Bed & Breakfast


Eric and Joanna Barker have been running Red Lion House as a bed and breakfast establishment since 2011 having lived in the Ulverston area since 1989. They very much enjoy the friendly nature of the town and the easy accessibility the location provides to the beautiful lake district. They are passionate about making sure their guests are given a very warm welcome and that their stay is both relaxing and comfortable in every way.
Eric and JoannaThey are pleased to be able to continue a long tradition of hospitality associated with Red Lion House which was first established in the mid to late 1800s as a public house serving miners working in local iron ore mines.
The Red Lion continued to operate as a well known pub and eatery long after the iron ore mines closed until the 1990s when the property was converted into a private dwelling. In 2011, Eric and Joanna welcomed their first bed and breakfast guests over the weekend of the Royal wedding between Will and Kate and have never looked back.
