Local and specialist suppliers
We are incredibly lucky here in Cumbria to have some of the most exquisite products.
Check out some of our fantastic suppliers....
Local fresh fish from C&G Neve in Fleetwood. They have their own fleet of fishing boats and deliver pretty much daily. We also use Cartmel Valley Smokehouse for great smoked fish.
Savin Hill is a great local farm and butchers specialising in slow growing tradional native breed pork, beef and lamb. Their animal welfare standards are exceptional. Their Cumberland sausages are just fantastic.
We also use Cumbrian Fellbred for our amazing steaks, duck and chicken and Airey's Herdwick lamb is legendary here at the Knoll. Both are excellent butchers sourcing only from the Cumbrian Fells.
New for 2013 will be our partnership with the Cartmel cheese company. They will be providing us with high quality local and regional Bristish cheeses.
Hawkshead Relish Company supply us with great jams, chutneys and relishes although we do produce many of our own jams, marmelades and chutneys. However, these products are fantastic.
Our toiletries are provided by the Bath House in Sedbergh. The products are made in Cumbria using natural and organic ingredients. It's absolutlely wonderful and we're thrilled with the feedback so far from our guests.
Our regular 'staples' come from our grocery supplier W McLure based in Windermere. A great local company providing us with local fruit and vegetables along with milk, cream yoghurt and a range of other regular items. We also use Howbarrow Farm for many other organic vegetables and fruit in season.
Our daily bread is supplied by Grange Bakery, a lovely local bakery supplying fresh bread and bakery. We do try to make our own but in honesty, Jen's regular bread for toasting does rather fall short!!!!
