The Woolpack Inn is in the heart of Eskdale in the Lake District National Park and our location is stunning - at the top of one of England’s most dramatic valleys, and the bottom of one of its most exciting roads – Hardknott Pass.

One of Cumbria’s most historic inns, we’re lovingly restoring and refurbishing the Woolpack to create a relaxed and welcoming pub, filled with great ales, hearty food, lots of laughter and a few surprises.

We look forward to welcoming you, your family, friends and dogs very soon.
