Open every day, The Lingholm Kitchen and Walled Garden has quickly become a popular Lakeland destination for Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Tea. Serving a range of locally sourced foods alongside artisan breads and cakes which are all made in the adjoining Lingholm Bakery. With real barista coffee from a local Cumbrian roasters, a wide range of eclectic teas and treats that are hard to resist, The Lingholm Kitchen will not disappoint.
Within the Kitchen there is also a sizeable gift shop selling a range of quality gifts, pottery, toys, cards and books, and a striking art wall with a unique range of prints and photographs for sale that have been specially commissioned by Lingholm and feature local landmarks and views. The café has a stunning 100 foot long glass wall looking down on the octagonal walled garden and up to Skiddaw. The walled garden sits on the same spot as the old Lingholm kitchen gardens which Beatrix Potter credited as her original inspiration for Mr McGregor’s garden in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Within the walled garden is an outside gallery dedicated to the work of Beatrix Potter in the Derwentwater area, much of it undertaken whilst she stayed at Lingholm. Entry to the garden and the gallery is free and the café is open from 9am until 5pm daily, or dusk in winter.
You can get to Lingholm by car with a free car park for customers, catch the Keswick Launch to Hawes End or Nichol End jetty’s then it’s a short stroll along the footpath or arrive by foot along the Catbells path which is just a 10 minute walk from Portinscale or a ﬂat, gentle 35 minute walk from Keswick.
