The Cuckoo Brow Inn has been refurbished and is receiving visitors to enjoy a drink and a stay in a pub that once welcomed Beatrix Potter.
The Inn has been transformed into an eternally classic four star country inn, where the appeal of the famous children’s writer has been preserved.
The inn is a short stroll from the former home of Beatrix Potter at Hill Top. It’s a cosy and inviting pub with 14 beautifully styled bedrooms. It’s named after the hill on which it sits and a wood known to be a favourite place of the writer.
There are large family rooms and intimate bedrooms for two. Each one offers a high standard of accommodation with luxury furnishings, super king-size beds and en suite bathrooms. Downstairs the inn features original open fires and a wood burning stove to create a sense of warmth and comfort. The large bar serves traditional Lakeland ales. Food is hearty, wholesome and perfect for those who enjoy classic Lakeland style.
The Cuckoo Brow Inn appeals to all visitors: couples, families, walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. It also welcomes muddy boots, wet dogs and children! Other attractions include a games area where children can play. The lounge is the oldest part of the pub dating back to the 18th century. Formerly a stable, the room contains several original features.
There’s a small gift shop with Lake District items including Hawkshead Relish, Loom Hand Woven Blankets, Pringle & Fairweather beauty products and a cute cuddly dog toy. The shop also doubles as a community shop since the Inn took over the job of newspaper sales and deliveries. There is also a small library where visitors can take any book away and leave behind an unwanted book or a donation for the Cumbrian Mountain Rescue.
Sally & Dan invited Pat and me to lunch and what a fine spread it was. We were shown the bedrooms and I must say it would be a rare treat to stay there. Beatrix Potter found her best stories in the Lake District. She also found the best hospitality at Cuckoo Brow.

We would like to welcome all to our little Inn, which offers dog friendly accommodation for those wishing to bring their dog away for a holiday in the Lakes.
