Property Information

The Mardale is a traditional Lakeland Inn offering 4 en-suite double or twin bedrooms as well as a family room for 6 guests. A full bar and evening meal service is available.

Nestled in the Lowther Valley, just 5 miles from Shap, we have 4 double/twin en-suite bedrooms and a family ensuite room which accommodates six people. This area, known as the Eastern Fells, is one of the most rural parts of the Lake District National Park and as such it was used as the location for the 80’s cult classic film ‘Withnail & I’. We are situated 15 minutes drive from Junction 39 of the M6. OS ref 514181 – Postcode CA10 2RQ

Coast 2 Coast Accommodation:
We're ideally situated for walkers tackling the Coast2Coast Walk. Our location saves the 3-mile uphill struggle to Shap, thus shortening the hardest day on the walk.
So that we don't send out a rescue party if you're arriving late, it would be helpful if you could let us know (when possible) what time you aim to arrive by emailing or calling 01931-713244. 

Evening Meals:
Superb evenings meals are available for guests and non-residents in the bar on the ground floor. All our dishes are prepared using fresh local produce by our talented Chef Johnnie and his team. Whilst not essential, if you are a group of five or more, we would be most grateful if you could call ahead to reserve a table so we can be sure to seat you all together at a convenient time. We can cater for most dietary requirements so please feel free to have a chat to Chef if you have specific requirements.

Dogs and Children are very welcome at The Mardale.
