The Britannia Inn

Our clients say...

  • “Great Food/Fantastic Views”

     (October 2013)
  • A comfortable inn aimed squarely at walkers and visitors, situated in a lovely part of the lakes.

     (November 2012)
  • Everything recommends this place! The friendly welcome from the barman as we came in and the warm open fire in the bar.

     (November 2012)
  • I have wanted to stay here since discovering its marvelous food by accident while hiking in the area a few years ago and our experience certainly did not disappoint. Any expectations were easily exceeded and the sudden Indian summer made this weekend perfect.

     (November 2012)
  • Please don't go. The less people know about it the better, they've only got 9 rooms :) Rule Britannia!!

     (February 2012)
  • Absolutely Fantastic -- My family and I (3 generations - grandparents, parents and children from Devon) have been eating at the Britannia for many years whilst holidaying at Langdale and we have never been disappointed...
