Our View

The Wateredge Inn was converted from two 17th-century fishermen's cottages, and now offers a stylish bar and restaurant. With large gardens and plenty of seating running down to the lakeshore, the inn has been run by the same family for over 30 years. The lunch menu offers sandwiches, salads and pub classics. Meanwhile the dinner menu has choices ranging from Cumberland sausage with mash, apple sauce and a rich red wine and root vegetable onion gravy; to Wateredge fish pie with salmon, prawns, cod and smoked haddock in a rich leek and tarragon cream, topped with creamy parmesan mashed potato. Specials and a children’s menu are also available.

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.
