A gem of a find... this suited our needs just great. We needed a stop over from driving back from Scotland to the south east. This place is very homely, plenty of space to park, the room provided perfect family accommodation looking over a tranquil garden area. The bed linen and towels lovely and clean, hot drink making facilities were... More

Good sized family room with comfy furnishings. We found the double bed a little soft. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and served in traditional pub surroundings. Big car park so no problem there. The garden outside is very pretty, full of flowers and birds. The pub is quite isolated though handy for Sedbergh. The very rural location is great if... More

Are you looking for a place away from it all nestled in the beautiful Lake district? We stayed here for a few days and loved it. Elizabeth and David were so cordial. Her cooking changed my view of English food. The birds we saw in the gardens were amazing. It was a quiet, wonderful change of pace.

We stayed here for one night on a journey from Scotland. The rooms are well appointed and clean with free wi-fi and TV. We ate dinner here the evening we arrived and it was a good freshly cooked meal. We also enjoyed our breakfast. This is a lovely quiet location and convenient for Kirkby Lonsdale.

We stayed for 2 nights whilst doing the 3 peak challenge. Liz and David couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The rooms were clean,spacious and very comfortable.The beds are amazing - we're all going to be investing in memory foam mattress topper. The evening meals and breakfast were very tasty and of a good size. If we're in the... More

We have just returned from our third visit to 'The Head' and loved it. Liz and David are lovely hosts and were so sweet to our dog Tom even when his behaviour resembled that of a fractious toddler! That meant so much to us and really was appreciated. All the rooms are in a delightful garden filled with birdsong, we... More

We stayed for one night at this beautiful little gem near Kirkby Lonsdale. I say beautiful because the double room was perfect for our needs, separate from the main building with a lovely peaceful garden at the front of it. All four rooms are situated in a block next to the garden area. The suite itself was very clean and... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Scotland. The welcome was very warm and friendly. The room was well-appointed, warm, clean and comfortable. Dinner was excellent and great value. The breakfast was first class. Would certainly stay again.

Very friendly place. Very peaceful and ideal location for a quiet break away and some walking. Dog friendly. Very good pub food and although we didn't sample it the full English breakfast looked a thing to die for. Rooms at the rear of the premises are perhaps a little tired but perfectly pleasant.
