“Find all you wanted?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

That's what they say on the tills at Lakeland 'Find all you wanted'. I'm tempted to answer 'Wanted all I found' As always came out with full bags of things I didn't even know where missing in my life! This has to be a rite of passage into womanhood. Not just kitchen stuff either. Who remebers the old 'Magic Robot' game? Bought one here for my grandchildren, also cutters and instruction for a Gingerbread house. I could rave on. Good coffee in the cafe with hot milk which is always a bonus.

“Let down Lakeland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

It was raining heavily when we got there. Parked ok went inside and warmed up. Decided to have lunch so went upstairs and found an empty table. Accosted by waiter "are you on the list?" us "what list?" he says 30 minute wait for table about an hour wait for food - even though we'd got an empty table among lots of empty tables. We said sod that and walked out. Upon walking out of the carpark we're accosted again! A man was guarding the car park entrance and he said you can't leave your car here it's full. Well it wasn't full we could see 3 spaces from where we stood arguing that if Lakeland can't feed us someone else can. But the jobsworth says you have to take your car. As I explained to him Windemere relies on tourists, we're tourists treat us badly and we won't spend money there and we won't come back. Also we'll tell all and sundry about the incompetent Lakeland.

“"Shopping"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Despite the lure of all the scenery amid the hills and lakes, my wife made it a condition that we HAD to visit Lakeland - In fact during our 5 days based at Windermere, we went to Lakeland THREE times. Plenty to see and buy !
