So Much to Do, So Little Time

As lovely as our lodges are, there’s so much going on in Cumbria that it would be a crime to miss out! Here are just a few activities that you could take part in while you’re with us.

Explore Lake Windermere…

What would a trip to The Lakes be without exploring the region’s largest body of water, Lake Windermere. It can be enjoyed many places, but if you head to Bowness, you’ll be able to jump aboard a boat trip for the ultimate in scenic travel.

…With Some Wild Swimming

Wild swimming the The Lake District is truly one of the most rejuvenating experiences you can have. Swim the Lakes offers a variety of courses for beginners and veterans alike, including guided swims, adventure swim breaks and wetsuit try-on events.

Visit William Wordsworth’s Home…

For any English Literature fans, you can’t go to Grasmere without seeing Wordsworth’s first Lake District home. Packed to the rafters with many of the poet’s actual possessions, perhaps you’ll be inspired to compost something of your own.

…Or Beatrix Potter’s!

If poetry isn’t really your thing, perhaps Beatrix Potter’s house will conjure up something a little more nostalgic. This farmhouse was where many of your favourite stories were born, and you may even recognise some of its features from her illustrations.

Adventure Playground

Brockhole is home to the fantastic Adventure Playground, sure to keep the whole family entertained with its rope walks, slides, swings and zip wires. Picnic areas are situated in over 30 acres of gardens leading down to the lake shore, including Birkett Wood.

Enjoy a Navigation Course

Head to the Hills runs a series of navigation courses in The Lakes that help you have a great day out, explore new areas and stay safe while you’re doing it. Whether you’re just starting out or looking to improve, Head to the Hills will help you get where you’re going.
