Lake District Food & Drink

 

The Lake District is a food lovers heaven with a great variety of locally produced & organically grown products & delicacies. Much of our local produce has a distinctly Cumbrian history, such as the Cumberland sausage, damsons, Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding, Grasmere Gingerbread, Kendal Mint Cake, rum butter, Herdwick Lamb, Holker Salt Marsh Lamb, Muncaster Crab and of course Morecambe Bay brown shrimps

Carree Cottage Reviews

Good morning Simon,

I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic break in Carree Cottage.  In no small measure, that was due to the excellent pre-arrival service from you and the thorough information pack that you provided.  You obviously put a lot of work into that and it was much appreciated.

We visited many of the places you suggested and had a splendid time.  We walked on most days and hardly took the car out of the garage.  The weather cooperated too!

A very memorable holiday.  We hope to be back to South Lakeland and Carree Cottage again soon.

Many Thanks,

Keith & Annie Andrews, Telford, Shropshire

Weavers Cottages Reviews

From Email

We had a wonderful stay at Weaver’s Cottage with our friends. We spent most of our time relaxing in the beautiful conservatory or walking into the village and trying out all the lovely eateries.

Also did a few day trips to Grange-over-Sands, Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside.

The standard of the cottage was excellent with all our needs met and more.  We didn’t use the beautiful kitchen with all its appliances etc. as it was a holiday and cooking was not on our list!

The garden was beautiful and all very spacious with plenty of parking space.

The proximity to the village was great and very handy to walk to.

Our only disappointment was that we left a day too early to see Cliff Richards perform at the race meeting.

Regards

Helen and Garry Greenhill, Heidelberg,  Australia

“Lovely cottage in a lovely village”

Lovely 4 bed cottage in pretty Cartmel.  Well equipped and spotless.

Comfy beds, modern bathrooms and plenty of parking space. A great base for Cartmel and the south lakes.

A short walk into Cartmel with its amazing Priory and charming racecourse. Plenty of places to eat and drink in the village. We enjoyed the Priory Hotel for simple quality food and The Cavendish for something a bit more adventurous. We will be back – Charles
