The Ullswater Outdoor Festival 2017 is due to take place from Saturday 23rd September – Sunday 1st October, packed full of guided walks, outdoor adventure and experiences, as well as films and talks that celebrate the great outdoors, with a special focus on Ullswater.
Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? Autumn is only starting, however lots of folk are already dreaming about a white Christmas, with twinkling lights, festive feasts, and the smell of mulled wine. While it might feel really out of place to think about Christmas in mid-September, right now is the perfect time to start planning your festive break or works Christmas party.
Throughout August, you might have seen the following message around our hotels – ‘buy a pint and we’ll donate’. With the aim to raise money for our charity of the year, by encouraging locals and visitors to the area to buy a pint of Cumberland Ale, which has become a firm favourite nationwide and is Jennings Brewery best-selling brand outside the Lake District.
As we say goodbye to summer and look forward to Autumn in the Lake District, we’re reminded of how stunningly beautiful the landscape is. As the trees start to turn to their autumn colours, and the nights get darker, it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy a good dinner party with friends and family.
Daryl Ross, wedding co-ordinator at the Lodore Falls Hotel, has seen a few sheepish encounters at weddings throughout her time at the hotel, and wanted to share her tales with you.
We all enjoy a good meal out, and it can often be nice to try and replicate the dish at home. For that reason we would like to share a recipe from a dish that has proven to be very popular at the Borrowdale Hotel… Torched Mackerel, Gooseberries, Beetroot, Chard Orange and Watercress. Follow our step-by-step recipe and let us know what you think.
A long time ago the Borrowdale Hotel was a seasonal hotel which closed for the winter. Today, times may have changed but there’s a few things that you can still expect to see during a stay with us; a warm welcome, exceptional service and delicious cuisine.
Is it too early to think about Christmas? Some may say YES, however we are over the moon with all the Christmas party night bookings that have been coming in. If you haven’t even thought that far ahead yet, don’t get your tinsel in a tangle… we can take care of everything for you.
We have recently revealed our new function suite and brand-new adjoining conservatory, located at the four-star Lodore Falls Hotel, and we’re delighted with the feedback that we have received from visiting guests and brides. This luxury space is perfect for christenings, family gatherings, weddings, funeral teas and much more… available for up to 120 guests!
