About Us

The Punch Bowl is a family friendly, family run, fully refurbished country inn.

We are well situated for a visit to the Lake District.

Our informal public restaurant and luxurious en suite guest rooms will delight, as will our specialty coffees, ales and traditional menus. 

Whether it be a relaxing break away from home or a more energetic walking, climbing or cycling trip.
Being just 3 miles from the M6 and even closer to Kendal, Windermere is about a 15 minute drive and Ambleside a further 10 mins. Oxenholme main line train station is just over a mile away. 

We are perfectly placed at the gateway to the lakes whatever the reason for your trip.
We have a friendly team here (mostly family), and we really appreciate how lucky we are to live and work in such a beautiful part of the world, so feel free to ask any questions during your visit. If we don’t know the answer we’ll probably know a chap who does!

What People Are Saying

Spent two nights here while visiting the Open at Birkdale. Great welcome, great breakfast and homemade Gingerbread Vodka to die for!! Lovely room with everything you could need plus good strong shower – clean with a comfy bed

Stayed here for two nights and had an enjoyable stay. Really good location, very central. Near shops and both theatres. Our room was very nice, spacious and had comfortable bed. The en suite seem quite new. Breakfast was very good and plenty of it. We also enjoyed our evening meal. We found the staff friendly and polite. Will stay here again.
