Can you fly to the Lake District?

Carlisle Lake District Airport

Yes, as from earlier this month, you can! After an absence of more than 25 years, visitors can now once again arrive into Cumbria and the Lake District by air. Leave the hustle and bustle of London city life behind and enjoy the views over the stunning Lake District landscape before arriving less than an hour and a half later into Carlisle Lake District Airport. You’d think it sounds almost too good to be true but that’s now how easy it now is to reach this beautiful area.


It's show time! What to see and do in the Lakes this summer

Lowther Castle Country Fair

Summer definitely marks the start of ‘show time’ in the Lake District. Our traditional county shows celebrate the best of the area’s food, drink and countryside heritage. From sheepdog displays and hound trails, to the ancient Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling and Fell Running, some of Cumbria’s county shows have been running for almost 200 years and are still providing great entertainment to today’s visitors.


Proudly revealing our new summer menu!

The Pheasant Bistro

First up, an apology… for those who regularly follow this blog (and yes, we know you’re out there!), we’re sorry we’ve been so quiet recently.

But don’t worry, we’re back now and we bring you some exciting news from the kitchen.


Cumbria goes crackers for Christmas!
