The six bright, modest rooms at this 16th-century coaching inn above the Glenderamakin River have hosted the likes of Charles Dickens and local hunting legend John Peel, who lies buried in Caldbeck churchyard just a few miles away. Since 2000, owners Margaret and Jim Hodge have fostered a thriving business out of their homemade pies—which you can sample along with grilled fresh salmon and pan-fried duck breast before a roaring fire in the dining room—and they now host an annual Pie Fest at the inn. (Before you get too excited, remember that British pies are usually filled with meat and veggies, not fruit.)
