The famous Kirkstile Inn, Loweswater is situated in a magical place, nestling amongst the stunning fells in the heart of the North West Lake District just a short distance from the Lakes of Loweswater and Crummock Water.

Nestling between Loweswater and Crummock Water in the English Lake District, the Kirkstile Inn has been providing food and shelter for some four hundred years.

The attractions for the early visitors in the sixteenth century remain today. The beauty that entranced the poets and painters remains unspoilt: the beck meandering through the meadow with the old oak trees fringing its banks, Melbreak towering impressively above, and stretching as far as the eye can see the fells, lakes and woods of Cumbria.

Inside are the same low beamed rooms with welcoming open fires, good food, willing and friendly service and the same warm hospitality that has always characterised a good English Inn.

The immediate countryside is ideal for walking, climbing, boating and fishing and after the exertions of a busy day the Kirkstile Inn provides the enjoyment of a good dinner and pleasant company over a drink.
