Cumbria and the Lake District produces some of the best and most distinctive regional food and drink.
From gins and liqueurs, to speciality roast coffee, pickles and all types of condiments, chocolate, cakes, bread, cheese, meat and even muesli, our foodie stars never disappoint. If you want to stock up in time for Christmas or you’re looking for a present for a hard-to-buy-for friend, Cockermouth is the place to be this weekend.
The Taste Cumbria Christmas event (December 8 and 9) will have a producers’ market on Main Street where you’ll find many of your favourites all in one place. A bar will be stocked with Jennings ales and you can take a breather for mulled wine and snacks at the hot food court.
The town’s shops, pubs and cafés are also well worth a visit.
If you can’t make it this weekend – come and stay at our cosy cottage because all the delicious foods featured at the event are available throughout the Lake district all year round.
