“Hidden gem”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

Brilliant find tucked away behind the garden centre. Perfect for row boating and drinking a variety of teas served from a little cabin hut with a decorative gypsy caravan. We paid £13.50 with a £20 deposit to row around a little island on a private lake. They only take cash so come prepared.

“Great Little Place”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

I cannot tell you how many times we have walked past this place, it always looked closed! so during our last visit to Grasmere (August 11th) we decided to take a proper look. So pleased we did this is a small idyllic location with a view over Grasmere Lake. The staff were friendly, the service great and the coffee was excellent.

100% recommend this place if your in or around Grasmere and you just want to sit and chill.

“Good choice of teas”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a little lakeside cafe and boating hire place. It was surprising to find such a good choice of teas and coffees. Clearly someone here cares about these things! To be congratulated.

“Lakeside Cafe”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

If you want a cafe with a view then this is it and the coffee is ace, if you do the grasmere walk right round lake you can stop here before the last 5 minutes back into town. The cafe has a great atmosphere although it looks like a shack....but it is lovely..

“Great position, Gorgeous tea/coffee shop, Lovely time”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Great position, Gorgeous tea/coffee shop, Lovely time - atmosphere super / calm, chilled (especially good on hottest day of year). Lovely choice of refreshing teas in thematic backyard overlooking Grasmere Water. Boats were pricey but well worth it - the lake is one of the best. We spent most of the day around the lake starting & retreating back to Faeryland - a real find / enjoy x
