About the hotel

The “Rebels Hide” offers the facilities of high quality new build accommodation, in a traditional setting of historical significance. We offer a range of rooms and a self contained apartment. The Rebels Hide can be booked on a self catering basis ideal for wedding guest groups and other adventure activity groups.

5 minutes from Askham Hall. The property faces onto the site of the last battle fought on English Soil where members of the McPherson Clan lay buried beneath what is known locally as the rebels tree. The Hide is on the doorstep of the Lakes and only five minutes away from what we consider to be the finest lake, Lake Ullswater. It provides an ideal base to explore some of Lakelands picturesque villages and indeed the less well known but equally lovely Eden Valley. It is an ideal location for cyclists, climbers, walkers, sailors, and sight seeing. The historic village of Clifton has one of the finest Lakeland Inns in Cumbria serving excellent beers and wines and fine cuisine. It is a couple of staggering minutes away from the hide. The Rebels Hide offers a more imaginative approach to Bed and Breakfast with three rooms available, offering a variety of choices dependent on price and personal requirements. In addition we have close links with Edinburgh and the highlands and Islands of Bonnie Scotland for those wishing to head further North. We are an ideal and unique “travellers rest” for those travelling North to South, South to the North, or East to West only five minutes from the M6 motorway, A66 and situated just off the A6. The Rebels Hide is situated at the very end of the historic village of Clifton, five miles from the equally historic market town of Penrith, and only five miles from Lake Ullswater. This makes it the perfect setting for trips into Lakeland or the Eden Valley. The area has Lakes, Mountains, castles, historic houses, gardens and many other tourist attractions and places of interest.

awesome "glamping" experience

We stayed in the bears head for one night on our way to a wedding.

The cabin was really nice, cosy, warm, clean, quaint...the description on the website was very accurate. It was really nice at night with the fairy lights outside, and in the morning we woke up to seeing the ducks and ducklings on the pond. Breakfast was delicious, we just had the continental, but there was a very good selection, from cereal, toast, croissants' , fruit, malt loaf, they even made my partner fresh porridge😊 the host was really friendly and helpful, gave us directions to different places to see and eat, and let me give her 3 Siamese cats some treats before we left lol. I would deff recommend this to anyone looking for a nice short break, its nothing fancy, but it doesn't claim to be. Its a nice warm comfy bed in the countryside with really nice views and a friendly host. We had a great time, and are hoping to stay there again in the summer with the dog when we visit friends.

Very cramped room.

Floor in en suite needs attention. For our needs ( sleep only) it was adequate and near to the places we wanted to visit.

In 5 years of business, this is the first time the room has been described as 'cramped', especially considering it is usually booked for 4 people and on this occasion, there were only 3. The ensuite floor has become 'spongy' underneath but is neither visible nor dangerous.
