Any excuse will do to make the journey to Windermere to buy things I don't really need and then finish off with lots much in the cafe. Didn't disappoint, lovely soup and some shiny new pans rounded off a great day in the Lakes. Always a treat

This is the headquarters of Lakeland and the building is a beautifully curving piece of modern architecture. On entry, the staff are very attentive and friendly, but this is a nice feature of all Lakeland shops. As the flagship store, they stock the full range of Lakeland products, and whereas other Lakeland shops might do the same, the fact that... More

Visited the cafe on a very wet Sunday afternoon and it was very busy. Service was fast and food was ok; nothing special but all well done.

Excellent store to shop at. Good quality goods backed up by excellent customer service. There is also an excellent cafe which is so popular they have to use a booking system that utilizes a pager to notify you. Means you can keep shopping without missing your place in the queue.

Not only is the store a cooks delight but the restaurant is also excellent. They have a very good variety of meals and snacks which are made from quality ingredients. The staff are very polite and attentive. You are not rushed to move on even when they are busy.

Had another good shopping trip to the headquarters of Lakeland Plastics, the staff are so helpful and very knowledgeable of where everything is in the shop, no mean feat. Just had to use the Coffee Shop upstairs as the coffee is very good and the cakes are to die for, will be back again in a few months.

Visited here on a late Thursday afternoon. The place is packed with really useful gadgets, catering paraphernalia and cleaning items. The staff are friendly and helpful and have time to advise should you need to ask. Parking is easy as it is to find. On a wet afternoon in the Lakes it is worth a wander around for an hour... More

My daughter was not happy! I asked for my scone to be toasted but was told this could not be done. Toasted teacake on the menu so... More

Today's due to be a rainy day we decided to give a look on the Lakeland, basically is an kitchen appliances shop, with a little bit of everything, more focus into the kitchen/ cooking utensils. Good to do in a rainy day to spend 1h.
