Winner Best Small Hotel 'Best Places to Stay in Britain 2023'
Times & Sunday Times


Located in the charming, picturesque hamlet of Bowland Bridge, The Hare & Hounds Inn is the quintessential British country pub with a modern point of view. Only three miles from Lake Windermere, our 17th-century tavern offers quick access to all the bustling activities that Windermere, Bowness and Kendal have to offer, yet is nestled amongst the peaceful surroundings of Cartmel Fell.

We serve a variety of drinks, featuring a menu of spirits, select premium gins, draught beers & local cask ales, as well as soft & hot drinks.  The four comfortable, well-appointed, guest rooms (all ensuite) are available to book here.  Our restaurant serves a selection of modern dishes alongside traditional pub classics (book here). The food is sourced regionally, partnering with local producers of high-calibre so we can maximise your experience with us and minimise our impact on the environment.

We hope to see you at The Hare & Hounds Inn, Bowland Bridge, very soon.
