Also on the gardening theme, you can now combine a visit to the Peter Rabbit Garden with a visit to Rydal Mount, the home of one of England's finest poets, William Wordsworth.
As well as retaining popular favourites like the Cumbrian Platter and local roast beef, our menus include new dishes which will use completely fresh fruit and vegetables grown in the garden and our new organic kitchen garden. This means that yoru guest will be eating rare heritage varieties of organic fruit and vegetables direct from our own gardens and offered when they are in season. Food doesn't come fresher than that.
