Friendly helpful staff (owner?)- working very hard doing the boats and serving customers, and polite young lad helping him; we took a boat out and then had a drink looking over the gorgeous view. Idyllic location, mix of boating and lovely treats for morning or afternoon tea/coffee break, quirky 'gypsy' caravan decoration. A lovely spot.(You can only eat food purchased... More

After walking around the Lake, we stopped here for a coffee and cream scones. It was tasty and the scenery nice, with a swan out of the water ignoring people and dog. Covered area and garden with tables but no inside sitting.

We stumbled upon this place inadvertently while on a walk along the lake as it started to pour with rain. It was a great decision as the setting is tranquil with great views of the boats and the lake. The selection of teas was high quality and they also had some nice Italian sweet treats which we enjoyed. Great hidden... More

Visited Grasmere on a Monday morning in mid-September and we were rewarded with the most glorious of weather. When we walked down to the lake from the village, we came across The Faeryland Café. When we were sat out in the garden watching the rowers on the lake in the rowing boats, we were actually getting burnt by the sun.... More

Great little stop to have tea and scone, also fantastic mulled apple juice. Combined with boat ride in a beaut October sunny day £15 for hour, made our couple of days special. The owner simply lovely and helpful! Recommend a visit in this lovely scenic lake!

Such an idyllic spot - just a walk down the road from Grasmere you can't help but be delighted by Faeryland. The views are fantastic - you can take your sweetheart out on a rowing boat around the lake and then have tea, coffee and cake while watching the Swans. The tea is superb and my pot contained three and... More

The Faery Tearooms are a short walk from Grasmere village (although there are limited car parking spaces there). You can hire rowing boats by the hour and they give you an wonderful alternative view of Grasmere and the surrounding mountains. After your rowing you can rest at he tea shop that has an amazing variety of teas. Highly recommended.

This is a gorgeous spot for a stop for a cup of tea while walking around Grassmere... Little row boats pulled up on the beach, tables down almost to the waters edge.... Shame about all the rules, no toilet stops til you've paid, dogs on leads, children to be well behaved, return your tray, no paddling in the water... Other... More

This place clearly picks up a lot of business because of it's lovely lakeside spot but thisdoesn't make up for the poor customer attitude. Signs ask you to clear your own dishes and take them back to the serving hatch; there appeared to be 4 staff standing around chatting. I was told the toilets couldn't be used because the septic...

I love it here, we have been going for years and it never fails to stun me with how beautiful it is. I think the owner can be a bit misread by people as he obviously has quite a dry wit. Yes perhaps if he didn't have one of the most stunning spots in the world he may have to... More
