White Hart, Bouth
The White Hart Inn at Bouth, Newby Bridge is a classic Lake District country pub, a 17th century coaching inn in a quiet village setting; a multi award-winning CAMRA pub with accommodation. The White Hart is situated in the attractive village of Bouth, almost half-way between the southern end of the lake at Windermere and Coniston in the Lake District National Park.
Originally a Coaching Inn which dates back to the 1600s, when the main road (then just a turnpike) ran between Ireleth and Kendal and passed through the village of Bouth. The village itself has been awarded 'Cumbria's best kept village' in the past and also placed in the top three on several occasions. The White Hart Inn is an excellent retreat after a day of walking, rock climbing, cycling or fishing. It's a great place to relax and get away from it all and is a good base for low level walking or cycling routes.
