Out and about

in the heart of the Lake District…

The Lake District is one of the most fantastic locations in the country for walking. If strenuous hill walking is your thing, it’s all there, but there also plenty of opportunities for gentle country strolls with stunning views and, if your party includes a wheelchair or buddy, check out the Miles without Stiles routes. If you want we can arrange private guided walking or pony trekking. Why not try sailing or canoeing on the lake, or indulge in some private fishing lessons, or spend a day shooting, all of which we can arrange for you? We can even provide private flying lessons in a gyrocopter! Or we can arrange for a massage, Pilates or yoga classes in the comfort of the house.
