Welcome to the Pennington Hotel

The Pennington Hotel was extensively refurbished early in the 21st century and combines modern comfort with traditional good food and drink in a historic setting in the heart of Ravenglass village, just a stone's throw from the seaside, a mile from Muncaster Castle and close to the Lake District fells.

With 22 well-appointed ensuite letting rooms, this hotel and award-winning Estuary Bar and Grill provide friendly service from local staff and quality affordable food using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

You're assured of an award-winning warm welcome at the Pennington, where we're also one of West Cumbria's CAMRA inns so you can sample the quality and range of our real ales.

The Pennington is an historic inn with a contemporary interior, offering well-appointed accommodation and fine food from quality local ingredients just a stone's throw from the seaside, the Western Lake District fells and Muncaster Castle.

In August we were nominated for an Esther Award. We raised nearly £1500 for the NSPCC via our delicious VE Day Afternoon Teas. Thank you to everyone who bought and enjoyed them too!

"You, Isla and your team not only created delicious teas – a treat at a time when few treats are available – but brought in new volunteers who could use your hospitality skills to support us, and became a news story which spread awareness for us. A wonderful achievement in so many different ways.

How did we come to this decision?

Our panel of judges – Peter Wanless, previous winner Jacky Wood and two young people, Molly and Rachel – had the difficult task of shortlisting our 58 fantastic nominations down to 12.
I’ve had the pleasure to read all our shortlisted nominations and I’ve been so impressed by the ingenuity, the creativity and the refusal to admit defeat all these nominees have shown that I decided that all shortlisted are winners – you should feel very proud!"

Located in Ravenglass, the only seaside village in the Lake District National Park
