Secretly Famous™ for…

Being the ultimate gift and pamper emporium.

Wander gently into the picturesque Lakeland village of Hawkshead and one of the first welcoming sights to greet you is Poppi Red, a fantastic display of pink and scarlet among the whitewashed cottages, slate roofs and cobbled streets. You are drawn in by the fantastic colours, seductive sounds of jazz swing, and the enticing smell of freshly ground coffee.

Often in the shop you'll be met by Kim Merrick, proprietor, buyer and inspiration behind Poppi Red. Poppi Red offers the ultimate shopping experience, with cheery staff - all local from the village - and service as it used to be in a beautifully laid out shop. You can meander around and see something different every time you visit.

Partners can relax in the café with a drink and a fresh sandwich or scrummy cakes baked in a local farmhouse. The café is licensed, so on warm days have a glass of wine, beer or a refreshing Pimms; in the winter, enjoy a glass of hot mulled wine.
