Eat locally in the Lakes

Autumn is the season of harvest and thanksgiving, making it the perfect time to show some appreciation for the amazing local producers we have here in the UK. There’s nowhere more blessed in this department than the Lake District; read on to find out about some of our favourites.

<h2>Bryson’s of Keswick</h2>

This family business has been part of the Keswick landscape for almost 70 years and the cakes and bakes on offer there are still just as good as the day it opened! Try their tasty Lakeland Plum Bread for a truly local treat.

<h2>Yew Tree Farm</h2>

Yew Tree Farm supplies Herdwick Lamb, a heritage breed that’s local to the Lake District. What’s more, it’s based in a farmhouse which once belonged to Beatrix Potter, the Lakes’ favourite daughter. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall once said of it, “Their Herdwick Hogget is among the finest I have tasted.” Well-connected indeed!

<h2>Pennine Eggs</h2>

If it’s cosseted chicks you want to lay your eggs then head for Pennine Eggs, where hens are free to roam on a variety of farms in the West Pennine region. They taste pretty good, too!

You can find all of the local suppliers mentioned on the menu at Borrowdale Gates, a <a href=”/”>4 star hotel</a> boasting an AA Rosette restaurant that’s located right in the heart of Lakeland, an easy drive from the town of Keswick.
