Low Sizergh Barn
Enjoying the countryside is best done with food and the farm hand in hand. Visitors coming to Cumbria are sure to get to enjoy both of these at the Low Sizergh Barn. Located at the edge of Lake District this family run farm has been open to the public since the 1980’s. What started out as a pick-your-own strawberry business has blossomed into an entire organic farm and a top tourist attraction.
One of the top attractions that draws both locals and tourists to this destination is the Farm Shop. What used to be a 17th Century Westmoreland stone barn has been converted into an award winning store. With three floors of delicious food offerings, crafts and gifts guests are sure to have fun. Visitors can enjoy shopping for fresh produce and other organic food products. These taste far better than commercially produced counterparts and are much healthier. Aside from shopping for food visitors can get o watch the cows during milking time.
The buying doesn’t end with food products. Located in what used to be a barn below and the gallery before the tea shop visitors will find a wide array of handmade items that they can buy. Choices include home and cookware items, gardening paraphernalia, books, baskets, cards, toys and much more. All items being sold are made by local artisans.
At the top of Low Sizergh Barn, guests are welcome to enjoy mouth watering delights. They can enjoy good old farm food like sausages, home baked cakes, bacon and much more. All of these classic country dishes are cooked with the freshest ingredients that come straight from the farm. Whether guests are looking to have an early breakfast, heavy lunch or just tea, they are welcome here.
