Welcome to the Heversham Hotel

Heversham Hotel is a beautiful pub situated between Milnthorpe and Kendal serving Samuel Smith’s range of high quality British ale, lager, stout, fruit beer, cider and perry – offering unrivalled quality and value. Samuel Smith’s is a small, independent British brewery offering beers and ciders made with the highest quality natural ingredients, no chemical additives or preservatives.

Good Pub Food

The Heversham Hotel serves straight forward no-nonsense pub food at good value prices.


Accommodation is available from £80 per night for a double/twin room furnished to a very high standard. Our bedrooms can be booked via telephone or this website – you will not find our rooms on any “online travel agents” such as Booking.com because they charge 15% commission which the customer must ultimately pay for, and this makes for poor value.

Heversham lies at the head of Morecambe Bay – the picture on the hotel sign is a bird’s eye view looking out towards Arnside railway viaduct and the bay. The building which is now Heversham Hotel has 16th century origins. It was for a time the vicarage and the lawns extended up to the church. It ceased to be the vicarage in 1842 and became a private house called Elm Lawn. In the early twentieth century the house was converted to Heversham Hotel. In 1927 the bypass was opened by the Prince of Wales, hence the name Princes Way, cutting through the hotel gardens. In 1966 the hotel was renamed the Blue Bell (the bell in the bar is the porter’s bell from Heversham railway station and the name Blue Bell is a homage to another pub of the same name in the village which closed in 1952). After major refurbishment in 2016, the original hotel name of HEVERSHAM HOTEL was reinstated.
