Lake District Tea Shop Walks Top 10

Lake District Tea Shop Walks Top 10

by: Vivienne Crow
A visit to a teashop adds something special to a walk. It's always a treat to sit down to tea of coffee and cake at the end of an afternoon stroll, or to tuck into a hearty lunch half way through a gorgeous hike. The ten tea shops in this book have been chosen partly on the basis of the excellent walking that can be enjoyed from their doors and partly on the basis of the fare and ambience they have to offer.

They occupy village, lakeside and woodland locations. The walks themselves take in hidden valleys, low fells, lakes, waterfalls, riverside paths, fabulous viewpoints and wildflower-filled woods, a tremendous array of the sort of scenery for which the Lake District has become world famous.

This little pocket guide is produced in full colour with an emphasis on stunning professional photography. Each route has clear easy-to-follow numbered instructions and full colour OS Explorer 1:25,000 mapping. At the beginning of each walk chapter there is a box giving all the practical information you require, such as distance, a time estimate, start location with grid reference, OS map sheet number and details of the tea shop visited. A summary of each walk is also provided. All the walks are circular. There are also fascinating facts about places along the way.

The walk locations and the tea shops are:
Grasmere, Brew at Heidi's
Ambleside, The Rattle Ghyll
Elterwater, Elterwater Café
Claife, Café in the Courtyard

Buttermere, Croft house Farm Café
