Winter escape - peaceful time in the Lakes

Winter in Eskdale is always quiet, no more so than when snow is on the ground.

It never lasts long in the valley though, and we have good access out to the A595 coast road and back to the M6 in about an hour.

Our winter rate is £80 per night for a double or twin room when booked direct on this site. Other offers may popup too so always have a look from our booking page above or to the right. We have rooms available this weekend and next when it is our whisky tasting on the Friday night(23rd Feb)

Late Availability

Heading for a busy few weeks, but we have rooms available next week, so grab a quick getaway and hope the sun shines

September and October

As often happens in August we get a little bit of rain, this year that seems to have happened most days! It keeps the lakes full and the fells green, so can't really complain.

But never fear the school holidays are over and the sun will return for a glorious September and a halcyon October, at least we can dream!

September is always busy at the Inn, but we have some availability in the first 2 weeks and a few towards the end of the month. check our booking button on the right (or below if on a mobile)

October has a fair bit of availability, but get booked soon, especially for weekends.

As always please book direct, not only for the best rate, but also it makes us happy!
