At Link House we know how important food is to making a good holiday great or just getting your working day off on the right note so we take great care with our selections and this has meant that we have won a Breakfast Award for the quality and range of the breakfast.

We try to source our produce as locally as possible and use the best quality we can find. Our eggs are all free range and come from Scales Farm just down the road. Drive down the A66 and you can see the hens in the fields. You can buy the eggs and other produce direct from Shelia and Thomas at their farm shop.

All our bacon, sausage and black pudding comes from Fell Top Farm at Hesket Newmarket. Alan and Ian make sure only the best quality is sold and their sausages are the best we have ever tasted.

The lamb, pies and chops come from Harrison's in Cockermouth. Tony is very particular about the meat he provides and is happy to talk about where his meat comes from.

Of course some items we have to buy come from further afield but we do try to avoid air freighted fruit and veg etc. out of season.

If you are going walking or cycling for the day and don't want the bother of stopping to buy sandwiches then we can provide you with a packed lunch. We can also fill flasks with tea or coffee for you.

We are also more conscious that people have food allergies. we are happy to discuss specific requests and can offer gluten free breakfasts etc. If you do have allergies please be sure to discuss them with us before you arrive. We can then make sure we are prepared. 

Start your day off in the right way with one of the varied selection of items available from our award winning menu. From healthy eating to the traditional Full Breakfast the choice is yours. Breakfast is served in the light and airy conservatory.

You can help yourself from the buffet where you will find fruit juice, cereals, home made granola (recipe available if you really like it), creamy greek yoghurt, fresh fruit, grapefruit and prunes.

The full Cumbrian breakfast or a vegetarian alternative is always available and we have a number of specials to tempt you including Kippers, Avocado on Sough Dough bread or Smoked Salmon. Special dietary needs can be catered for with advance notice.
