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

Sawmill Cottage Reviews

5 Star Review on Trip Advisor

“Lovely Cottage in a Perfect Location”

Stayed at Sawmill Cottage last week for a family reunion and we all loved it.

Great having the four en-suite bedrooms which are all a good size and nice big showers too, not to mention the beds which were soooo comfy.

The cottage is nice and spacious so eight of us didn’t feel crowded at all. It has recently been refurbished so has nice modern appliances and fittings yet manages to keep its old cottage feeling Lovely patio/garden area with a bench perfect for relaxing and looking out for the dippers and wagtails sitting on the rocks in the river.

Simon was extremely helpful, always quickly responding to any queries that we had.

We would definitely stay here again but my only concern about giving it a glowing review is that it’s going to be fully booked up and we may not be able to get in 😊 – John Mason, Lichfield Staffordshire

Weavers Cottages Reviews

5 out of 5 Review on Home Away

“Beautiful Cottage in Pretty Cartmel”

We had a lovely stay in Weaver’s Cottage.

The accommodation is welcoming and comfortable, with amenities and luxury touches that add quality to the stay.

The cottage is spacious and light and sleeps 8 in 4 double rooms. Cartmel has lots to offer in terms of walks and amazing food. It’s a good base from which to explore the Lakes – Sarah Ford

Hi Simon,

We had a great time, what an amazing cottage and an amazing area to stay.

The cottage was great, well equipped and provided plenty of space for us all, without being on top of each other.  We did visit Rogan and Co for a meal in Cartmel, which was also lovely.

Thank you again for your clear instructions and communications, we will definitely recommend this cottage to others.

Kind regards

Rachel Squires
