The Brown Horse Inn, located in the heart of the Lake District, is a 1850’s coaching inn that offers its guests a luxurious and modern take on the rural escape.

Incorporating all of the best aspects of the high end country hotel and the homely B&B, it boasts a sleek design, innovative and contemporary cooking and boutique exclusivity. Owners Steve and Karen have developed the surrounding land and vegetable gardens, making The Brown Horse Inn virtually self-sufficient.

Lunches are served Monday to Saturday 12.00 – 14.30 & Sunday 12.00 – 15.00. Dinners are served 18.00 – 21.00 every day.

Good Morning Liz

Just to say thank you for a most enjoyable evening we spent last night.

The atmosphere was great, the food was good (not one negative comment from any of the 16 which must be a first for our Christmas do of 10 years +).

The staff and service was great for such a large  number you were dealing with.

Thank you again and I wouldn’t be surprised if we come again another year if we are allowed..

Merry Christmas to you all”

 Best regards
