The Hare and Hounds is a gorgeous 16th Century coaching inn set in the pretty village of Levens, in the Lyth Valley, on the edge of the Lake District. It’s a proper village pub, full of character, with a mean cocktail list, local cask ales, great craft beers and delicious comfort food. It has rooms too, beautifully styled with lots of thoughtful touches to make for a lovely stay. Run by Ash and Becky Dewar, who bought the pub in 2013 and have been lovingly taking care of it ever since, The Hare and Hounds welcomes everyone – kids, muddy boots and dogs included.



Our 5 lovely letting rooms are back open. We have devised a self check in system, and lots of individual touches in our rooms to ensure guests feel safe and re assured during their stay. Book online, or contact us directly for availability. 

If you are looking for more of a self catering experience, our lovely BARN ANNEXE has its own entrance, car park space right outside the entrance, kitchen and living area. If you are interested in a room only or a 4 night stay in this room only, please contact Becky, Yvonne or Heather directly at and they can organise a great rate for you.

A proper Lakeland pub

Fabulous comfort food

Simple and fresh but ridiculously tasty, all our food is locally sourced and made in our own kitchen.

We take our drinks seriously

Craft beers, local ales, a good sold wine list and lovingly created cocktails
