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 & Patio @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 & Patio @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 Cumbrian / Scottish 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 in the main season, and by prior request at any time but subject to our availability, 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 display in the window provides information on opening, local events and other important information.
The Bar Patio @Reception is a sun trap mid-late afternoon and there are heaters and blankets so you can enjoy a drink outside during the longer summer days. A gazebo extends the season on the Patio at Easter, in September and on New Year's Eve (wind permitting).
We can't compete on price with the Supermarkets but we do offer a good choice of Wines, Scottish 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).
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.
We work with selected caterers to provide some great world foods such as a Thai banquets, outdoor Hog Roasts, wood-fired Pizzas or an authentic Texas Smokehouse BBQ.
New Year's Eve
On New Year's Eve the Bar @Reception opens late in order that we can celebrate the New Year with our Guests. Just after midnight there is a short firework display (weather permitting). We use Kimbolton Fireworks, the Supplier of Fireworks and Pyrotechnic Displays (Ceremonies) to the London 2012 Games.
