DONE ROUTE 1 IN THE HOWGILLS?
HEAD FOR The Black Swan at Ravenstonedale. To be perfectly honest, this absolute treasure of a pub/inn is worth a detour from anywhere in the Lakes. In fact, if you go you may have to stay the night too, to make the most of its gorgeous interior, top-class food, array of ales and welcoming atmosphere. Making it into The Good Pub Guide’s top Cumbrian pubs, and being surrounded by the under-discovered delights of the Howgills, you are guaranteed a trip to remember.
