Honest place in lovely position with real ales, traditional food and fine surrounding walks; bedrooms

A friendly, straightforward local, this is the perfect place for damp walkers and climbers. It's at the heart of the Great Langdale Valley and surrounded by fells including the Langdale Pikes flanking the Dungeon Ghyll Force waterfall. There's no need to remove boots or muddy trousers as you can sit on seats in old cattle stalls by the big warming fire and enjoy the fine choice of six real ales on handpump: Cumbrian Legendary Esthwaite Bitter and Loweswater Gold, Hawkshead Bitter and Windermere Pale, Jennings Cumberland and Theakston Old Peculier. Farm cider and several malt whiskies. It's a good place to stay, with warm bedrooms, a plush residents' lounge and highly rated breakfasts. It may get lively on a Saturday night (there's a popular National Trust campsite opposite).
