The Bar, Events & Catering

The Estate is fully licensed and Catering can be arranged for a Special Event (multiple or linked cottages only)

Award Winning, Luxurious, 5 Star, Self-catering Accommodation

The Hyning Estate provides some of the very best self-catering accommodation in The Lake District & Cumbria. The Estate doesn't have its own restaurant but we are blessed with an abundance of amazing Places to Eat out in the surrounding area (just follow the link).

The Bar / Reception

Requests for coffee, local bottled Ales and wines and a growing interest in walking and other activities have all triggered the redefinition of The Bar in a new location, with a changed focus and longer opening hours.

Coffee and drinks are now available from the Bar in Reception where you can sit and plan your day whilst browsing local guides & maps (a printer / copier is also available). We roast our own "green" Arabica Coffee to create a rich chocolatey Americano, Espresso, Cappuccino, Macchiato or Latte so why not try a mug ... or take one out with you?

When you return in the afternoon you can enjoy a soft drink or a glass of wine or local Ale. We are fully licensed to serve alcohol. Wines and beers can also be purchased to take back to your cottage at any time during Reception hours (but must be consumed on the Estate). We are not open to non-residents.

One evening during the week the mood changes and the Bar becomes its own "Snug" with candles and low lighting (& the stove lit during the winter) with "Music in The Bar" - a selection of memorable concerts from great Bands and Artists - do help us choose what to put on! We will also do our best to open on a particular evening "By Request" - but please let us know well in advance so we can publicise the event for the benefit of others.

A large monitor in the window provides information on opening, local events and other important information.

For the 2017 summer holiday season we plan to create an outdoor seating area around Reception with heaters and canopies where you'll be able to enjoy a drink outside during the longer summer days.

We can't compete on price with the Supermarkets but we do offer a good choice of local beers and Estate-roasted coffees. Please note that the Bar is closed when the owners are away.

Catering for an Event

A well-equipped kitchen enables us to cater for a Party, Event, Reunion, Group, or special occasion. It’s not cost-effective for us to cater for small numbers of people and each event is bespoke so we only cook to order (catering must be agreed before booking the accommodation). We use fresh local organic ingredients where possible and we make our own sauces containing freshly ground spices, chopped roots & leaves. Our salads and dressings have a Mediterranean feel with basil, garlic, aromatic oils and vinegar dressings. We can provide a range of ideas & prices for both meat eaters and vegetarians alike.

Catering is generally only provided in Hall Beck Cottage / Hyning House as this has the necessary dining capacity and ease of access to our kitchen.
