Set in the heart of Pooley Bridge close to the shores of Ullswater, the Sun Inn offers comfortable en-suite accommodation along with home cooked meals and cask ale.
The Inn was converted from a row of cottages in the 1700s by the original proprietor Edward Richardson. Since then the Inn has changed hands several times, and was taken over in May 2010 by John & Jane McGuire.
The Sun is a family run establishment. Sunny by name and by nature, this is one of the most friendly and cheery hostelries in the region. It is a sizeable whitewashed building with grey framed windows, which in summer are draped with vibrantly coloured hanging baskets. Inside, the décor is simple and warm with low beamed ceilings, wooden tables and chairs and wood panelled walls and bar.
