thank you!

Really loved the setting of this Hotel. Warm and great atmosphere. We had heard fantastic reports of the cuisine being offered at the hotel. The Steak pie made with short crust pastry was fantastic. Massive portion size! Superb for a hearty appetite after a long walk. On the other hand...the vegetarian haggis was a great disappointment! More like a value... More
