    Say hello to summer and take advantage of a sizzling hot deal at Ullswater's Brackenrigg Inn. Set amidst stunning Lake District scenery, our 18th Century Inn can be counted amongst the last few remaining traditional free houses in the English Lakes. With an unrivalled setting that boasts spectacular views of elegant Ullswater this charming Lake District retreat retains all the values of a traditional coaching Inn. The general quality of the facilities is, of course, what one should expect from an AA 3-Star Inn. Its old worldly charm and individual character is emphasised in each of its 17 bedrooms, all of which are en suite and we offer a flexible range of rooms, from affordable standard rooms to superior rooms & suites ideal for small groups and families. A comprehensive menu offers an array of locally sourced, seasonal dishes cooked fresh on the premises by a resident team of chefs under the guidance of chef patron, Shaun Dixon. An abundance of well-chosen wines, which can be served by the glass, six real Cumbrian ales which regularly include Tirrel, Dent, Coniston, Corby and our own Brackenrigg draft, and a warm welcome contribute to the Brackenrigg Inn’s hostelry image and make it one of the Lake District’s best kept secrets.
