Celebrate Father’s Day in the Lake District

Father’s Day 2021 is coming up on 20th June and there is no finer place to celebrate the super-hero that is your Dad than in the exquisiteness of the Lake District!

Whether he is somewhat of a traditional gent or seeks experiences that will broaden his horizons, we know the way to a man’s heart is through their stomach which is why a Father’s Day meal at one of our 6 Lake District Hotels is the perfect treat this year.

What’s more, Father’s Day is the first official family acknowledgment day where we haven’t been limited by COVID restrictions this year, so why not make it an extra special one with a proper good meal out?!

Father's Day in the Lake District

1)     Hikers Picnic Board at the Skiddaw Hotel

The age-old tradition of afternoon tea often has more feminine connotations and is a treat we would tend to associate with Mother’s Day rather than Father’s Day. However, the genius chefs at the Skiddaw Hotel based in the heart of Keswick’s Market Square have created a savoury-inspired take on afternoon tea which comes in the form of their legendary Hikers Picnic Board!

Complete with all those snacky treats that Dads LOVE including mini beef burgers, Cumbrian ham shank croquettes, fried breaded fish plus more. We think treating your number one man to a Hikers Picnic Board is the perfect way to celebrate this Father’s Day in the Lake District.

£33 for 2 people to share

Served in the Bar & Conservatory
