Accommodation Description:

Dating from around 1659, this traditional coaching inn is set in a quiet country village only 10 minutes from Carlisle and junction 43 of the M6 motorway. String of Horses lies in the middle of one of the most beautiful and historic areas of Britain: near Hadrians Wall, the Lake District and the Scottish borders. With its oak beams and panelling, open fires and gleaming brassware, the String of Horses has welcomed visitors from all over the world for more than 350 years.
