Soak up the feeling of days gone by sitting by the large open log fire in the original Mediaeval Hall which houses the Dalemain Tearoom. Try a delicious selection of hot and cold homemade food, speciality coffees using Farrer's coffees from Kendal, our freshly baked scones are worth a try, as is the famous Dalemain chocolate cake!
Also on display in the Tearoom and Gift Shop are the Double Gold and Gold Winners Marmalades from this year's 'World's Original Marmalade Awards' which are all for sale. Look out for the selection of enchanting and original Dalemain Marmalade's exclusively available for you to buy at Dalemain and Fortnum and Mason, London.
Be sure not to miss seasonal bargains from our Plant Stall which also contains a lovely selection of plants from the garden on sale too!
The Dacre Walk begins from Dalemain Courtyard and ends at the beautiful 12th Century, Grade I listed church at Dacre. Guarded by bears at the four corners and containing a cross legged crusader, it is the ideal way to spend a sunny afternoon, or perhaps to end a rainy one with a steaming cup of tea and a well earned piece of cake in the Dalemain Tearoom.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
