Brook House Inn


Owned and run by the Thornley Family since the last century, Brook House offers you the opportunity to stay in hotel style bedrooms with en-suite baths in all rooms whilst having the convenience of a real Lake District pub with real ales and a fantastic malt whisky collection. Friendly staff with local knowledge help make your stay just right. Oh and did I mention the 180 whiskies to try? It will take a few visits to Eskdale to sample them all!
