I needed somewhere to stay for one night whilst cycling the Cumbrian coast and I got lucky finding the Old Posting house. Landlord / owner was welcoming, helpful and good company. Large modern comfortable bedroom with large en-suite and great shower. A high standard of genuine home cooked meals and a huge cooked breakfast. Good Jennings beer. Will stay here... More

We stayed here for a night when visiting for a friends wedding - we arrived at 12:00 on the Saturday and the establishment was closed (at the front) although it says that check in is 12:00 - 23:00. We went round the back and found an elderly gentleman who helped us out, he said the owner was out, he wasn't... More

We had 3 night stay and the room we had was light airy and spotlessly clean - super en-suite... More

Staying for one night on our way to Scotland, we were unsure when we pulled up as it looked a little rough around the edges. The host, however, was very welcoming and showed us to our spotless room, with an enormous double bed. The fish and chips we opted for from the lunch menu was enormous but so nicely cooked... More

Four of us booked three nights whilst visiting relatives locally. Mick, the owner rang the night before to confirm arrival times. We were in opposite rooms, one double & a twin as booked. Very spacious, clean rooms. The beds were extremely comfortable, it was a real bonus to have comfortable chairs and plentiful tea/coffee/biscuits also. The en-suite was great and... More

We stayed 2 nights while visiting the Lake District. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Food was amazing. Very large serves and wholesome. Inn keeper was very friendly and has great local advice about off the beaten track drives which was our personal highlight for the area. Recommended!
