Anita is an Amazing Cook - Edit

On a recent trip to the Lakes we were looking for somewhere for a Vegan evening dinner so we contacted Anita of Vegetarian Lakeland Living. We specified 3 courses and said we liked all foods. Always nice to have a surprise meal.

Anita's food was amazing. We had a refreshing tomato salad with some lovely olive bread and salad from the garden. For mains Anita made us a three mushroom and lentil pie topped with mash and lemon thyme with sides of aubergine cooked in tomatoes and steamed broccoli. Anita made us elderflower pancakes for dessert served with strawberries and blueberries and soya yoghurt. The pancakes were amazing - see the pictures! :-)

Price wise it is fairly however, this was a well thought out menu, with lots of time, effort and made just for us so really it was well worth it.

Anita was very friendly and welcomed us into her home for dinner. I hope we get to stay there one day - the breakfasts sound equally fab.

Pros: Amazing food, Lovely home environment, No corkage fees

Cons: A little serial eating in someone's lounge - but s

Superb vegan food and accommodation - Edit

We stayed here for a week and without exception had our taste buds tantalised every day with home made vegan breakfasts and dinners that were adventurous re-workings of classic rustic style cooking as well as other more 'exotic' dishes. Anita's culinary background and passion for her food came across in every meal we had making it a joy to sit down at her table. The ease with which she rustled up a vegan feast made us almost as green with envy as her green spring onion infused pancakes that were served up for breakfast one morning. Joking aside, her cooking has given us a shot of inspiration and has encouraged us to adopt Anita's mindset to food in our own cooking since being back home. We have troubled her since for recipes which she of course has kindly provided.

The room we stayed in was a cosy double as advertised though be warned that the bed is perhaps too comfortable and will require a lot of exertion to get out of and hit the hills from. Luckily, the smells from the kitchen drifting up the stairs in the morning provided us with that much needed boost! The bathroom is very large with a large pile of fluffy towels as advertised, alternating between pink, white and green. The house as a whole is a home away from home and nothing is too much trouble for Anita whose welcoming hospitality leaves you feeling at ease straight away.

This BnB is particularly suitable for all you animal lovers out there with Nina the friendliest cat we have seen in a long time and Razz the Chihuahua with a VERY large personality.

All in all, this was a very enjoyable experience that we would highly recommend to anyone but especially to those who are vegan or have special dietary requirements. Anita's vast knowledge and attention to detail takes all of the typical meal time stress away from you leaving you to enjoy your Lake District visit.

Veggie breakfast of the year - Edit

The food in this guest house is delicious. So good, in fact, that it won the Vegetarian Society's veggie breakfast of the year award! We were only able to confirm our booking at 11am on the day we were due to arrive. Despite that we were served a wonderful spicy creamy lentil soup with home made bread, roast vegetable tart with rosemary potatoes, lovely vegetables and salad, and rhubarb crumble with custard. We slept in a comfortable bed and had a spacious bathroom. Next day we were served the best vegetarian breakfast we have ever had, including a large platter of freshly cut fruit, a wide range of cereals, a fried breakfast including home made potato cakes, polenta and tofu, and more home made bread toasted and preserves. Anita is very friendly and helpful and there are two lovely friendly cats and a tiny Chihuahua to welcome you.

Pros: Very central, Friendly
