Bampton shop and tearoom is under new ownership! We hope you like our new website – please explore, and if there's anything you can't find, or if you've any questions, please do get in touch.

what's going on?

Bampton Shop & Tea is a small shop with a community Post Office, plus a 12-seat tearoom 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 is also home to a community Post Office.  
The tearoom is currently open on an ad hoc basis (ie, come in and ask and we'll put the kettle on!), and homemade cakes are available to eat in or take away. If you'd like to come and stay (and why not?!) 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.

Come and visit

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 – 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 on the go! Or stay the night and make a memorable mini-break out of it!
