Cooking & Dining

We want you to enjoy every moment of your stay at Derwentwater House so whatever your desire for food and drink, we can help.

The dining room and kitchen are the perfect area in which to celebrate with all your guests. A fabulous locally made oak table comfortably seats up to twenty, with candelabras, stunning modern art, and lovely views of the mountains and lake.

If you love cooking then help yourselves to the ultra-swish kitchen, equipped with two ovens, two fridges, two freezers, warming drawer, microwave, two dishwashers and even a wine fridge. The induction hob will delight any cook or chef and there’s a couple of stools at the central island for sipping a glass of wine and giving the cook advice!

Alternatively, if you’d like a little or a lot of help then we offer everything from casseroles dropped off ready for the oven to waitress-served in-house catering.

If you have little ones with you, we have three high chairs available should you need them.
