The Lawler family and friends had a fantastic time at Go Ape Whinlatter recently. We’re proud here in the Lake District to host the highest Go Ape course in the country, and you can even see across to Scotland when you’re flying along the zip wires! Treat yourself to a bit of fun and watch this video of us going ape on the course. It’s right on Winder Hall’s doorstep, and a really excellent way of spending a few hours. If you live locally, why not come and join us for a special Sunday lunch afterwards (not advisable before swinging through the trees!)
We’ve extended Sunday lunch so you don’t have to rush – you can book to dine up to 3 o’clock! Afternoon teas served through the afternoon as well.
There’s so much to do in the beautiful county of Cumbria, whether it’s mountain biking (again we have the longest purpose built trails in the country at Whinlatter and there’s lots of information and help at Cyclewise here) or walking in the beautiful fells. We’re located within 15 minutes drive of five of the most spectacular lakes, including Buttermere which takes your breath away however often you’ve been there!
Oh and let’s not forget fabulous fishing! We’re hoping to open up the beautiful stretch of river at the end of Winder Hall grounds to fishing one of these days, but in the meantime there is a wealth of helpful information on this great site. The list goes on and on: kite surfing at St Bees and Allonby beaches, parascending just about anywhere, canoeing, kayaking….
The Lake District and Cumbria just offer a complete range of sports from gentle leisure to extreme sports. Who needs to holiday abroad when there’s so much to discover here. Come and see us while we’ve got really fantastic Summer short breaks on offer – we’d love to see you!
