What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bowness-on-Windermere area?

The Lake District, which is also known as The Lakes, is a mountainous region in the county of Cumbria in the northwest of England. A popular holiday destination, with its lakes, forests and fells (hills or mountains) providing a platform for many outdoor activities, the area is famous for its spectacular scenery. Recently there has been a shift in offerings as the area positions itself as an epicurean destination – craft brewers, distillers, coffee roasteries, cheese larders, farmers' markets and excellent restaurants abound.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Simon Rogan's Henrock is an informal and relaxed restaurant located at Linthwaite House in the hills above Lake Windermere.

Head Chef Sam Fry collaborates with his kitchen staff to develop a constantly changing à la carte menu that is inspired by the chefs' global travels while also incorporating local foods. Much of the produce comes from Simon Rogan's own farm, the Farm, which is located just a few miles away in the Cartmel Valley, in keeping with his farm-to-table approach and strong appreciation for natural ingredients.

The Henrock team is dedicated to environmental stewardship and strives to produce zero waste. Growers and chefs collaborate to develop cutting-edge growing techniques that produce near-perfect produce in a regenerative and ecological environment.
