After a fell walk or forest ramble, The Wateredge Inn is a welcoming place to come for a glass of Cumbria’s finest and the very best of views.

Taking top picks for its shoreside alfresco terrace, there’s plenty of room to spread out and take in the sights.

Inside, take a seat at well-distanced tables within this atmospheric Lakeland inn.

Speciality gins and cocktails to have waterside is an experience not to be missed.
