Food in the Wild


How often is lunch or afternoon tea a truly memorable experience. We have, over the years, managed this for hundreds of people. Either through taking afternoon tea to a high mountain location or teaching you to cook you own three-course meal with traditional fire techniques - assuming you master the fire lighting element.

Just to let you know we love our food - think chocolate eclairs for afternoon tea and wood-fired pizza for bushcraft. This is definitely not "Get me out of here!” food.

One for everyone, an  afternoon tea overlooking Windermere on the top of Gummers How.  We bring the picnic blankets and the goody platters and tea more...

A bit more of a challenging walk up Coniston old man with a stop Goats water or Levers water for Afternoon tea. Followed by a summit attempt more...
