Lots of outdoor space to store your bike alongside a bike pump


Excellent for larger groups with plenty of outdoor seating and even a bike pump for those emergencies


Superb, set centrally within the Lake District National Park therefore there's so many great routes right on your doorstep, do try out one of our very own routes

You’ll find great cake at this bike friendly cafe with perhaps the best outdoor seating for groups heading to touristy Lake District village of Grasmere. There’s a light and airy feel along with friendly and efficient service.

Outside you’ll find plenty of room to park your bikes along with a handy bike pump should you need to inflate en-route.

Step inside and on the counter you’ll find a superb selection of homemade cakes including an orange & almond, chocolate tiffin, Swedish gingerbread, spiced & iced fruit cake and moist carrot cake. There’s also a great savoury menu with a selection of brunch and lunch bites.

Whilst in the village be sure to head to The Grasmere Gingerbread Shop to takeaway quite simply ‘the best gingerbread in the world’ – we agree!
