About us

Our company

We are a local, independent music store dedicated to providing excellent customer service, after-sales support and competitive pricing on a huge range of musical instruments and accessories.

We know choosing an instrument to suit you is like choosing a car; simply being guided by pictures and descriptions isn't practical. It's important to try a range of options, seek advice and get a competitive price. Whilst we do sell online, we only list those items currently in stock in our showroom. We strongly believe that choosing the right instrument involves playing it to make sure it suits your needs. We also think the opportunity to try a few options and ask questions is essential. This philosophy means our customers make informed choices and enjoy their instruments from the moment they leave our store.

  • Top quality products from a number of market leading brands, including: Roland, Kawai, Tanglewood and more.
  • Putting you first through a customers service and advise orientated approach to sales.
  • Internet matched prices, where possible.
  • Close links with local community groups and clubs, including the Penrith Ukulele Club and Lakeland Wind Band.
  • Working collaboratively with local schools and teachers to enhance music education and opportunities in the local area.

What an outstanding service. Brilliant selection of musical instruments and situated in a beautiful part of the Lake District as an added bonus! I visited the shop to find a new piano and received a very warm welcome. I was left in peace to try the instrument with no pressure but those questions I did have were answered expertly. As I wasn't sure about the instrument I arranged to return to try it again but could only make it on a day the shop was closed, so the owner was kind enough to open up for an hour in her own time to allow me to try the instrument again. Because there could be potentially difficult access to my flat, one of the team even travelled a considerable distance to make measurement and check the delivery could go ahead. That level of service is really impressive, I can't speak highly enough of everyone at Lakeland and am very grateful for all of their help. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful Kawai CA97 piano and am also a very happy customer. In future I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Thank you and well done!
