Birthday Tea in The Lake District


I am taking my Parents to The Lake District in April for their 60th birthdays.

I would like to know if there is anywhere - such as a tearoom, that would bake a birthday cake and has room for us to sit and eat it along with a few sandwiches and a pot of tea.

We are staying in between Windermere and Bowness but will have transport so can travel if necessary.

I've never been, but my friend if always raving about Brambles Tearoom in Windermere. At a quick glance I couldn't find a website for it, but it might be worth calling them?

Although it's a 25 mile and 45 minute drive from Windermere, I would recommend the Borrowdale Gates Hotel, in Grange, which is near the southern tip of Derwent Water www.borrowdale-gates.com/

I've recently organised and enjoyed my wife's 50th birthday cream tea there ( as a result of an equally fabulous previous birthday cream tea visit), and they organised flowers and sparkling wine for me, in addition to a full cream tea- sandwiches, scone, jam and cream and an array of cakes. I'm sure they could organise a birthday cake if you get in touch.

They have a window lined lounge area with great views down Borrowdale where you can enjoy your tea.

If you are going to Borrowdale your parents might like the view of Derwentwater from Ashness Bridge. It is high above the lake but you can get all the way up by car and then park and a short walk to enjoy the spectacular view then off to enjoy a great tea by the sounds of it.

It is only a mile or two as a detour

Most of the big hotels do afternoon tea and have large gardens with nice views.

I guess that they will be happy to discuss a birthday cake - for a price :o)
