Why Thomson Hayton Winkley and The Rural Law Practice?

We are so lucky to live and work in beautiful South Cumbria, with the Lake District and the rest of Cumbria, North Yorkshire and North Lancashire on our doorstep!  It is not surprising therefore that we act for many clients who operate rural tourism businesses, helping them to grow and succeed.  Often they have diversified from the family farm.

The area is dependent on tourism for the local economy and we are proud to be part of the supply chain supporting those businesses.  With offices in Kendal, Windermere and Kirkby Lonsdale we cannot help but be in the centre of all things rural tourism related and we are keen to build on our existing strengths and continue to champion our local community.

Our expertise includes caravan, camping and glamping sites, wedding venues and artisan food and drink producers, breweries, and retail outlets such as farm shops to name just a few.  If diversification is something you are planning, or even if you are already established, we are happy to provide guidance and legal help where needed and look forward to working with you.
