About Us

Joan and Paul invite you to stay with them at the Stork Hotel in Rowrah, Cumbria and enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding Lakeland fells.

Only a few minutes drive to the village of Ennerdale Bridge, the first stop on Wainwrights Coast to Coast Walk, and within 30 minutes drive to Loweswater, Buttermere, Derwent Water or the towns of Cockermouth, Keswick, Whitehaven and Workington; We are ideally placed for Coast to Coast walkers and business professionals working within at Sellafield or West Lakes Science and Technology Park. We're also the closest accommodation to the Rowrah Karting Track, where famous F1 drivers such as Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button started their successful careers, and are located on the C2C Cycle Route (Whitehaven to Sunderland).

For over sixteen years we have proudly looked after visitors to the English Lake District, with guests from all over the World, and many of them staying more than once due to our warm Cumbrian welcome! Our guests often comment on the quietness and beauty of the surrounding area, and visit specifically for the enjoyable unspoiled walks.

We serve traditional home cooked food, using the very best fresh local produce where possible. We offer an extensive main menu, containing a great range of pub classics including steak pie and Cumberland sausage. We also offer a pack lunch menu with a variety of sandwiches.
