Friendly Pub in the centre of Shap
If you are walking Coast to Coast this is an excellent place to stay as the next leg of the walk starts right opposite the hotel.
The owners are very friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable and we had a lovely meal on the evening and cooked breakfast the following morning.
Stay at Kings Arms
We stayed over for one night after the Haweswater marathon.
The room was much bigger than most B&Bs which was just what we needed. Shower was excellent. Room was clean. Proprietors were very welcoming. Food was basic but good and value for money. Breakfast excellent. Excellent base for east side of the lakes. Very good value for money. Would definitely stay there again.
