16TH Century Coaching Inn

A Family business started over thirty years ago saw a building – formerly The Golden Lion – go through a much needed transformation and over the years has built up a reputation based on quality and local produce.

Now more than ever our emphasis on buying locally and putting back into where we buy from has never been as important, after 2019/2020 we feel the impact from us doing this is shown more.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to both Sedbergh and The Dalesman.

Sedbergh Gin

Sedbergh’s own gin is our newest addition. We distill in small batches which gives us the traditional dry gin, sometimes lost by some larger people in the industry. Distilling in small batches allows us to take away and add flavours precisely.

Rooms for every occasion

Choose a room in our Country Inn or book one of our cosy Cottages for your break. Our rooms are priced individually as no two rooms are the same.

With our larger rooms, we have paid great attention to detail and incorporated such things as Hungarian goose down, Zoffany wallpaper, and tweed fabric fitted walling. The smaller rooms are ideal for those staying over whilst passing through on one of many popular walks such as the Dales Way.

Quality & Taste

Our own breed livestock

We are incredibly proud of where our ingredients come from, no more than our meat. Brian and his team at Birks Farm Sedbergh supply us with Galloway beef and rough fell lamb all year round. The livestock is grazed at Marthwaite and then brought down to pasture in Sedbergh. The travel from Field to Restaurant is less than 30 miles, almost unheard of anywhere in the UK. This adds to the taste and quality of the meat but also to the quality of the animal.

Not only is this entirely unique to us and our venue at The Dalesman Country Inn which allows us to be above and beyond anyone quality wise, what we do encourages money to go back into our community directly and back to the farm.
