Within the village of Ravenstonedale there are two very popular Pubs that both serve excellent food and it is advisable to book both in advance if you plan to eat out at either of them:
The Kings Head
Located just a two minute walk from Coldbeck Barn and next to the stream that runs through the village, the Kings Head is one of the oldest buildings in the village. This is an ideal place to try and spot some of the local red squirrel population.

The Black Swan
Located at the other end of Ravenstonedale, the Black Swan is a victorian building built from lakeland stone. Golf clubs and Tennis Racquets are available to hire from here to use the village facilities. They also have a lovely garden next to the stream.

The Fat Lamb
A 17th Century coaching inn a few miles outside the village, the Fat Lamb is locally renowned for its food. With an 11 acre nature reserve and unparalleled views of the lake district, visiting the Fat Lamb is highly advised.

Local Walks
