What a time of the year it is now in the Lake District and Cumbria. New life in popping up everywhere in the form of both flora and fauna are beginning to make an appearance in the form of daffodils and bouncing lambs. In the Lake District and Cumbria with such a large amount of open space and farm land, it’s green and all go for farmers, landowners and those working I the tourism industry thanks to an early Easter.
This is something the owners of Tebay Services Hotel know only too well. The Dunning’s the founders of the award winning Westmorland Limite company (and known as the Westmorland Family) back in 1972 are a extremely well respected farming family. It is from their routes as farmers that the whole Tebay Services Empire grew which now includes the Tebay Services and Hotel, Junction 38 Services, Rheged, Gloucester Services and now Cairn Lodge. At the heart of all of these businesses are high quality food, family values and keeping it local.
So spring for farmers is the busiest, the most fraught but also the most exciting time of the year. It is also an exciting time for chefs of hotels such as Tebay Services Hotel. What better than to be able to know with absolute conviction the high quality of the meat which can’t get any more local. The farm near Orton rears for example lamb and Galloway beef that is used throughout the hotel’s menus.
To celebrate that spring has sprung in this peaceful oasis on the motorway, a real one of its kind, stay in a double or twin room from just £87 bed and breakfast per room when booking 7 days of more in advance.
