We went to the Dickensian weekend in ulverston. We stayed in the twin room which was not ensuite but we had exclusive use of a large family bathroom across the landing. Lovely welcome, substantial breakfast,nothing too much trouble hosts. Reasonably priced .

Just spent the weekend at the Red Lion, our second visit. It was just as good as the first, lovely welcome, great food and clean comfortable room. Steve and Lucy are excellent hosts and we wish them well with their plans for the future. We hope to see them again soon.

Visited numerous times between July 20th-26th, group of up to 8 with up to 4 dogs. Were made to feel very welcome. We were staying locally so just a phone call to book a table, the food was superb and the beer (Dizzy Blonde) excellent, will definitly call in again when in the area. I would recomend a visit !

.Excellent stay, very good food in the evening, nice comfortable room. Great huge breakfast. Really friendly staff. Lovely views over the hills. Possibly a make over would make this 5 star. Will return though.
