8 Father’s Day Activities in the Lake District 2018

Lads, Lassies and Dads in the Lakes

Celebrate Dad’s keen nose for adventure with some family fun in the Lake District this Father’s Day. Here are 5 of the best activities for Father’s Day 2018 in the Lake District.

We have some long weekend availability for Father’s Day cottages too. Contact our Customer Service team on 015394 88855 if you need help booking a cottage for the dates that you are looking for. We offer various extra’s when booking with Lakelovers, such a bike hire, leisure club access and golf vouchers. Our Customer Service team can help with these too. Plus, don’t forget that we’re the top provider of VisitEngland 3-5 star rated dog friendly holiday cottages in the Lakes for pooch Pa Pa’s. Just look out for the purple paw print symbol, a little like this ?.

1.  Live Music & Beer

“an endless build-up, heading for one peak after another — is what a Muse concert sets out to deliver by every means available.” The New York Times

2.  Brewery & Distillery Tours

Hawkshead Brewery is one of the ‘biggest little breweries’ in the country and currently produce 7,000 barrels a year of craft ale. It is the creation of former BBC journalist Alex Brodie who now finds himself on a mission to craft ‘beer from the heart’. 

3.  Traditional Sunday Carvery

The pub scene in the Lake District is burgeoning and today most serve up a splendid Sunday roast. Lakelovers customers receive 10% off the bill at The Brown Horse at Winster, in the Lyth Valley, which we feel will make both Mummy and Daddy happy.

We’d also recommend a “Great British Sunday Lunch” with Lamplighter Dinning Rooms in Windermere, where each table carves their own cut so everyone gets just what they fancy. This is a real family occasion place, where Daddy can let the chef’s know in advance of any family favourites and they will do what they can to accommodate.

“a nostalic sort of happiness” Jay Rayner Guardian Review of The Lamplighter Rooms, 2015

4.  Gears & Throttle

5.  Big Fish, Little Fish 

6.  Action & Adventure



7.  Fishing and Friendship

Esthwaite Water Trout Fishery, Hawkshead is one of the most peaceful locations in the Lakes and their £95 ‘Dad’s and Lad’s beginners course is a special way of spending quality time together to celebrate Father’s Day. This cost includes half-day friendly tuition and all tackle is included. Complete the day with a bite to eat at the Cafe on the Lake, where you can also join the driver-less Osprey Safari boat tour. A leisurely half-mile walk along the ‘nature trail’ will take you to Beatrix Potter’s former home, Hill Top.

Did you know that Esthwaite Water is the home of Beatrix Potter’s beautifully-attired Jeremy Fisher character?
