Under the current ownership of Jean and Richard Skelton and their friendly and professional staff the traditions of a warm and friendly welcome, superb food and service continue.

Located in the stunning village of Beetham, The Wheatsheaf is ideally situated for visits to the South Lakes, Sizergh Castle, Holker Hall, Leighton Moss Nature Reserve and many more.

Our Mirror Room for instance can accommodate up to twelve people in style with your own private service. You could also stay in one of our five comfortable en suite bedrooms all with tea and coffee making facilities, TVs and views overlooking the village of Beetham. Private functions, conferences, small weddings, weekend house parties and anniversaries can all be arranged at the Wheatsheaf and we are happy to put bespoke packages together so we can cater for your every need.

Made to feel welcome

When we arrived there was a little mix up of the rooms and keys but the staff soon sorted it and even though we arrived before 2pm all rooms were ready .

All staff very friendly and we were made to feel welcome even to the point of someone knocking on our door at 10 am just to make sure we didn't want breakfast before they cleared away and that it wouldn't be any trouble if we changed our minds . Great service . (It was our fault we went to a wedding the night before and couldn't get our heads off the comfy beds and pillows ) Very nice room and very clean . Even the lady on late lock up was very friendly with a warm welcome when we arrived back near midnight . With others still to return I'm sure she was ready for going home but didn't show it . This is a great location for visiting surrounding areas such as Arnside and Silverdale and the Lakes all very beautiful. We will be back for a longer stay in the near future to sample the good food that the rest of our party already had.
