Welcome to the Shepherds Arms
Just where the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk turns right towards wild Ennerdale stands The Shepherds Arms. An old farmhouse in the centre of Ennerdale Bridge offering a warm and friendly welcome in traditional Lakeland style, The Shepherds Arms is well known amongst walkers from around the world as a comfortable overnight stop that is also a popular food destination for locals.
Free of traffic, Ennerdale valley is uniquely peaceful, full of interest, and surrounded by iconic fells and wonderfully memorable walks. St Bees, the coastline and a variety of popular Lake District attractions are within easy reach too.
We are open, and have some very special protection in place!
From Saturday 4 July we have been open for accommodation, meals, drinks, and takeaways (see our menu under the Food & Drink link). At present our opening hours are from 5.00 pm on Mondays to Thursdays, and from 12 noon on Fridays to Sundays when food is served all day, but these times will be increased as more folk start to venture out.
