The Inn Collection Group aims to combine real beer, great food, and comfortable rooms within each of its venues across the north of England, which is why we put such a focus on combining all three at our establishments. Our experience suggests that the best way to relax and unwind is to stay at a convenient inn where you can eat, drink, and sleep without having to travel to and from different places; everything you need is in one convenient location, so travelling is minimised and your enjoyment is maximised.

This popular country inn sits just off of Windermere, the UK’s largest lake, which makes for the ideal place to soak in some natural scenery and relax, unwind, and forget about your busy life back in the city for the weekend.

There is parking available at both the Waterhead rooms and the Lakehouse rooms (located opposite The Waterhead Inn), please note that there is a slight incline to access the Lakehouse rooms so may not be suitable for people with mobility constraints.

Our dog friendly rooms extend a warm welcome to four-legged friends too, meaning you’ll never have to leave your canine behind! Simply add this option during the booking process and enjoy a wonderful stay with your dog by your side (£15 per dog per night).

Please note, images showcase room types as accurately as possible, however rooms do slightly vary. Contact our central reservations team on 0191 580 3610 for more information.
