Fosters or Forsters

Penton, Carlisle CA6 5QB
Rooms, Restaurant & Bar


You can enjoy views of both the Cumbrian countryside and the distant Scottish hills from a window Seat in our Foster suite. You will find a shower, tea and coffee making facilities, wardrobe, dressing table and comfy chair. 

All of our rooms take their name from a Border Reivers clan infamous for raiding and marauding their neighbours. The Fosters or Forsters were predominantly an English family distributed over much of the Border with Scotland. They indulged in occasional reiving and there are records of a number of Forsters being hanged for being caught.

Our bedroom interiors have taken inspiration from the stunning landscape surrounding the inn with soft organic tones and hints of natural textures such as wood, slate, wool and tweed blended with luxurious Egyptian cotton for the highest levels of comfort and style.

There are touches of indulgence to make your stay as special as possible from fresh flowers to fluffy towels and always a treat out of our kitchen.
