We booked the Fat Lamb at fairly short notice for a weekend away walking. It’s a great base for the Howgill Fells, which we’ve seen from a distance a number of times (on the way the Lake District and walking the Coast to Coast) but only just got round to visiting. The Fat Lamb is a great base, offering comfortable and welcoming accommodation with good food and good beer.
Room was too small has no where to put stuff, there is a chunky cupboard in the room occupying too much space and not very useful. And the room is above the pub kitchen with loud noisy fan outside the window and smell from the kitchen, it was very hot in summer time due to kitchen below. Breakfast was average with grumpy staff service.
Good location with friendly staff
Decor super tired
Lovely clean and friendly staff
We arrived on foot in the rain but were welcomed regardless of our state! Kind staff took our wettest gear to the drying room so we were good to set off the next day. We loved the quirky classic car (and other retro) memorabilia, which may say something about our age, too. sadly we didn't get to explore the nature reserve nor see the local area in good conditions because of the weather, but we'll come back when there's a better forecast!
When you stay at Fat Lamb Country Inn in Kirkby Stephen, you'll be 1 minutes by foot from Yorkshire Dales National Park. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
