LucyCooks – The Cookery School in the Lakes 

Mill Yard, Staveley, Near Kendal, Cumbria – The Lake District, LA8 9LR

LucyCooks is in Staveley, a small village situated midway between Kendal and Windermere on the A591, just 10 minutes from the M6, junction 36. Simply follow the signs into Staveley from either end of the village (please see map). 

Set within the Mill Yard in the centre of the village, LucyCooks is at the rear of the yard, on the banks of the River Kent. Sandwiched between a bakery and a brewery I can think of no better place to have a cookery school! 

Parking is reasonably plentiful and free on site, although if you are coming with a friend, it is advisable that you only bring one vehicle onto the Mill Yard, as it can get congested as the day progresses.

We are very fortunate to be sharing this wonderful site with a host of other excellent innovative businesses, namely Wilf’s Café – a great escape to sample their yummy hot chocolates! 

Real ale your thing… or simply fancy a brewery tour and a beer? Then Hawkshead Brewery is the place to be. Their beer hall (or tap room) is just the place for a bit of a do, where Lucy’s Inside Out Catering can create a selection of fabulous feasts to feed your guests!

If biking is your pleasure, then look no further than Wheelbase who have a huge range of bikes, accessories and clothing to suit every element. (They also sell snowboards and trendy outfits to match!) 

Fallowfield Projects, who beautifully crafted the wonderful wooden staircase at LucyCooks, are cabinet makers and bespoke shopfitters who operate a full joinery manufacturing facility on site.  

In 2006, after a career spanning over twenty years in some of the Lake District’s finest country houses, renowned local chef Patrick Moore started More? Artisan. It was his dream to create real alternatives to mass produced industrial food products so prolific in the modern world. Initially selling his wares exclusively at farmers’ markets, food fairs and events, the overwhelming demand for More? products was the catalyst in founding More? The Artisan Bakery, which can be found directly next to us here at LucyCooks www.moreartisan.co.uk.

Another favourite of LucyCooks which is located on the Mill Yard just a stones throw away from us is Pure Lakes, producing natural skin care that doesn’t cost the earth…worth a visit! www.purelakes.co.uk
