Charming inn tucked back in a quiet neighborhood near Carlisle, Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District. The inn was built in the 1600's and includes many original fittings that add to the ambiance. We were greeted warmly and our family room for four was spotless, large and comfortable, as was the en suite bath. Don't miss dinner at the historic... More

A quaint country inn with very comfortable modern room. Real wood burning stoves and fires which were very welcome on chilly summer evening. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food good with a varied menu but be warned portions huge. Breakfast delicious and nothing was two much trouble..

Lovely food and a lot to choose from the menu. A good selection from the bar very friendly and helpful staff. Good for families, couples or groups of people. A lovely old Inn with real log fires a lovely atmosphere

On our family trip to the north, we had two nights' stopover at the String of Horses. We were met with an idyllic inn in a very small village. Great, quiet surroundings, amazing food, good beer, wonderful hosts.

We went for a quiet couple of nights before the big family do, and had a great time. Everybody very kind, nothing seemed too much trouble. Good clean room and great food. Not expensive either. Would recommend it to anybody.

Lovely old inn, the compact room was clean but very hot and no fan provided, shower wasn't great (no pressure) but nice toiletries. Not sure it's worth the rate charged as the bed wasn't the best but the food was fantastic, dinner and breakfast. Would return for food but not accommodation, based on the room we had.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and their suggestion for a restaurant was an excellent one. The room was clean, spacious and comfy and the breakfast was good. Well worth another visit.
