Locally Sourced Lake District Food

We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests some wonderful locally sourced Lake District food, courtesy of local business, ‘A Days Walk’.

We’ve worked with ‘A Days Walk’ to put together a bespoke welcome hamper, containing delicious local produce, ensuring you’ll have the essentials waiting for you when you arrive at Birkdale House.

We’ve included classic artisan muesli, brimming with almonds, cranberries, pumpkin seeds and raisins; organic apple juice, made in the heart of the north Cumbria countryside; some delicious Cumbrian butter made from free range cream, direct from Winter Tarn Farm near Appleby; and some succulent Cumbrian country-cured back bacon.

The perfect start to any stay in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

Our full welcome hamper includes:

One large white farmhouse cob from Grange Bakery

Six eggs from Geldard Free Range Eggs

Award-winning Artman Classic Muesli from Lakeland Mues

Organic Apple Juice from Eva’s Organics

Butter from Winter Tarn Dairy

Two pints of whole milk from South Lakes Organics

Tea and coffee from Rinaldo’s

Olives from Silver Green in Penrith

Bacon (900g for 10 guests) from Woodalls

We will also include biscuits and crisps.

If you want to upgrade your hamper, we’ve can also include some top-quality cooked ham, cured and full of flavour from Taste of the Lakes in Maryport; a luxury, creamy Eden Valley Brie from the Appleby Creamery; and the finest Cartmel Valley Game Smoked Salmon, smoked in their own Cumbrian smokehouse, bringing a flavour of the fells to this delicate fish.

There will be an additional fee for the luxury bespoke hamper.

A Day’s Walk: Locally Sourced Food

Every item A Day’s Walk supplies comes from a local farmer, grower, producer or business within a day’s walk of the heart of the Lake District.

Using the Lake District as its larder, it stocks some of the finest food and drink in the country. And the fact that it is locally sourced, means it’s fresh. What’s more, it’s clocked up next to no food miles, is often produced in small batches and is seasonal.

From ice cream to real ales, Cumberland sausage to sticky toffee pudding, there’s something for everyone.
