March News…


As from this weekend (14/15 March), Jumping Jenny will be open seven days a week.

At this time, it looks as though Jumping Jenny will be at Brantwood until the middle of May.

After that time, Jumping Jenny’s famous flans, traybakes, cakes and meals, such as Lasagne, Moussaka etc., will be available direct through this website, so please email with your requirements, and contact details. If it can be posted, we will post it! It could even be delivered to your door, if you live, or are staying, in the South Lakes area.

Just this morning, we received an enquiry from somebody who will be on holiday near Coniston next week:- “……we’re delighted that you will still be running Jumping Jennys
when we are over there next week on the 21st for 4 nights. As we don’t
want to cook, would it be possible to buy something for our suppers that
we could just heat up and have you any suggestions? “.

So, if you are planning a holiday in the Lakes, and would like to enjoy more of the food that you have enjoyed at Jumping Jenny at Brantwood over the last twenty four years, please get in touch.

We are also offering Belmount Hall as a location for the evening parties that we used to host at Jumping Jenny, and which led to our setting up Belmount Hall – see
