Welcome to the Pennington Hotel in Ravenglass

We're delighted to hear we've been awarded CAMRA West Cumbria's Pub of the Season Autumn 2016 for innovation and the quality and range of our real ales.           CAMRA West Cumbria

Please note! Our restaurant is closed for two weeks, reopening 2nd December. Please bear with us, while we refit and refurbish the Estuary Restaurant. For lunch or dinner, can we recommend our sister inn the Inn At Ravenglass, just a step along the street? Booking recommended.

The Pennington combines contemporary design and traditional values in a historic setting, just a stone's throw from the seaside, the Lake District hills and Muncaster Castle.

This 3* property provides friendly service complemented by well-appointed accommodation and quality affordable food using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

  • 21 luxury bedrooms, many with estuary views, including our bridal suite and family rooms.
  • Quality teas, coffees and homemade cakes served throughout the day.
  • Great local food in the bar and restaurant from our Estuary Bar & Grill menu  (dogs and families are welcome!). See our lunch menu too.
  • Free wi-fi access.
  • Courtyard patio - perfect for alfresco coffee and cake or pre-dinner drinks.

A Pennington Christmas & New Year


It's Christmas Party time! From 1st December every day through to the 23rd and with the hotel dressed for Christmas, prebooked groups of any size can enjoy our Christmas Party Menu. This is available daily lunchtime and evening and is a great way to start Christmas early with family, friends and colleagues - give us a call to book.

Booking is open for our enduringly popular Christmas Day Lunch. Served at 12.30pm on the 25th, relax and enjoy your choice of the traditional fare or Chef's festive alternatives - there's something to suit all on our menu but call us soon to book.  

How are you seeing in the New Year? How about a New Year's Eve Gala Dinner with Chef Helen's fabulous Cumbrian Tasting Menu, finished off by a glass of bubbly to toast in 2017? And why not make a break of it with our New Year accommodation package at £210 for two, including the dinner and complete with a comfortably-timed New Year's Day brunch? A sell-out every year - booking essential.

We will be offering our usual weekend B&B special offer prices from 26th Dec to the 30th, so if you're looking for a Lake District break over the holidays, you won't find better value. £180 for two nights or a fantastic £200 for three nights, based on two sharing! Call us to book this rate.
