The Crown and Mitre, Bampton Grange is the ideal place to use as a base to explore the North Eastern Fells of the Lake District whether your walking, cycling or driving. This area of the North East is also brimming with wildlife, and you were only a short walk away from England’s only golden eagle, sadly not spotted since last year (2015). You can also spot red squirrels from the Crown and Mitre in the church yard.
Bampton Grange itself is a small historic hamlet set on the Shap to Askham Road right in the middle of Withnail and I country. The Crown & Mitre is a grade II listed building, most of which date from 17th and 18th century and are good examples of the vernacular tradtion.
We are a popular resting place for those on Coast to Coast walk for serious walkers, and for those who feel like more leisurely exercise you can try a shorter walk in and around Bampton Grange. And we shouldn’t forget to mention that the Crown and Mitre is firmly in Withnail and I country.
