The 14th-century Farmers Arms Hotel is set in the charming hamlet of Lowick Green. Many of the oak beamed rooms look out over Crake Valley and Old Man Coniston.
Score from 112 reviews Excellent
Good Value and useful for access to Wasdale and Eskdale
Access to the rest of the lakes is via two narrow and twisty passes
The food The location Breakfast..homemade yoghurt and jams
Wifi sketchy but understandable in the middle of nowhere. Thin wall to next room, heard every word of big brother till 23-00.
I loved the fact that you could roll up soaking wet from a hike in the fells and it didnt matter. The food is excellent and the choice of ales was good. Breakfasts were hearty as befits a B&B in the fells. Showers were good. There is also a good craic in the pub associated with the B&B Would go there again.
I found the room rather warm and the bed on the small side for a double.
Thw woolpack inn is an old pub in 2 halves. One half is the b&b the other half has been renovated to a low standard to try and modernise it. The attention to detail leaves something to be desired, our room had thread bear carpet a hole in the wall from the door handle , a bed with springs coming through the matress, and a shower that the water hardly dribbled out of the shower head. The cleanliness and overall apearance needs major attention. There are brown damp staining patches on the dining room ceiling and from the skylight on your way up the stairs to the rooms. The staff are all young students apart from a couple and seem more interested in talking to each other than serving and looking after thier customers. At £100 a night with breakfast i would not return to the woolpack inn and would sugest you look at ambleside or windermere etc as i think you would get a better class of b&b for this ammount of money .
Staff were friendly and helpful. Beer and evening food were great. Room was nice with a good sized bath for a post walk soak! Footpaths into the hills close by. Wi-Fi
Breakfast way over-priced and breakfast ingredients were poor. Fruit was damaged, bread and pancakes were stale.
Friendly place. Wonderfully isolated
Not enough places to dry things out if you have had a wet day in the lakes.
The woolpack is ideally situated in the Eskdale valley for walking and offers a friendly relaxed atmosphere for chilling out after a day's walk. The pub is very dog friendly and you must try the homemade pizzas !!
The breakfast was not upto much based on it's price and after booking on Booking.com did not realise that the price was for room only and then had to pay a further £10 per head per night for breakfast. It would have been cheaper to have booked it direct .
The room was quiet, the bed was very comfortable and the television was huge. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the sticky toffee pudding was fabulous.. We stayed here as we wanted to do some specific walks and as the weather was great we had a lovely couple of days
The room itself was a bit shabby and I had assumed that breakfast was included in the price, however it was an extra £10 per person. The menu was limited, pizzas, burgers fish and chips etc but as its the only place around they have a captive audience and their high prices reflect this. Its a shame that it was mainly the weather that made our stay enjoyable at the Woolpack.
The food was fantastic the staff were very helpful. The wholeplace was just perfect.
Great location and a brilliant pub with a great choice real ale and an excellent food menu
Room was a bit small and noisy until the bar closed but I booked late and there are quite a few rooms available
wonderful surroundings, excellent walks pizza's were awesome room was nice good beer kept the bar open for as long as you wanted Good showers. Rooms were always tidied every day
being charged £10 for a "hearty breakfast". Could get quite busy especially with alot of children, but when it was quiet it was great and you could get talking with the staff
Great staff. Rustic charm.
Room was in poor, poor repair.....towel rack, shower, tap water was brown......paint chipping ....all furniture worn past the point of being comfortable
Perfect location for some beautiful lake district walks including Scafell pike. Brilliant for exploring Hardknott fort and Harter fell. Its a fantastic place to chill out.
Modernised but traditional, excellent staff and great value for money. Already planning to return.
location was excellent the staff helpful and the locals very friendly
only there for 2 night would like to stay longer
Great location and staff. Problem with ensuite unfortunately meant a shared bathroom but staff responded in the right way with apologies and unsolicited compensation.
We were made to feel very welcome and the service at the bar was fantastic.
The food needs to improve.
Everything from the exceptional staff to the best pizzas!!! Inviting, comfortable, relaxed, homely place.
we were very happy with the first impressions on arrival and over the couple of nights we stayed the more impressed we got. paddington and dave made our trip and stay very relaxed and enjoyable. the staff are more than happy to help, it is extremely clean and the food is lovely. we will definitely be going back to the Lake District and the woolpack inn will be where we will be staying :0)
