Lake District Activity Breaks

Activity Breaks in the Lakes

The Lake District is the Adventure Capital of the UK… the perfect holiday destination if you like a little action and adventure. Whether you are a novice climber that’s keen to learn the ropes or an adrenaline junkie, we have something to suit all abilities.

We have teamed up with Kong Adventure to offer our guests 3 activities for the price of 2 when staying at one of our Lake District hotels.

If you’d like to have a go at any of these activities, but have never done it before, then this is for you. Kong Adventure instructors will guide you and help you develop your new skills, during a fun session where all equipment will be provided.

Ice Climbing… Can you handle the cold?
Learn the skills to climb indoor safely, then tackle the incredible Ice Wall! Your instructor will teach you how to ice climb using ice axes and crampons whilst improving upon your new skills. This is a fantastic chance to try a true extreme sport in a safe and controlled environment.

Ice Climbing in the Lake District Price: £35 // Duration: 1.5 hours

Indoor Climbing… Learn the ropes
If you have never climbed before, but want to learn to how then this is for you. Once you have achieved the safety standard, you can then spend the rest of the day climbing unsupervised, for no extra charge.
