What people are saying about Blacksmiths Arms


Traditional Old Coaching Inn- Rating 5/5

Lovely location, a warm and welcoming arrival despite the freezing temperatures outside, a pub full of character and charm, we enjoyed the local beer and evening bar food with a great breakfast in the morning, very attentive and friendly hospitality. Well worth a visit.

Relaxing stay - Rating 5/5

It's not often when I travel for business I get to relax as much as I did on this occasion. Very comfortable suite and has good internet which is vital for a business trip. Lovely meals at night and excellent value.Such a peaceful place to stay in this lovely village and the owners of the Blacksmith Arms were welcoming and lovely people. I am looking forward to staying again next time I am working in the area.

We stayed 2 nights in Room 5 on a room+breakfast deal. We are frequent visitors to the Blacksmith's Arms - a family run business where we have always felt "at home". As always, it lived up to expectations! The room was clean, warm and comfortable with views across the village including the aforementioned birds which live at a neighbouring house but appear to have the run of the village. The dining area has a welcoming open fire and meals (we had dinner both nights as well as the two breakfasts) are hearty and well cooked. There are 4 real ales available as well as a range of wines, all sensibly priced. Service was good and always helpful and the total bill for our enjoyable break was very reasonable. Geographically it provides an excellent base for visiting the Lakes, the Solway area and Carlisle. What's not to like?

Great hotel - Rating 5/5

Just had another wonderful overnight stay at the Blacksmiths Arms. Made to feel very welcome & had a lovely meal & a few drinks then off to bed in our own little lodge. Looking forward to our next stay already.

Overnight break - Rating 1/5

Stayed at the Blacksmiths Arms on Saturday night. The room was ready earlier than expected, great news.Clean warm room with everything one would expect. Large walk-in shower. Quick lunch in the bar and explore the area. Open fire in the evening and excellent pub food at reasonable prices. Three excellent hand pulled ales again sensibility priced. What made the stay special though was the really friendly and interesting staff who were genuineand engaging. Brilliant owners.If you want a clean friendly pub stay I can recommend The Blacksmiths Arms. Not pretentious, just in a lovely quiet village in stunning countryside.


Thank you for the great comments about us. You may of by mistake just 1 star instead of the 5 we are used to getting. Hope to see you again soon. Gareth

Lovely little country Pub, a hidden treasure.- Rating 5/5

The Landlord and Landlady were friendly and accommodating, the staff as well. The meals were tasty and filling and the accommodation warm and comfortable and spacious.

Out of this World - Rating 5/5

Friendly hosts and a small well appointed bedroom with a comfortable bed and pillows to die for!! An excellent evening meal and breakfast the following morning. It's easy to see why they have so many certificates of recommendation on display. Have already decided to bring my wife with me when I next visit the area on business.

Delightful stay - Rating 5/5

The Blacksmiths Arms is a charming pub in a pretty village. The hosts were most welcoming, the accommodation was very comfortable and the food was of a high standard. We are only sorry that we had not planned to stay longer.
