The Mardale @ Bampton is a cosy Self-catering Lake District property sleeping up to 14 people. We also offer Bed & Breakfast reservations mid-week which is a popular choice for walkers.
Dating from the early 18th century and recently refurbished by the new owners, the Mardale is tucked away in the pleasant little village of Bampton in the Lowther Valley.
The Mardale @ Bampton has been converted from a Traditional Lakeland Inn into a Bed & Breakfast and self-catering accommodation, whilst still maintaining it’s traditional Inn charm. For larger groups, you have the option of hiring of the whole property for exclusive use with the optional addition of opening the bar to serve your own guests their drinks – we can even order is beer and ales for you!
With exclusive hire, you have the option of catering for yourselves using the new domestic kitchen or for an additional charge we can provide cooked breakfasts for your guests. There is another pub in the village which is an alternative for evening meals if required.
This area, known as the Eastern Fells, is one of the most rural parts of the Lake District National Park and as such it was used as the location for the 80’s cult classic film ‘Withnail & I’.
For Coast to Coasters:
We are the closest accommodation in Bampton to Wainwright’s Coast to Coast route (transfers available). The location saves the 3-mile uphill struggle to Shap, thus shortening the hardest day on the walk. Located near to Haweswater, it makes an excellent base for viewing the golden eagles, plus walking, biking, fishing and other outdoor activities.
Dogs and Children are very welcome at The Mardale.
We are situated 15 minutes drive from Junction 39 of the M6. OS ref 514181 – Postcode CA10 2RQ
