Our Inspector's view

The Queens head is part of the Askham collection which includes the eponymous hall and the George and Dragon. The historical estate is impressive and guests can visit Lowther Castle nearby. This Inn sits on the main street through a village which has escaped modernisation in a lot of ways and so remains a charming destination. Guests can enjoy beautiful public rooms which bridge the gap of traditional character as an Inn and as a contemporary dining destination serving imaginative cuisine rooted in the local area; indeed much of the produce is home grown. Bedrooms are all spacious, luxuriously appointed and well equipped, but eclectic in style.

About the area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
