Large group activities

A large holiday home in the Lake District makes the perfect base for a wide range of activities. It will come as no surprise that the majority of people who visit the Lake District do so in order to take to the outdoors. Walking with a large group of people is great fun and offers you the opportunity to have a good old natter, while getting some exercise and experiencing the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you. One of the most popular walks is the Old Man of Coniston – this 8 mile hike that takes you up to a height of 1000 meters will reward you with fantastic views and once completed, you’ll enjoy a well deserved drink.

There are, however, plenty more activities for you to choose from, for example, you could charter a yacht, take to one of the wonderful lakes in style with OB Sailings “have a go sessions” and learn the basics of sailing.

In contrast, conquer your fear of heights at Go Ape, where high wires and zip lines are the order of the day. Alternatively, you could split up and try different activities in smaller groups, then meet back in the evening to compare notes and get the most out of everyone’s holiday.

Once you arrive back at your holiday home, why not take full advantage of the space by taking a stroll around a private garden before planning a dinner party. What better way to end your day than by cooking a delicious meal for your family and friends? After serving an aperitif, light some candles, gather around the dining table and feast on local delicacies.

After dinner it could be fun to all play a game – Charades is often a winner and works well with large groups, however, if you fancy being a little more adventurous, then try something new; how about Four on a Couch, a strategic memory game? For more ideas click here or visit our blog for ideas and tips about days out and places to visit.

If eating out is on the agenda, then you will have a multitude of fine options from which to choose. The Lake District is quickly becoming a gastronomic gold mine and finding something to suit both your taste and budget is easy. The Pheasant Inn at Bassenthwaite Lake, Cockermouth, has a very good reputation and has a formal restaurant and a less formal bistro. Both serve good food and offer private dining for up to twenty people. The menu typically features some local produce, for example, potted local shrimps from Silloth, Saddleback pork and fell bred lamb. After dinner you could have a drink in the two hundred year old bar where guests mix with local people who still consider The Pheasant as their local pub. The bar also serves lunch and is dog friendly.
