Chesters By The River
Chesters by the River is a gorgeous vegetarian café and shop by the beautiful River Brathay, on the way to Coniston & Langdale. Its a bright, modern cafe with a delicious all home-made menu and there’s a takeaway menu, or an outside area where you can sit by the wood-burner. A great place to stop…
Perfect café setting. Superb pizza from the wood fired oven and very very naughty cream cakes... Go on indulge yourselves. [Note: Vegetarian and vegan only]
Chesters is an excellent vegan and vegetarian cafe with a small takeaway at the back . It’s a lovely treat to visit after walking along the path to Elterwater .
Always busy, but worth the queue as the vegan food is exceptional and the setting is lovely. There is a good quality gift and homeware shop alongside the cafe too.
Chester's is a lovely vegan and vegetarian friendly cafe and gift shop. There are sit in and take away options. We'd recommend walking some of the Cumbria Way or the Langdales and finishing up at Chesters for a snack and peruse of the shop. Alternatively grab a take away snack from here to enjoy on…
“We recommend a visit to this fabulously preserved house, dating from the turn of the last century, and full of wonderful examples of Arts and Crafts furniture. You can sit in Blackwell’s historic chairs and enjoy the splendid views from the windows, rather than merely observing from behind a rope barrier.”
“Set deep in the heart of the Grizedale Forest, between the lakes of Coniston Water and Windermere, is the Grizedale Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre facilities include a new exhibition space with a full program throughout the year, gift shop, tearoom, adventure playground and picnic tables and is a good starting point for superb forest walks. 7 cross country and downhill mountain bike trails are free to use either with your own bike or hired bikes. There is mountain bike hire at the start of the trails. There are also Segway treks, Tree Top Junior, Ziptrekking and Tree Top Adventure. There are a number of interesting sculptures throughout the forest. Here is the largest site-related ‘Sculpture in the Forest’ exhibition in the country, which in 1986 was awarded for ‘the most outstanding contribution to art in a working environment’. ”
“Great pub grub at very good prices, you won't be disappointed, recommend the sharing plates.”
“Asian Fusion set in a Michelin star country house hotel. Great and interesting food, with a good feel to the space.”
