The Wheatsheaf Inn

In the heart of the picturesque village of Brigsteer, The Wheatsheaf Inn offers superb food, great real ales and a fantastic range of wines. Refurbished with considerable care and attention, the Wheatsheaf is just three miles from the medieval market town of Kendal. Six newly opened cosy bedrooms are situated on site. We are family,walker, cyclist and dog friendly too.

The historic inn is situated at the foot of Scout Scar, with its stunning panoramic views and on the edge of the damson-growing Lyth Valley. Parts of the Wheatsheaf date back to 1762 and it originally was three cottages with a shoeing room for horses. The premises then became an alehouse and it was first licensed in the early 1800s.

Our 6 newly opened bedrooms are all different, offering a choice of doubles, twin or king sized beds depending on the room. Room 4 is our Family room with a pop up single bed, and Room 2 our bunk room is a fun option for either friends or children. The Loft room, Room 6 is a cosy small double with a sloping roof and has a bath. All other rooms have showers.

With carefully selected furnishings, lovely Bath Store toiletries, tea & coffee facilities, and a freshly cooked breakfast to wake up to, you’re sure to feel at home.

We also have a fabulous luxury bunkhouse, 'Lumley Fee' just up the road at Helsington viewpoint. Sleeping up to 20 it is available as a whole for a large group or by the room (each room sleeps up to 4 people.) Check out www.lumleyfeebunkhouse.co.uk.

We look forward to welcoming you!
