About the hotel

The Pheasant is a charming old Coaching Inn situated close to Bassenthwaite Lake at the unspoilt, northern end of the Lake District. It is one of the last remaining traditional Cumbrian hostelries with its unique period atmosphere, sense of timelessness and peaceful location. The Pheasant enjoys a well deserved national reputation amongst those who are used to being well cared for in a traditional manner.

The history of The Pheasant stretches back over 500 years. Originally a farm house, it was converted in more recent years (1778) to a popular Alehouse. One of its 19th century regulars was the famous huntsman John Peel. He would often celebrate and recount his exploits in the tap room of The Pheasant now the hotel bar. You cannot escape the sense of being surrounded by history the moment you walk in the door.

Beautiful location

This is a very comfortable inn in a very nice spot.

A lovely pub atmosphere, comfortable lounges with roaring fires, very nice food (we recommend that you book for dinner), excellent welcoming service. The bed was rather too soft and it is a bit pricy for what you get (few hotel-quality services on site) but we knew that when we booked.

Disappointing ?

Stayed here and was not happy, why,room was damp in one corner,cobwebs in corners,bathroom radiator was not working,one of the owners came to have a look, no joy,said to leave hot water running to warm bathroom up??, asked for a room move said they were full up or he would have moved us, checked later on line, and reception, and yes there was a room available,so we assume he could not be bothered to look after guests, decor in room was in need of updating,bathroom decor was awfull, paper peeling of ceiling in a number of places,cobwebs in bedroom in all corners,very poor room.
