Discover the beauty of the Lake District

Whatever the weather, you can always count on the Lakes

Here at the Great Inns of Britain, we believe good news needs to be shouted about – over and over again! So with that said, have you heard that the much admired Lake District has recently been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site – unsurprising with its abundance of beautiful lakes, spectacular coastline and of course, its charming Cumbrian Inns. With over 912 square miles of ground to cover, we desperately encourage you make a weekend of it and between The Wild Boar and The Pheasant you won’t be short of a place to stay.

Fortunately, the Lake District can be relied upon, even when the British weather cannot -with plenty of things to explore and discover all year round.

The Pheasant

Nestled in a peaceful setting close to Bassenthwaite Lake, The Pheasant is one of the last remaining traditional Cumbrian hostelries and exudes a peaceful, period atmosphere. Awash with colour and full of life, the garden at The Pheasant is the perfect place for enjoying a spot of al fresco dining and a drink or two in the throws of summer; whilst the promise of roaring fires, squashy sofas and delightful Afternoon Tea is enough to make us look forward (kind of) to the winter months.

Offering glorious views, luxurious rooms, delicious food and of course, great beer, wine and whisky; The Pheasant Inn is the ideal base for exploring the neighbouring market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth before returning for a relaxed evening at the bar.

No need to leave your four legged friend at home, the Pheasant Inn has 4 dog friendly rooms available so you and your pooch can enjoy a break in the countryside together.

The Wild Boar

Tucked away in stunning Gilpin Valley, with over 70 acres of private woodland, The Wild Boar is the perfect location for discovering the natural beauty of Lake Windermere whilst in a serene and peaceful environment.

During the summer months, the Wild Boar woodland is adorned with vivid bluebells and striking flora – making for a particularly scenic country stroll; whilst the hidden treehouse and outdoor climbing frame are perfect for keeping the little ones entertained. Alternatively, make the most of the frosty landscapes before returning for a well-deserved meal at The Wild Boar’s ever popular Grill and Smokehouse.

Famed for its welcoming atmosphere, traditional British cooking and stylish country guestrooms; The Wild Boar promises to be an idyllic haven for the whole family to enjoy.
