A boutique charmer in an ancient inn, with a fab bar and restaurant attached.

Rooms at the Drunken Duck offer a real mix of experiences, but all with the benefit of a top-notch gastro-pub on the premises. Contemporary colours and boutique furnishings are par for the course, even in the standard rooms in the inn itself – it’s a 400-year-old building, so these are a bit tight on space, though you’ll never be anything less than comfortable. Other rooms are bigger, some located in a separate building across the courtyard, and most have great views, including across to the fells from the rather stunning open-beamed Garden Room with its own balcony.
