The Gateway Inn was extensively refurbished in 2015 and has a total of eight rooms available to guests both twin and doubles. The rooms are furnished to an extremely high standard and feature all the facilities that you would expect in a modern country hotel including a TV, free Wi-Fi, and more-than-ample tea and coffee making facilities. The rooms are spacious but still retain a warm and cosy feel to them and guests can gaze out of the windows and enjoy the beautiful surrounding Cumbrian countryside.
