Self Assessed 4 Stars Guest House

Our historic country house and restaurant is situated in the vale of Lorton, within a short drive of several of the Lake District’s most stunning lakes, and ideally located close to both the market town of Cockermouth and the adventure capital Keswick. As well as wonderful bed and breakfast, and complimentary tea and cake on arrival, we offer non-resident evening dining, Sunday lunches and afternoon tea.

Whether you simply want a break away from the hustle & bustle, are visiting us on business, or booking us exclusively for your special wedding or party, we’ll offer you hospitality with a big heart from our very friendly team. Come & wander in the gardens and relax on the terrace with a drink, or take a dip in the hot tub and sauna to unwind.

Our four poster rooms are perfect for a family getaway and can fit up to two extra beds. Some double rooms can also accomodate children but please contact us if you require an extra bed (£15 supplement per bed per night).

Packhorse Cottage, our self-catering accomodation at the foot of Winder Hall's drive, is also available to book, and you can see photos in the gallery here as well. This beautiful cottage is perfect for a break away with family or friends. It sleeps five, although we can accommodate an extra person for a small supplement. Pretty garden and off road parking, plus the chance to use all the facilities of Winder Hall. Apololgies, but we don't allow pets.
