​ Cute Quaint Cafes Perfect for Afternoon Tea

Graham Hadaway - Monday, July 20, 2015


If there’s one thing the Lake District does well it is boutique. Whether you’re in Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside or any of our other picturesque towns, you’ll see a great variety of sole traders, unique shops, and organic food markets.

 

The centrepiece of any town or high street is a great place to rest and relax for afternoon tea, and the Lake District has some of the best around.

 

Below we’ve listed some of our favourites from around the local area to check out when you come to the Cranleigh.

 

Low Sizergh Barn

This family run farm, based in Kendal, is the epitome of home grown – their delicious cheeses are all produced from the farms cows. In fact, Windermere Ice Cream Company make all their flavours using the farms milk so chances are you’ve tasted their produce without even realising it!

The jewel of the shop however is their tea room. Situated on the top floor of the farm, the tea room seats 75 and has a delicious menu filled with locally sourced treats – everything from Low Sizergh Farm free range egg mayonnaise to homemade cakes and pots of Lakeland loose leaf tea.

Blackwell Tea Room

Situated on the road into Bowness, the Blackwell Tea Room is part of the Blackwell Arts and Crafts House – a unique and historic part of the Lake District’s art scene.

Although the Blackwell Tea Room is a bit on the small side and can fill up very quickly, their selection of gourmet open sandwiches and cakes are to die for. With the grounds overlooking both Lake Windermere and Coniston’s fells, it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty the Lake District has to offer.

Hazelmere Café and Bakery

Located at the opposite end of the Lake District, the Hazelmere Café can be found in the quaint Victorian seaside resort of Grange-Over-Sands - one of the areas true hidden gems.

Hazelmere emphasise locally sourced and seasonal foods made from scratch and to their original recipes, offering over 40 types of tea, artisan breads, a variety of mouth-watering cakes and sweets, as well as savouries such as steak and kidney pie and Cumberland sausage rolls. You are truly spoiled for choice so luckily they offer a takeaway service if you can’t make your mind up.
