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!

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!
