We spent a lovely afternoon in a chocolate house called 1657 in your town of Kendal. We were greeted by some lovely staff and also the owners Mr & Mrs Moore. We tasted some excellent chocolate cakes, drinks and sweets in both the shop and the restaurant and we feel that this place should be promoted much more so that other visitors can enjoy the same pleasure.
This would be our personal recommendation for anyone living or visiting Kendal.

Low Sizergh Barn
- Where Quality Comes Naturally
If the thought of tasting naturally prepared and home- made recipe foods makes your mouth water, we have treat in store for you.
If you appreciate handmade crafts or would savour a country tea room with a most unusual view, you will find it all at Low Sizergh Barn.
Home Grown Goodness
When we first opened our 17th century Westmorland stone barn in 1991 to sell our own farm-grownfreshly picked strawberries, we were determined that only the best quality produce would be offered.
Since then the range of goods has grown enormously, but our quest for excellence remains unchanged.
The ever growing number of local customers and holiday makers who return time and time again seem to agree.
In 1997 Low Sizergh Farm was presented with a prestigous Broadoak farming award for our work in enhancing wildlife and landscape conservation.
Low Sizergh Barn gives you chances to sample and enjoy one of the widest ranges of foods in the Lake District.
Our specialist cheese counter offers a mouthwatering array of textures and flavours. Over the years we have sought the best farmhouse cheeses, made to traditional recipes by small farms and dairies all over the British Isles. Just ask for a sample taste, making up your mind could be harder than you think.
Our meat produce offers a tempting display of home cured ham and bacon and succulent sausages. There is smoked salmon and local moorland raised lamb as well as organic free range chickens and turkeys that taste the way Christmas used to all year round.
Home And Away
As you would expect from an old oak timbered barn, there are nooks and crannies everywhere.
Look around and you will see locally prepared pickles and preserves, chutneys and jams. There are fresh fruits and vegetables and free range eggs from our own hens.
