Northern Lakes

Penrith to the north of the Fat Lamb is what Kendal is to the south – gateway to the Lake District National Park, this time to the northern lakes, Ullswater and Keswick. Try the drive from Pooley Bridge past Ullswater and then on up over the Kirkstone Pass – autumn is undoubtedly the best time with glorious colours. Ullswater Steamers operate a regular round trip service between Pooley Bridge and Glenridding which is well worth a trip.

A Wonderful Hotel. Must recommend this hotel. Just checked out after a 3 night stay with my wife. Visited nearby locations such as Keswick, Grasmere and Windermere. This hotel is in a very good location for accessing the surrounding area. The hotel itself is 400 years old and is oozing character, it's warm & comfortable. We stayed during horrendous weather and the hotel was soooo nice to come back to especially it's open fire. Staff are polite, welcoming & helpful. I didn't give a 5 out of 5 because I very rarely do. Amsterdam is our next getaway

Great for us and the dog! Returned here for B&B after living in the village 5 years ago. It has not changed. The staff as friendly as ever, the food was excellent both off the menu and the full english. We arrived in the afternoon and had a walk around the village with the dog before relaxing in our spacious room before dinner. Sat in the bar for food as had the dog but I think it had a great atmosphere with the locals and the open fire. Good value for money and definitely recommended.

Beautiful surroundings for a quiet relaxing break, tasty food and wonderful staff. Lovely relaxing stay as part of a longer road trip. Comfy bar, lovely staff and tasty food!

My wife and I were just passing The Kings Arms tonight and decided to stop for food. We had the mushroom and haggis starter, I had the New York burger and my wife had the stir fried chicken. The food was excellent, as was the beer and the service; we will certainly return. The only negative was the size of the portions - we couldn't eat it all! Brilliant!

Enjoyed a two night stay here in a comfortable double room with en suite bathroom. The owners and staff were friendly and welcoming, we came with bikes to explore the area and were able to lock them up in a secure outhouse overnight. Our breakfasts and meals in the bar and restaurant in the evening were very good indeed!

We used this little pub as a stop over en route from The Midlands to Loch Lomand, and it was a great little find. 
We had our dog with us and this really wasn't a problem. We were allowed to take him in the bar, where we had a lovely evening meal, and a table was set up for us in the bar area for breakfast (dogs are not allowed in the restaurant/breakfast room, nor are they allowed in rooms unattended)
We were in room 7, which faces the road at the front of the property. It is such a quiet little village that there was hardly any traffic to disturb us, nor was there any noise from the downstairs bar. The village itself is very pretty. The room was very traditionally decorated, clean and comfortable. 
A hearty breakfast and friendly hosts make this the perfect place to visit.

We stayed one night here in room 8. Our room was spacious and quiet. Our hostess was very attentive to our needs. We ate dinner in the bar and enjoyed a good quality pub meal in a cosy and friendly environment and a hearty English breakfast the next morning.

Just arrived home from a 2 night stay with our dog at this fabulous establishment, management and staff were top notch, food and drink were superb, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We could not have asked for any more and would recommend to anyone.
Thanks for a lovely stay
