  • We are looking to book for the 12th and noticed that the checkout for the room is 11am. We are attending a wedding on the 13th and wondering if there is an opportunity of extending the check out to approx 1pm on the 13th?

    Hi, We will certainly be able to extend until 12noon but would require the room back as we guarantee checkin on that day from 3pm. If the room is not let on that day we will be able to do later but can not guarantee until the day.

We have run The Lamplighter since I was 5 with my dad being a classically trained chef. We love food & drink & are always looking for new things & to evolve those that are old. We are in the enviable position that our work is our hobby.

I was born into the hospitality industry and have a true passion for every aspect of it with customer service being an absolute focus and to share both mine and my teams passion for food and beverage with our valued guests.

The whole of The Lake District is one giant play ground or so my children tell me. Water sports, extreme sports, a long walk on a beautiful autumn day. The relaxed pace, the stunning scenery, the amazing food and beverage available. Take your pick!
