A beautifully laid out shop and the cafe is right at the top. A very pleasant atmosphere. We had soup and it was one of the nicest that I have tasted. Friendly staff.

Without doubt this is the best quality store for outdoor gear in the Lakes. However don't expect to find anything on sale or available for the price conscious....they carry only the best and only wish we could afford 😎
