Good Hotel Guide Review

Fell walkers, climbers – including some of Britain’s greatest mountaineers – and sleepy travellers have sought this unpretentious, dog-friendly inn, in a ‘glorious setting’, for more than 300 years. Standing at the head of the Great Langdale valley, the inn is managed for the National Trust by Jane and Neil Walmsley. Visitors like the ‘willing, helpful staff’ and ‘reasonably priced accommodation’. Home-baked treats are an indulgent addition to morning coffee or afternoon tea, served in the residents’ lounge. Most of the ‘quite basic’, ‘country-style’ rooms have dramatic, uninterrupted views of the surrounding fells. The popular Hikers’ bar (one-time cow stalls) dishes up ‘straightforward pub food’. Just ask about walking routes and packed lunches.
