Lakes lovers can get their fix of the National Park 

LAKE District businesses have joined forces to produce a festive hamper for frustrated Lakes lovers unable to visit the national park due to Covid-enforced lockdowns.

Packed full of mouth-watering treats from a number of artisan companies, the hampers have been hailed as the perfect Christmas gift for stuck-at-home lovers of the outdoors.

Penningtons Coffee Roaster and Tea Merchant, the company behind the collaboration, is offering inclusive UK delivery on the delectable seven-piece ensemble, with stock already in demand.

Gina Pennington, a director of the business, said: “We know there are so many people who would normally have spent time in the Lake District in the run-up to Christmas, but will not be able to do so because of Covid restrictions.

“It is such a magical place at this time of year and we wanted to do something which, whilst not a substitute for fine Lakeland air and scenery, invokes a taste of the Lake District in a different way.

“We have collaborated with some fantastic businesses to put together this hamper of festive joy and feel it would make the perfect gift for Lakes lovers yearning for their favourite place.”

The Westmorland hamper includes two different 250g house blend ground coffees from Penningtons, a box of Fine Lakeland tea bags, chocolate covered mint cake from Quiggins, chutney and jam from the kitchen of Cumbrian Delights and a rich rum, plum and chocolate cake from the Ginger Bakers.

It costs £54.99 including mainland UK delivery and can be ordered by visiting penningtonscoffee.co.uk
