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.

Homely B&B

This B&B has wonderful owners who are friendly and helpful with local recommendations for food.

The room we stayed in was a spacious double en-suite which overlooked the parking area cum front garden. There were facilities in the room for making tea or coffee.

We paid extra for a cooked breakfast which was lovely and Claire even provided gluten free bread. The room was reasonably clean but there was some dust and cobwebs - the blind in the bathroom was particularly dusty, and there were a few hairs in the bathroom that didn't belong to us. The dining area was in need of a dust too and there was fluff on the floor next to our table. There was audible noise from other rooms and I had to use earplugs to get to sleep as I could hear the TV in the room next door. The mattress was firm and slightly uncomfortable......and the bed was very squeaky....... The door was locked with a deadlock key rather than an individually cut key, this was the same on all rooms so we didn't dare leave any valuables in our room after checking in and going back out. I wasn't too happy to find children kicking a football around next to my car when we left to get tea after checking in. Overall this is a charming little B&B with lovely owners and perfectly adequate for an overnight stop if you bring your ear plugs. It is more like staying in someone's house for the night compared to the B&B's we've stayed at before.

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.
