The Swallows and Amazons cafe offers delicious breakfast, brunch and lunch, all homemade on the farm using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. We also have a great selection of wine and local Lake District ales for you to enjoy with your meal too!

Additionally we offer a catering service to our cottages residents please check the catering page.

We provide evening meals that you can eat in our restaurant (booking in advance highly recommended) or in the comfort of your self catered cottage.

All of our dishes are completely homemade in the farmhouse kitchen using the freshest ingredients possible. Our herbs are from our own kitchen herb garden and where possible the vegetables are also homegrown.

Our beef is from our own pedigree herd of Aberdeen Angus cattle. They are grass finished on the farm and the meat is dry aged for a minimum of 21 days to develop a full flavour. Our lamb is from our own flock of Jacob sheep grazed alongside the cattle and specifically chosen for its mild succulent flavour. All our game is wild and from the surrounding fields and woodlands and the deep water Char are line caught by local fishermen in Coniston Water.

Our ethos is to farm in a sensible and sustainable manner so whilst not organically certified we farm a low input system that is mainly organic in character allowing us to develop the highest possible quality grass finished beef and lamb.

We also have a great selection of wine and local Lake District ales for you to enjoy with your meal too!

We can open for for groups of 8 or more people on any night as long as it is booked in advance, please call 015394 41264 to discuss.
