* * * The Old Posting House is now under new management! * * *

Terry and Nicola moved in on the 7th July 2017 and spent the next two weeks refurbishing the exterior and interior. The web-site has taken a bit of a back seat (so much to do!), but will be updated in the coming weeks with new photos and the new menu.

A 400-year-old coaching inn, just 3.6 miles from Cockermouth, the Old Posting House offers traditional bed and breakfast accommodation, views of the Fells, free Wi-Fi and free on-site parking.

The rooms feature flat-screen TVs and king-size beds. All rooms have an en suite bathroom with a shower.

The restaurant serves traditional British dishes, including a full roast Sunday lunch. The bar serves real ales and local beers as well as wines and spirits.

Period features including the old post boxes and beamed ceilings have been carefully preserved.

The Old Posting House guest house is 10 minutes from Lowes Water and 25 minutes from Keswick and Derwent Water. The seaside is a 20-minute drive from the inn.


Good Food is served from 12 – 2pm and 6.30pm – 9.30pm. Our Sunday Lunch menu is excellent value at only £12.50 for 3 courses.

The first Christmas we had away from home, we stayed for 3 nights from Christmas eve and had the fabulous Christmas dinner, Mick and Graham were great hosts very friendly and welcoming. Our room was extremely clean and very comfortable with lovely furnishings and brilliant views. The food was to die for some of the best food we have had in a long time.We will definitely be returning to the Old Posting House and would recommend to anyone.Thank you for making our Christmas special.
