Christmas Shopping in The Lake District

11th Dec 2014

We all know that buying Christmas presents can be a challenging task, especially for the person who has everything already! With that in mind, we’ve decided to give you a helping hand with our very own guide to Christmas shopping in the Lake District.

Ambleside
If you are buying presents for the ‘outdoor type’, then we would definitely suggest visiting Ambleside, which has a plethora of outdoor shops. Best is Cunningham’s but everyone knows Gaynor’s which is vast. The Old Court House Gallery is a great place for arts and fine cards. Henry Roberts is terrific for books and maps.

Hawkshead
Hawkshead is a great little car free village which is known for Hawkshead, a less expensive outdoor store. Poppi Red is an intriguing gallery selling lots of red stuff and has its own tea shop. And don’t forget to pop in to Hawkshead Relish. Big things come out of Hawkshead retailing!

Grasmere
Grasmere is a sweet place to shop. Not just because of the famous Gingerbread Shop. Looks good even in the rain. Here you will also find Sam Read’s famous bookshop selling a range of books from Wordsworth’s poetry to Wainwrights guides. Marvellous! Also Herdy’s clean and bright shop is full of ideas for Christmas.

Windermere
Take a trip to Windermere and you will find the great draw that is Lakeland, full of stuff for those who love cooking! In the village is a good little wine and beer shop, Windermere Wines.

Kendal
Kendal is a good size market town. Our favourite shop here is Armstrong Ward near Booths. It sells really tasteful things like Emma Bridgewater, gifts, arty stuff and quality kids’ stuff. Also in Kendal is the Made in Cumbria shop where you can find all things, well, Cumbrian.
