An Inn for the 21st Century

Welcome to The Farmer’s Arms, an exceptional inn rescued and revived by Grizedale Arts and the local community. For centuries this historic hostelry on the edge of the Lake District welcomed travellers, locals, goods and ideas through its doors, but as times changed, this beautiful old inn lost its way.

Today The Farmer’s Arms is once again a thriving and ambitious rural hub, enhancing the lives of locals and visitors alike with wonderful food and drink, welcoming spaces for folk of all ages, and creative opportunities aplenty.

The Project

We believe in everyday creativity, and creativity everyday. It’s our mission to nurture this in everyone who works at The Farmer’s Inn and in everyone who visits us.  


After a successful first year, The Farmer’s Yarns is returning to The Farmer’s Arms on Saturday 2nd July, 10am – 4pm.

The festival showcases and celebrates the positive impact those making the most of British wool hosting over 20 stall holders from across the UK.
