Take your foot off the pedal and just breathe - fresh air like you’ve never tasted before, fresh food, fresh beer and a fresh approach at the Woolpack Inn, nestled at the top of one of England’s most beautiful valleys. Harry and Paddington Berger – previously of the Boot Inn – are the new owners, and intend to return the Inn to its former glory.
Cupped amongst England’s highest mountains the Boot Inn is ideally located for those seeking rest, relaxation and refreshment either before or after voyages of adventure or exploration. The Boot Inn itself dates back to at least the 17th century. Refurbished and sensitively renovated, it retains much of its historic character and charm. Quality, fresh, locally sourced home-cooked food is the core of our ethos alongside clean and comfortable accommodation all at sensible prices. A varied cellar of well-kept ales, wines and spirits with friendly and professional service is enhanced by a cosy bar complete with log fire or a spacious conservatory with stunning views. A lovely garden to enjoy when the weather allows completes the picture. Of course, dogs and children are welcome too.
