Owner description: World famous tea and coffee garden with romantic rowing boats for hire on the shore of gentle Grasmere.

Although this boat landing now has fiberglass boats which are not so easy to row as the old clinker built boats it is still a lovely activity to take a boat out on the Lake, have a picnic at the end of the Lake and row back.

They also sell an interesting range of Teas!!

Good value for an hour and lovely scenery to row a boat. Friendly service and good value and highly recommended way to spend an hour or two ...

Perfectly located on Grasmere with some covered (but still outdoors) tables if needed. Simple choice of various hot/cold drinks and cakes/pastries.

I think the charging system for the boats is a bit much (I.e. by person rather than by boat) but that said there a probably few better spots in the UK to impress your other half with your rowing prowess (I didn't try to!).

Staff (owner?) does not necessarily add to the magical experience.

Odd cups and saucers like your Gran owned, a mismatch of teapots, seats on the lake shore, ducks around your feet and a swan that tried to mug me for my scone.
This place is not to be missed in rain or shine

The weather was warm, dry and sunny. We had walked over from Chapelstile and were just ready for a brew, a loo and a view. What an excellent brew, a very welcome loo and a fabulous view! The cream scones were delicious. Lots of wildlife in and around the tea garden, including a Redstart. So good we even called in again a few days later.
Having seen the endless crocodliles of walkers throughout Grasmere, I was not surprised to find that an isolated cafe in a beauty spot like this would need to limit the free use of its facilities. The photos would be just as good if taken a few yards outside the small tea garden and the one and only loo would soon be overwhelmed. So if you want a pee, then buy a tea!
