Final weekend away before Lockdown 2.0!
Cosy historic pub, excellent food Covid compliant, and set in a great area for walking, to Coniston, Dungeon Gyll, Little Langdale, Grasmere and Ambleside. Or spending the afternoon sat beside the fire!

Lake district hotel.
The room was small but adequate with good storage space. The Inn relies heavily on outside guests and so getting a booking for dinner was on a first come first served basis regarding times. The main downside was the lack of any comfortable lounge seating for residents either in the room or elsewhere - a problem for us as we are both in our 80s. Good location, ideal place for younger walkers. Huge portions of good food.
