Once upon a time there were thousands of country inns like Bower House. Now there are a few, and their pleasures are immeasurable.
In the days when travelling was fraught with potholes in which you could lose a coach and four - the inn by the wayside was a sanctuary of warmth, comfort and companionship - a right good table and good measures. Today's traveller still needs such kind attentions.
For somewhere so remote from the pressures of the present day, Bower House is remarkably accessible to the traveller in Western Lakeland. Indeed it's less than 4 fair miles from the main Cumbria Coast road.
Of course, if time is no matter and you have the spirit of adventure, you can approach Eskdale Green and the inn via fell roads of quite awe-inspiring beauty.
