The Punchbowl Inn

4Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
Askham, Penrith, CA10 2PF
The Eighteenth Century Punchbowl Inn is a well-furnished establishment, which in past times was a farm and orchard. The beams here at the Punchbowl have splits in which coins are once forced 'for luck'. Local tradition states that a wish will be granted for each of the coins so treated.

Located in Askham, we are a Restaurant, Pub and Bed & Breakfast located in the picture postcard village of Askham. We offer Twin and Double Rooms all En-suite and would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to escape the mundane pressures and stress of everyday life and enjoy a wonderful break with us in this picturesque region. We also have plenty of colouring books, board games, cards and dominoes to keep the whole family occupied.

Dominated by its spacious and traditional bar with open fires and original timber ceiling we offer fresh home-cooked, local food coupled with a fine selection of real ales, wines, spirits and whiskeys. Catering for Vegetarians, and Gluten Free Celiac meals, we serve food from 12 midday straight through to 9pm every day and have a constantly changing specials board offering more upmarket gourmet meals. Not to mention our Sunday Roast served every Sunday between 12-9pm.

Askham is one of the most attractive villages in the former county of Westmorland, about 4 miles south of Penrith. It contains many whitewashed cottages either side of the two village greens and adjoins the River Lowther making it the perfect spot for Fly Fishing - 100 yards from the River Lowther, the 'jewel in the crown' of the Eden system. We also have access to boats on Ullswater for those anglers with an interest in 'loch style' fishing. We can arrange your day tickets for you as well as Fishing Tuition for all levels of expertise.

Whilst in the village why not take advantage of the outdoor heated swimming pools less than 5 minutes walk away. Askham has two outdoor pools, one for small people and one 20 metres long with a qualified lifeguard on duty. Surrounded by half an acre of green, space bordered by trees and a kiosk selling snacks and ice-creams, this is a perfect spot for picnics and catching the rays of sunshine that our summers bring.

With Askham Hall Gardens opposite us and just a short 10-15 minute walk from Lowther Castle - the sandstone remains of a romantic Castle. 130 acres of once grand gardens undergoing loving restoration. Woods to wander. Wildlife to keep an eye open for. Incredible views of Lakeland fells. Lowther is unique, slightly eccentric and special. With plenty to explore in the immediate area, follow your nose, take away your own memories. Nobody ever gets lost because the magnificent Castle turrets are visible from everywhere.

Here at the Punchbowl we believe that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Thus, our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is building from repeat customers and referrals.
