Description: The Boot Inn nestles in the tiny hamlet of Boot, deep in the heart of the Eskdale Valley. Within easy walking distance of The English Lake Districts largest and most majestic fells, yet only 7 miles from the sea. We provide first class food, drink and accommodation with nine letting bedrooms, bar, conservatory and snug areas, we also have ample car parking and a large beer garden. The inn itself has been catering for the hungry and thirsty travellers since the 17th century, offering a selection of traditionally kept cask ales, fine wines, sprits, continental beers, soft drinks and excellent food. At the Boot Inn we endeavour to source as many of our ingredients and most of our produce locally including the almost legendary cumberland sausages. Everybody is welcome including our four legged friends. With real log fires for those chilly autumn, winter or even summer days, a warm welcome is always guaranteed. The valley provides a wealth of opportunity for outdoor activity with Scafell, Great Gable, Harter Fell, Bowfell, Crinkle Crags and many others all within walking distance without having to cross a single road! Cyclists can pitt themselves against the Hardknott and Wrynose passes, the steepest section of road in England leading to the Duddon Valley and Langdale.Plus we are directly on the coast to coast mountain bike route and have secure bike storage available. For those of a more spiritual and historical interest there is to be found the remains of a Roman Fort in the upper reaches of the valley and the beautiful 14th century church of St Catherines only a short stroll away. Slightly further afield attractions such as Muncaster Castle and Eskdale Golf Course are close by.

Just returned from a 1 night stay in The Boot Inn. Visiting daughter who is working in area for summer and to celebrate her latest work achievements. All four of us spent the night and had a meal.
Really friendly welcome when we arrived, shown to rooms and a table booked for later.
Food was excellent. Catered well for the 2 veggies in the party.
Rooms clean and comfortable.
A delicious hearty breakfast too.
We stay quite frequently in pubs with rooms and what set The Boot apart was the friendly relaxed atmosphere. 2 lads behind bar last night lovely. Girl at breakfast equally so. Oh and a lovely cuddle from Frankie the boxer pup. It really makes a difference when the staff are all so nice.
We can’t wait to return.
