A Little History Lesson!


Huttons Chocolate Shop is situated in the Victorian arcade on Crag Brow, Bowness on Windermere and was established in 1901, offering locals and visitors to the Lake District exquisite handmade chocolates, truffles fudge and speciality toffee produced on the premises.

Wonderful stories are told in our delightful shop by some of the more ‘mature’ residents in Windermere of exchanging sugar coupons during the rationing years for bags of Huttons special fudge and ladies earning ‘pin money’ in the 1940s by sticking labels on toffee jars (1d for every jar !)

Almost 120 years later and Huttons is still a thriving family business manufacturing truffles on the premises using original Huttons recipes, ingredients include superior chocolate, fresh local cream and fine liqueurs . Our truffles are filled , dipped and rolled in chocolate splinters individually by hand daily.
