Host Information

Host review score 9.3

The Herdwick Inn is a charming, traditional 18th century Lakeland dining venue and pub, set in the quiet Cumbrian village of Penruddock, just off the main A66 Penrith - Keswick road. A mere 7 minutes from Penrith and the M6 J40, we are an excellent "stop over" location for those travelling up and down the country on business or for pleasure. With stunning views over towards the Northern Fells of the English Lake District, including Blencathra and Carrock Fell, this is a wonderful place to spend quality time. Situated midway between Penrith and Keswick, and only 4 miles from Ullswater, the Herdwick is the perfect base for exploring the Lake District National Park. The local stagecoach service to Penrith, Keswick, Cockermouth stops right outside the pub so we have excellent transport links into the central and southern Lakes. Our restaurant is well known locally for the quality of its food and our bar serves some of the best kept real ales in the Lakes. Together with our en-suite bed and breakfast accommodation, this is a special place to visit. We're dog friendly too. Visit our website theherdwickinn . co . uk for further details or to see our latest updates.

Chris and Chloe have been running the pub for the last 2 and a half years and have really turned the Inn in to a 'place to be' kind of venue. They get great reviews here on booking . com and are proud of the work their staff put in to making guests feel welcome. It's due to this that they see guests returning time and time again!
