Signed, Sealed Delivered: The Old Posting House
With idyllic Lakes, striking coastline and the flurry of industry just a stone’s throw away, The Old Posting House is an ideal base for a trip to West Cumbria.
Situated on the edge of the Lake District, The Old Posting House is just three miles from the charming market town of Cockermouth and six miles from the stunning and hugely popular lakes of Loweswater and Crummock.
This 400 year old coaching inn, in the village of Deanscales, is not only a popular eating and drinking house, it also boasts six letting bedrooms. All en-suite, the rooms are decorated to a high standard and feature flat screen tvs, free wifi and tea and coffee making facilities, to make your stay as special as possible. Put your feet up, make yourself at home and enjoy the views of the rolling fields and (hopefully) blue skies outside.
The rooms are designed to cater for everyone, whether your stay is for business or pleasure. Just a short commute away from Cockermouth, Whitehaven, Workington and Sellafield, The Old Posting House is ideally situated for those travelling to the area on business. Equally, however, they are in close proximity for exploring the Lake District, whether that’s walking in the fells, cycling in Whinlatter Forest or sailing on Derwentwater. It’s all on the doorstep.
Each morning, tuck into a full English breakfast, included in the room rate, to set you up for a day on the fells. And after a long day at work or out exploring, the cosy bar and restaurant areas are perfect for a relaxing evening meal and a pint of local ale or glass of wine.
The traditional pub still boasts many of the original features, including the original post boxes protected by English Heritage. These, along with the beamed ceilings and period features which have been carefully preserved, make it a truly unique place to stay.
Putting a contemporary twist on the traditional, the fully refurbished bar and restaurant features exposed bricks, oak tables and charming furnishings, offering a welcoming place to eat and drink. Soak up the warm and friendly ambience and choose from traditional home-cooked food, cask ales, daily specials and a wide selection of gins, malts and wine. Food is served every evening from 6pm – 9pm, and lunch is served from Thursday – Sunday from 12pm – 2pm.
Dogs are also welcome to stay in all of the bedrooms and are allowed in the bar area, for anyone who is planning on bringing their pooch to stay. After all, the Lake District is a paradise for four-legged friends, it would be a shame to have to leave them at home.
