'Located in northwest England, the English Lake District is a mountainous area, whose valleys have been modelled by glaciers in the Ice Age and subsequently shaped by an agro-pastoral land-use system characterized by fields enclosed by walls. The combined work of nature and human activity has produced a harmonious landscape in which the mountains are mirrored in the lakes. Grand houses, gardens and parks have been purposely created to enhance the beauty of this landscape. This landscape was greatly appreciated from the 18th century onwards by the Picturesque and later Romantic movements, which celebrated it in paintings, drawings and words. It also inspired an awareness of the importance of beautiful landscapes and triggered early efforts to preserve them.'

We love the Lake District. But sometime you just wish there was somewhere to go for drinks that has just a hint of urban glamour, a contemporary edge. Well now there is.
At the Lyth Valley Country Inn you get the very best of both worlds – the finest ales (thanks to our own Winster Valley Brewery), the best in wines from around the world and an expertly mixed cocktail or two, together with a stunning Lakeland location and mesmerising views.
At right at the centre of it all is our beautiful, imposing sculpted French oak bar. Come early and grab the cosy booth with friends or try our stunning layered oak bench. Or just take yourself out onto the raised deck area and drink in the views.
