Tales from Tythebarn House


Breakfast News

Here at Tythebarn House we’ve seen a new trend in how guests prefer to breakfast.

Last year we saw a big move towards a light ‘Breakfast on a Tray’ and away from the more traditional ‘Full English’. As a result we’re going with the trend and the booking system now features our guests’ favourite ways to start the day, ‘Catering for yourself’ in your own little kitchen and the added extra of ordering ‘Breakfast on a Tray’.

‘Full-English’ will still be available, but you’ll need to call and have a chat to Diana in advance of your arrival date.

‘Breakfast on a Tray’ will be brought to your room, or served on a bright sunny morning in our courtyard Garden Pod.

I’ve been pondering on this for a while…..

There was a beautiful, gentle autumn light on the evening I took this photograph. It was so peaceful and made me think how special it is to share our corner of Cumbria with guests who travel our way and pause for a while.

I’d been pondering on how we need to be kinder to ourselves…..
