Gorges, ghylls and Go Ape

Get up close and personal with fish, amphibians and reptiles at the Lakes Aquarium, trek the trees at Go Ape, or hire canoes at Low Wood. You can stay on site for archery, kayaking or clay-pigeon shooting, or venture out for ghyll-scrambling and gorge-walking, or just a little pampering at the Lakeside Hotel.

Big Days Out

Call up CBA Events for on-site action that includes archery, kayaks, clay-pigeon shooting, bushcraft, llama trekking and 4x4s, or just to get bikes delivered. Shoot some golf at Windermere and Kendal. Ride the trails on four legs with Bigland Equestrian. Or just walk the banks of Windermere from the door.

Go Ape in the trees in Grizedale Forest. Tackle Orrest Head for a short walk to fine views. Try ghyll-scrambling and gorge-walking with Crags Adventures, and follow the stepping stones across Rydal Water to the caves. Or potter the shops at Ambleside and admire Bridge House, built over water to avoid taxes for houses built on land.

Get great mountain views from Wray Castle, or try a botanical treat at Holehird Gardens, offering a colourful display on a sheltered hillside. Take a motorboat out on the lake with Ambleside Waterhead. Or see classic cars and vintage motorbikes at the Lakeland Motor Museum, among 30,000 exhibits.

Settle back for a little indulgence, with pampering at the Lakeside Hotel’s spa and pool, or more of the same at the Swan Hotel at Newby Bridge. Shop for foodie goodies at The Honeypot in Hawkshead, and fine vintages and single malts at Windermere Wine Stores.
