About
Description
The Hare & Hounds is a 17th century coaching Inn & Restaurant nestled in the beautiful hamlet of Bowland Bridge, at the very heart of the Lake District Winster Valley, with stunning views across the surrounding More fells. Perfectly situated, it is within easy reach of all attractions of the National Park and only a 10 minute drive from the market town of Kendal and 3 miles from the shores of Lake Windermere. This cosy Inn is an eclectic mix of old and new, with old pine and black slate floors and roaring log fires creating a relaxed and informal atmosphere. In summer months enjoy a beer or glass of wine on the terrace or in the beer garden which basks in the evening sun with breathtaking views across the valley. Our double and king size en-suite rooms have been lovingly decorated and furnished and are complimented by crisp white bed linen, the fluffiest quilts and pillows, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities, soft towels and the finest toiletries.

Masons Arms is 20-25 mins away up a very steep hill, but only about 10 mins to get back! Wouldn 't recommend doing this at night. There is also a longer circular walk you can do via the Masons Arms. Kerry at the Hare... More
