An amazing country Inn for both feet and paws!
The Cuckoo Brow is the most beautiful Inn, in the most beautiful place, and has staff to match. We have had numerous stays now, every one as good and better than the last. It is fantastic for anyone wanting a great place to take your dog with you, and for your dog to be welcomed with open arms, there isn’t a bad word we have for the Cuckoo Brow. The rooms are spotless, the food is truly amazing, the menu is fantastic with seasonal local daily specials and a fabulous chef who is so concerned for each persons satisfaction, he calls at every table to make sure everything is ok, it’s the little things that make such a difference to a memorable stay.

Great hotel in a beautiful location.
This little out of the way hotel is truly special. It was my husbands 50th birthday and we have been touring all week but the date of his actual birthday coincided with our stay at the Cuckoo Brow. Anyway the Chef got wind of this and decorated a lovely cake for my hubby adorned with personal greetings, really really nice plus the food is amazing, the room though quite small was spotless and the ambience of the place was first class. I highly recommend this hotel.

Very Good8.0
Very nice location and setting. The service unfortunately during breakfast times was a little awkward, a couple of the waitresses did not understand English very well, and mistook our order (twice), plus ignored while waiting to be served. However, main staff were friendly and helpful. Great for children dogs, but be aware that all corridor noise can be heard through the walls and floor!!!

Fantastic Stay for Family of 4 Plus Dog!
Absolutely fantastic stay in the heart of the Lake District. We stayed for 2 nights, with two children and a dog. The room was perfect, the breakfast options were amazing, and the staff was the best! Great trekking trails right from the hotels, awesome dag-friendly environment, and a great bar and food for dining...what more could you want? Thanks Cuckoo Brow Inn!
