On a meat based theme: Windermere and Cumbria is the Home of Britain’s 44th Protected Food
The unique cultural heritage of the Cumberland Sausage was recognised in 2011 when the pork coil-shaped snack was granted protected status.
Known for its distinctive peppery taste thanks to a blend of both white and black pepper, the Cumberland sausage is made from chopped meat which gives it a more chunky texture than its counterparts made from meat that has been minced.
True Cumberland sausages are around 2 feet long and a quarter of an inch thick and must contain at least 80% meat, making them a delicious and authentic treat for anyone visiting the Lake District!

With its stunning beauty and sense of remote isolation, Ennerdale provided the perfect backdrop for the 2002 Danny Boyle film and is just an hour and a half’s drive from Windermere Marina Village.

Cartmel, close to Windermere Marina Village, is also known for its delicious Sticky Toffee Pudding so head on over!
