Food & Drink


St Marks Stays is a self-catering kitchen

You have your own fridge freezer (standard kitchen size) and cupboard space for everything. You have full access to our kitchen which has an Aga and a gas hob and a double electric oven. We have most pans, a blender and kitchen equipment for your cooking. We do share the kitchen with you, but cook at different times so you can fully set up to cook in the kitchen.

We provide store room basics for you such as salt, pepper, tin foil, oil etc for your cooking. Free tea, coffee & sugar is included as part of your stay. Plus we can give you free samples of local Hawksheads jam, marmalade, red & brown sauce.

The is a small Spar in Sedbergh and the nearest larger supermarkets are in Kendal. We can happily be here to take in a food delivery for you in advance of your stay if you organise the time slot with us. Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury’s deliver to St Marks Stays. We just ask that you tick to say no plastic bags, because we get left with them and would rather not have more plastic waste.

Local cafes, restaurants and pubs

Sedbergh is 3 miles away so a 5 mins drive, or 1.5 hr walk. We can send you a pdf for cafes, pubs and restaurants in the area and further afield.

Chefs & Caterers
