Cafe on the Lake
The Cafe on the Lake is the hub for the activities on Esthwaite Water.
Light lunches, smoked fish platters and delicious cream teas are a welcome refreshing treat after or before your walk to Hill Top or your Osprey Safari on the lake.
We have video loops of the animals on the lake, which make an interesting interlude, as well as books and drawing activities for children and adults alike.
Pond dipping equipment with instructional booklets are on sale, as are other items of gift-ware.
A large picture window offers expansive views of the lake, all the more interesting when seen through our binoculars.
Feeding time on the floating bird table is at 2pm every day.
Anyone wishing to try their luck fishing on the lake can hire tackle and boats from the fishing lodge.
For those willing to walk along the Beatrix Potter™ Nature Trail to Hill Top, then you may consider a longer stay in our car park.
