Welcome to the String of Horses; a traditional Coaching Inn set in one of the most beautiful and historic areas of Britain; near the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall; The Lake District and the Scottish Borders. Though acclaimed for its yesteryear ambience; The String of Horses looks after its guests in 21st Century Style.With its oak beams and panelling; open fires and gleaming brassware; it's no wonder the String of Horses has provided a warm welcome to so many visitors from all over the world for more than 350 years. Below you can learn a little of the history of this traditional Cumbrian inn.1659 was perhaps not a particularly good time to establish an inn - with Cromwell but recently dead and his son Richard installed as Lord Protector. Wracked by Civil War and religious conflict; England was neither united nor a kingdom. Even so; merchants still traded; commerce still persisted and people still travelled; stopping off to rest at rural taverns where the ale would refresh; the fayre satisfy; the beds soothe - and a new string of horses could be harnessed to the long-distance stagecoach. Thus was born The String of Horses Inn; a haven for travellers then; and still the same all these centuries later: a place where the ambience of yesteryear combines with the very best of today. Please Note: We are a No-Smoking property. Regrettably; we cannot accept pets. Children welcome. Check-In time: 1400 and Check-Out time: 1000.
