Situated in the South Lakes on the outskirts of the charming village of Haverthwaite, the family-run Rusland Pool Hotel is a truly delightful venue. It’s idyllic location in the Lake District National Park makes it an excellent choice if you’re looking for a base from which to explore the region and its wonderful lakes and fells.
A warm welcome awaits you in the bar, full of character with plenty of mellow wood, beams, soft lighting and a cosy log burner for those cooler months. Diners can relax and enjoy the ambience here or choose the more contemporary conservatory area which overlooks an attractive patio and gardens with ample seating, much enjoyed in the summer.
