This family have big ambitions though, and after a successful launch in 2020, they are now providing online delivery service not only to your holiday cottage but also to any UK Mainland address, so you can order up a taste of Cumbria to be delivered wherever you live.
Emma ,Colin & Cameron, A Day’s walk
Colin tells us, “We wanted to provide delicious produce from local farmers, growers, producers or businesses, all within ‘a Day’s Walk’ of the heart of the Lake District, so we could reduce food miles, and at the same time help support and promote the amazing food businesses we have here.”
They are offering our guests a 10% discount on orders. Simply quote LAKES21 when you place your order online. (minimum order £40, delivery charge extra)
Their ‘larder’ is incredibly fresh, clocks up next to no food miles, is often made in small batches or seasonal – and although we may be biased, we think it’s some of the finest food and drink in the land. Their mouth-watering range of over 350 items from over 35 artisan or specialist producers, and cater to all your tastes. Select from rare and heritage breed meats from South Lakeland; free-range poultry from the foot of the Howgills; artisan cheeses from Appleby; beers brewed with Lake District water from Bowness Bay; hand-toasted muesli from Wigton; ketchup made from Lyth Valley damsons; ice cream made with Lake District organic milk and even Royal Warrant Morecambe Bay Shrimps. If there’s just too much choice, why not go for their One-Click Food Boxes; The Mighty Cumbrian Breakfast, Cumbrian Afternoon Tea, Luxury Lake District Taste Adventure, or the Ultimate BBQ Box.
How does it work?
Simply browse and order online as you would do with a supermarket delivery service. They deliver 6 days a week, direct to your home or holiday cottage. You’ll need to order 3 days before you need the delivery. Not going to be in? You can order a cool pack to be added to your basket and in true Cumbrian style, this is an insulated pouch full of sheep’s wool, along with some eco-chill packs.
