Kirkstile Inn in the English Lake District (Pet and Family Friendly)

Kirkstile inn is a cosy 16th-century inn with rustic quarters, plus a fireside pub, a beer garden and free breakfast.

Nestling between Loweswater and Crummock Water in the heart of the English Lake District, the Kirkstile Inn has been providing food and shelter for over 100 years. So why not get away from the modern world and enjoy a stress free zone?

Cosy, comfortable rooms with fantastic views, great local produce turned into traditional pub food or seasonal specials. Own brewed ales, including the legendary award winning Loweswater Gold.

The English Lake District doesn’t lose its charm even in winter. If you are a fell-trekker, thrill-seeker or a food fanatic, then look no further. The Lake District has got it all. People think that the Lake District is endowed with an abundance of lakes but there is only one major true lake- Bassenthwaite Lake. The rest are meres, tarns and bodies of water.
