The next time enthusiasts lace up their walking boots and head up Helvellyn in the Lake District they can settle down to a bacon sandwich and a cup of hot coffee thanks to two Bristol brothers who have established a cafe on the mountain.

David Holmes was walking past the summit one day when he had a brain wave to open an eatery where people can put down their walking gear for a few minutes and get their strength back, Sky News reported.

Following this, he and his brother Owen went about setting up the venture and were surprised at the levels of business they got from the beginning.

"It's been quite busy. We are just going to see whether it stays like this but we're hoping it will get busier, especially in August," David told the news provider.

A spokesman for the Lake District National Park Authority told Grough that the duo can carry on with the project as a temporary arrangement for 28 days, after which they will need to seek planning permission.
