entangled between two kingdoms

Penton, Carlisle CA6 5QB
Rooms, Restaurant & Bar


Enjoy views overlooking the Cumbrian countryside and the distant Scottish hills from a quaint window seat or comfy chair in our Story suite. You will find a bath and separate shower, tea and coffee making facilities, wardrobe and dressing table area.

All of our rooms take their name from a Border Reivers clan infamous for raiding and marauding their neighbours. During the reign of Edward I, the kingdoms of England and Scotland went to war, and for the next 300 years the Storeys found themselves entangled in the Border wars between the two kingdoms. They were also notorious active reivers.

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.
