Armathwaite is neither on an A nor B road so you are not likely to go through it on the way somewhere else, but it's worth seeking out. The village also has a railway station. Lots of walks in the area. The inn is 400 years old with stone walls, and flagstones on the floor in the bar. It has been sympathetically upgraded and has 5 bedrooms. Ours was comfortable. Unusually for this type of accommodation, there was a lounge for guests' use. The main bar is very lively with the locals; always a good sign. There is a restaurant in a separate part of the bar although you may eat in the main bar also. Food was good, chosen from an extensive menu with wide variety of choice and large helpings. Staff were polite, efficient and helpful.
