Pentonbridge Inn

UK England North West England Cumbria

The Pentonbridge Inn is less than a mile from Liddle Water, whose meandering course marks the England-Scotland border. The western extremity of Kielder Forest Park lies just a couple of miles east of this nine-room property with a reputation for serving well-presented, flavourful British food that warrants an overnight stay to indulge. The inn has been expanded into a stylish food-led business whose elegant bedroom décor makes use of tweed, wood and slate to reinforce its location in Cumbria’s countryside. Cushioned seats on window ledges in some of the rooms offer views of the surrounding landscape. Egyptian cotton bedding and modern bathroom fittings bring a hint of luxury.

Each of the bedrooms bears the name of a local family – border reivers who long ago rustled livestock and conducted cross-border raids. Staying means you’re welcome to visit nearby Netherby Hall, whose owners redeveloped and modernised the Pentonbridge Inn from a country pub in which farmers would gather to catch up over a pint or two. The country house is less than 10 minutes’ drive away and encompasses a pele tower that once provided protection from raiders while its walled garden supplies vegetables and herbs prepared in the inn’s highly regarded kitchen.

Locally sourced meat and fish also feature on an impressive menu with suggested wine pairings. Chic and airy, the bar and dining room feature exposed honey-coloured stonework around the fireplaces.

This is a pet-friendly property and dogs are welcome to stay in the three bedrooms of the converted barn.
