Who are we?

 Bampton Shop & Tea Room is a small shop with a community Post Office, plus a 12-seat tea room and two-room bed and breakfast, in the delightful village of Bampton, near Haweswater in the Lake District. The shop is open daily, offering newspapers, groceries, essentials and sundries and the Post Office is open on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
The tea room is open for hot and cold drinks and homemade cakes on Monday to Wednesday mornings. From Thursday to Saturday, we're open all day, serving light snacks, soups and sandwiches. If you'd like to come and stay,  give us  a call or email  to check bed and breakfast availability – this is a great area for walkers, with all sorts of attractions to discover and explore.
We are dog friendly, too. We are listed on Dog Friendly Lakes and  Dotty 4 Paws, and your canine companions are welcome in the shop and tea room. We also allow dogs in one of our b&b rooms. 

Where are we?

We're in the beautiful Lowther Valley in Cumbria, near the foot of Haweswater and close to the valley of Riggindale on the doorstep of some of Lakeland's finest mountains, including High Street, Mardale Ill Bell, and Harter Fell. This is a lovely area for walking, wildlife and scenery. We love the fact that we live in one of the most beautiful, but one of the quietest, corners of the Lake District National Park. 

So why not come for a visit and say hello? We'll put the kettle on for you, and there might even be some of Olivia's infamous chocolate brownie or millionaire's shortbread on the go! Or stay the night and make a memorable mini-break out of it!
