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

 

 

Spoilt for choice

We are spoilt for choice when eating out in Cumbria & the Lake District. Many of our local producers and restaurateurs have turned food & drink into an art form with award winning restaurants, pubs & cafes dotted around the county, you’ll need more than a weekend visit to experience the best of what our area has to offer.

The choice of places to eat & drink in Cumbria ranges from quintessential country pubs offering a mixture of classic pub food through to modern gastro pubs and a huge variety of restaurants that will suit all budgets and tastes.

You’ll find Michelin starred restaurants including the North West’s only 2 Michelin star restaurant (L’Enclume in Cartmel), wonderful regional restaurants using local produce, seafood restaurants and of course restaurants catering for those who like food from around the world including French bistro’s, Thai restaurants, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Spanish etc.

Many of our local restaurants welcome children and several restaurants and most pubs also allow dogs too.

Cumbria & the Lake District is also privileged to have many wonderful farm shops, farmers markets and daily, weekly & monthly village & country markets where you’ll be able to buy wonderful local produce and get to meet the farmers and producers too.

Cartmel Hill Reviews

5 of 5 Review on ‘Home Away’

“Beautiful house in a great setting”

Great place to stay for touring south Cumbria. The house is very large and plenty of bathrooms to use. Good parking for a number of cars.

I would certainly not hesitate to stay at this house again at any time of year as the views are fantastic from every lounge window – Kevin Lace

“Fantastic weekend away”

We had a lovely weekend in Weavers Cottage. The cottage is in a perfect spot for exploring Cartmel and walking to the restaurants and pubs. The cottage is finished to a high standard and is nice and homely. Thank you – Emma brown

Sawmill Cottage Reviews

From Email

An outstanding week,  definitely helped by the weather.

The cottage is excellent for us as a family. I suspect you’re going to pick up a lot of repeat business for Sawmill Cottage 😊

We’ll be back again!
