Lovely coffee and nice atmosphere. Some nice giffts in the shop and an interesting exhibition centre

We took a river cruise up lake Windermere from Bowness and stopped of at Brockhole visitor centre. There were lots of adventurous activities for both adults and children alike. The less adventurous could walk around the gardens and have a game of crazy golf. We had our lunch before rejoining the river cruise up to Ambleside. The cafe was good and a good selection of meals/snacks to keep us going for the rest of the day. There is also a good sized gift shop.

Popped into the cafe for a couple of takeaway coffees while we had a stroll round the grounds. Ordered 2 takeaway coffees from the woman on the til who took our money and directed us to the end of the counter where we would receive our drinks. Stood there for a good 5 minutes before 2 other members of staff appeared and proceeded to have a conversation with each other about who was supposed to be preparing the drinks. When one finally decided to make them the people who were behind us in the queue got their drinks first!! When ours finally arrived they were in cups and I had to explain I asked for takeaway coffees, to which I got a dirty look and a huff as they were swiftly taken away from under my nose. At this point, several other young members of staff appeared from out of the woodwork and stood about looking rather helpless and apathetic. When we finally got our coffees they were so hot they nearly peeled the skin off the inside of mouth. All that waiting about for scalded milk! The cafe was practically empty so lord knows what the situation would be had they been busy. Customer service really needs to be worked on and maybe hire a few members of staff that know what they are doing.

We used to like to call into Brockhole Visitor Centre for a walk and look forward to coffee/cake - but we noticed the last 12 months the quality of food and service does seem to have deteriorated - it is not a cafe we would be excited to visit anymore. There are lovely view over the grounds from parts of the cafe and it is nice to sit outside on the terrace. Note now that as like many places in Cumbria you now have to pay to park to go into grounds or just the cafe/shop
