The Sun Inn Ulverston

Market Street, Ulverston, LA12 7AY
The Sun Inn Ulverston Outside

The Sun Inn is a very popular and lively pub in the centre of Ulverston. The pub, a Grade II listed former coaching inn, underwent a full refurbishment in early 2016, resulting in a tasteful update to the décor throughout the building, including the guestrooms. The hotel is less than a three-mile walk from Ulverston’s Laurel and Hardy Museum and its principle arts and entertainment venue, Coronation Hall. Ulverston is a 15-minute drive from Lake Windermere, and 40-minutes from the M6.

There are a couple of points to consider when choosing this inn. Firstly, children are not permitted to stay in the rooms. Secondly, there is a nightclub in the basement of the building and regular live music events in the bar. This pub would therefore most likely appeal to younger adults seeking somewhere with a vibrant night life that offers great value for money.

A cooked breakfast is available for hotel guests.

The bar is open every day from 10am with teas, coffees, and snacks available alongside an excellent selection of alcoholic beverages including local cask ales.
