Tucked away off the main road in the heart of the Lake District, The Golden Rule is ever popular with residents and visitors as a post-walk retreat. Set in the magnificent Lake District National Park, there are many walking routes nearby. The Coffin Route is a local favourite; taking you from Ambleside to Grasmere and back in a day. Highlights along the way are views of Grasmere waters, Rydal Hall and the picturesque surrounding fells of Loughrigg. The route also has historic significance as in the past it was used to carry coffins between the villages to the nearest cemetery, which is where it gets its name. Proudly standing as a Grade II listed establishment, The Golden rule prides itself off simplicity – with no background music, no noisy games machines, no big screen televisions, it is just the place to relax and have a locally brewed pint and a chat.
