Often described as the best campsite bar in Britain, the atmosphere in this building is without doubt, unique! To many the bar represents a great place to swap stories and tales about the day’s events.
The original building was erected in 1648 as an agricultural barn. It is attached to the farmhouse in the traditional Cumbrian Long barn style. The barn was rebuilt in 1752. The Barn was converted into a bar in 1963. Little has been changed to the main structure since the original conversion.
Young children have their own room upstairs with a playhouse and soft play centre. Older children (and adults!) can play on the pool table. Adjacent to the bar there is another games room with table football and air hockey.Recent work includes a complete new Westmorland slate roof which boasts Scandinavian levels of thermal insulation, a new sandstone flag floor and carbon neutral heating. Life has never been as warm!
