#1 of 4 Speciality lodging in Cartmel
An idyllic country inn perched on the fellside overlooking the Winster Valley. The pub offers a delicious menu served daily, a great range of cask and bottled beers, superb wine list all in the most beautiful setting. Roaring log fires, low beamed ceilings and quirky seating areas welcome you in the colder months. The large outdoor seated terrace enables you to soak up the amazing views whilst enjoying a relaxing drink, fab food, or both! If you can stick around, we have two lovely cottages and five double suites to base yourself whilst enjoying the delights of the inn and it's surrounding vistas. Dogs are welcome in the bar area, and we also have some dog friendly accommodation too.

Strong recommendation to dine here and I now know why. It’s everyone’s idea of the classic Lakeland pub,in an idyllic location. The fish pie with cheesy mash crust and the Sunday beef roast were both excellent. Service was friendly,efficient and very welcoming. Robinson’s beer plus a guest ale. Don’t miss a visit to this excellent hostelry.

We have stayed many times at the Masons and in Lyth. This time it was a 2 night stay but on arrival we had an initial disappointment as the open fire was not made up. We were told this was done only on request. This is untrue. Their web site at the time of booking and the cottage manual clearly states that the open fire is made up on the first day “for your enjoyment”. Our booking confirmation showed no mention that this had to be requested. Our main “disaster” was that the inter-connecting door between Lyth and the adjoining cottage was in an open unlockable state giving access from both sides and directly into a bedroom probably used for children to sleep (bunk beds). We stated it was our intention not to stay which forced us to seek alternative accommodation late that day as a drive back home in darkness was an unsafe option. We were greatly disappointed and upset. We spoke to Alison, the manager, who was very apologetic and understanding. We were finally assured that nobody would be staying the first night in the adjoining cottage and we were offered a change of room for the second night with acceptable compensation. This impacted on our expectations and arrangements. We can only say finally, that we booked Lyth and didn't get the full experience of our booking and wish all this never happened. To be fair we did have a meal in the restaurant on the first night and found the food and service was excellent. We felt that the the Manager and staff rescued the situation and based on that, hope to return in the future. Would have been very good rating but for the terrible initial experience

We went to the Mason's Arms at Cartmel Fell, primarily to get an overall taste for hopefully a dinner reservation at a later date. It must be said that booking is advisable . The location is magnificent with majestic views looking over the Lyth valley. Inside you find a classic country pub with character. The lunch menu was well balanced and although not exhaustive it gave enough variation, and a specials board was on offer as well. The selection of craft beers was a delight and to a discerning beer lover you'd be hard pressed yo be disappointed. The staff were very polite and attentive. John the assistant manager was very helpful and knowledgeable. Great attention to the customer and would highly recommend a visit.

I would not have known about this place if it hadn't been mentioned in a review by the Telegraph. What a place. Words don't do it justice. The location, the staff, quality of food, accommodation, everything about this place was very good. The only downside is we only stayed 2 nights. I known when we return to the area this is where we will stay and hopefully get the Cartmel Fell suite again.
