A stylish and Japanese-inspired stay at a revamped 17th-century coaching inn near to the Lake District - with breakfast, cream tea and a suite option


Bringing a touch of glamour to the beautiful rural region of Cumbria, this revamped 17th-century coaching inn promises style-savvy guests plenty to get excited about: outstanding wining and dining, gracious hospitality, and plenty of places to curl up and relax. Equally fabulous is its location in Sedbergh - the ancient market town (and designated 'book town') at the foot of the splendid Howgill Fells. There’s also plenty here to inspire outdoorsy types, given that both the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District are right on your doorstep.

The stylish guest rooms and suites offer a seamless mix of sumptuous Japanese-inspired decor, muted colour schemes, and Herdwick and Rough Fell carpets and blankets. The Classic room, Superior room, Luxury room, and Suite all come with snuggle-worthy king-size or super king-size beds dressed with high-quality linens, flatscreen TVs with digital channels, and tea and coffee-making facilities with hand-made mugs by local artist Rebecca Callis. The gorgeous, white-tiled bathrooms in the Superior, Luxury and Suite rooms boast free-standing tubs and glass walls, while all room types come with bespoke toiletries designed exclusively for the hotel by The Sedbergh Soap Co.

Open daily, the excellent restaurant tempts with British, European, and Asian-inspired cuisine - all of which is made with fresh, seasonal, and locally-sourced ingredients (the owners have huge respect for traditional and holistic land management and farming practices and source their meat direct from farms as much as possible). For snacks and bar nibbles, there’s a fabulous beer garden lounge to the rear of the property and directly at the foot of the Howgill Fells (in the summer this is the perfect place to kick back with a well-deserved pint or a pre-dinner aperitif).


At the foot of the splendid Howgill Fells, you’ll be staying in Sedbergh - the small but lively ancient market town where Cumbria and the Yorkshire Dales National Park meet. Must-dos include checking out the interesting cluster of bookshops (new, second-hand, and rarities), browsing in the little boutiques, and lingering in the pubs and cafes. You’ll also be within easy distance of the spectacular Lake District National Park, where highlights include cruising on one of the Ullswater Steamers, visiting the Aira Force waterfall, taking exciting off-road cycle rides, and getting stuck into activities such as rock climbing, fell walking and birdwatching. The Black Bull Inn is five miles from the M6 motorway. Oxenholme station is a 30-minute drive away.
