Our top Cafes in South Lakes

Customers often ask us for a recommendation for food between sessions. So as part of our ongoing customer service we have been doing some heavy market research; any excuse to eat cake....

Instructors Matt, Will and Amy (holding the camera) on a tough day off.

Coniston area.

Green House Keeper Cafe
This little gem of a cafe is hiding in plain view on the main street of Coniston. We mainly have their superb bacon butties on a dash through to meet customers but an extended stay is highly recommended.

Hollands Cafe at Lakeland House Hotel
Possibly the best breakfast in Cumbria? A super friendly, hearty meal awaits.... we make any excuse to come here for breakfast with groups!

The Wilsons Arms in Torver
 Pub, Restaurant and Deli! This great gastro pub combo is in Torver, 5 minutes drive from Coniston. A great traditional evening meal option, make sure you book as its often busy.

Ambleside and Beyond 

Now there are many, many good places to eat in Ambleside and Bowness, so we have decided to point out a couple that you may not find otherwise. 

Cafe Altitude, Ambleside Climbing Wall
This unusual choice is actually really good, for a place that's focus is towards the climbing wall the coffee, food and staff are great. Why not go climbing whilst you're here too?!

Cafe Latte, Bowness on Windermere
Talk about finding a needle in a haystack, this little place is a sanctuary amongst a very touristy location. Two words, mmmmmm cake...

Chesters by the River, Elterwater
The posh option, where I take my parents when they visit! Afternoon tea? Yes please!

Slightly Further afield.

Broughton Square Cafe, Broughton in Furness
Distinctly off the beaten track, you will have to make an effort to reach Broughton. But if you happen to be passing this little cafe it's well worth a visit. Simple no frills food with friendly local staff.

The Coach House Cafe, Ford Park, Ulverston
Locally sourced, home grown, fairtrade, organic, gluten free... sound good? Come here!
