The Hare & Hounds is a 17th century coaching Inn nestled in the beautiful hamlet of Bowland Bridge, at the very heart of the Lake District Winster Valley, with stunning views across the surrounding fells. Perfectly situated, it is within easy reach of all attractions of the National Park and only a 10 minute drive from the market town of Kendal and 3 miles from the shores of Lake Windermere.

This cosy Inn has been refurbished recently to create an eclectic mix of old and new, with old pine and black slate floors and roaring log fires creating a relaxed and informal atmosphere. In summer months enjoy a beer or glass of wine on the terrace or in the beer garden which bask in the evening sun with breathtaking views across the valley.

We have an inspired seasonal menu and a daily specials menu to ensure that only the freshest seasonal local produce is used.




We’re really quite keen on beer too with our signature real ale ‘The Hare of the Dog’ brewed by Tirril Brewery. You’ll find it amidst the many real ale pumps on our bar. 

We have a handful of bedrooms which have been lovingly decorated and furnished, each with its own individual style. All bedrooms are ensuite , dressed with either Victorian or contemporary styled bathrooms.
