This is a 5-star AA rated guest house property with two rosette awards for the restaurant. All rooms have LCD TVs, free Wi-Fi and traditional Cumbrian biscuits. The private bathrooms feature Bath House toiletries.

    Everything about the Sun Inn was lovely! A small, old world hotel that was clean, inviting and welcoming.

    Fabulous historic but nicely appointed boutique hotel. Excellent food and lovely welcoming and helpful staff, especially Isaac and Louise. Great pint of Hawkshead Bitter too. Handy for the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales.

    The Hotel is wonderful and an old property with beautiful rustic beams and slanting old floors - extremely characterful - love it and stayed many times here. Extremely dog friendly they welcome our beloved pets as much as us.
