Our Inspector's view

Henrock is set in the stunning Linthwaite House Hotel and enjoys lovely views of the National Park and Windermere. Simon Rogan's team operates here so expect lots of produce from his farm in Cartmel. The restaurant is understated – three rooms in muted, natural tones with a few splashes of colour – very comfortable and thoroughly designed. Beef tartare with light truffle and soy cream, puffed quinoa and farm brassicas is an ideal starter, followed by white Peking duck with Gochujang (Korean red chilli paste) and date croquette, celeriac and bitter chocolate. Chocolate raspberry and peanut tart with Dulcey ice cream is the perfect finisher.

About the area

Discover Cumbria

Cumbria's rugged yet beautiful landscape is best known for the Lake District National Park that sits within its boundaries. It’s famous for Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, and Derwent Water, ‘Queen of the English Lakes'. This beautiful countryside once inspired William Wordsworth and his home, Dove Cottage, in Grasmere is a popular museum. Another place of literary pilgrimage is Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter, located near Windermere. Tom Kitten, Samuel Whiskers and Jemima Puddleduck were all created here.

Much of Cumbria is often overlooked in favour of the Lake Distirct. In the south, the Lune Valley remains as lovely as it was when Turner painted it. The coast is also a secret gem. With its wide cobbled streets, spacious green and views of the Solway Firth, Silloth is a fine Victorian seaside resort. Other towns along this coastline include Whitehaven, Workington and Maryport. Carlisle is well worth a look – once a Roman camp, its red-brick cathedral dates back to the early 12th century and its 11th-century castle was built by William Rufus.
