The Sportsman’s Inn


Situated close to the head of the dale and enjoying some of the finest views in Dentdale, The Sportsman’s is an unspoilt example of the traditional English country inn.
The building is steeped in history dating back over 350 years. From the drovers taking livestock to the nearby market towns and navvies working on the Settle Carlisle railway line to present-day tourists, this 17th-century Grade II listed building continues its long tradition of meeting the needs of those who enter.
The bar stocks a range of hand-pulled cask-conditioned ales chosen from the ever increasing number of micro-breweries in and around the local area. With meat from an award-winning butcher, fresh vegetables and salad from the local greengrocer and free range eggs from a nearby farm, the aim is to serve wholesome food locally sourced and freshly prepared.
Accommodation is available year round at this tranquil location, in double or twin-bedded rooms with private facilities.
