Parties & Celebrations

Anyone can celebrate that special occasion with a glass of bubbly and a good meal with family and friends, but how about giving everyone a really amazing memory to share.

Whether you are approaching a milestone birthday, having a family reunion or merely celebrating that it’s the weekend, we can help you find the right activities for your group.

We are also happy to help you arrange more specific details for your day from a fantastic picnic at the ‘top of the world’ to a fireside afternoon tea at a local country house to an engagement followed by champagne on a gorge walk.

We are happy to discuss any ideas you may have for your celebration activity day and below are some ideas to help get your little grey cells working.

Activity sessions prices have group discounts applied where applicable. Hotel or hostel based activities would be specifically quoted for dependent on group numbers and logistics involved.


Examples of Parties and Celebration Activity Days

Canoeing on Coniston Water

Beginning the day at the South end of Coniston Water you will explore the length of the lake, visiting Peel Island and stopping on the shore for lunch. We will then raft the canoes together and, if the weather is favourable, hoist a sail to continue our journey to the North end of the lake finishing at a country house for a lovely, relaxed afternoon tea.

To celebrate her 50th birthday, Pat McCoy arranged an October weekend away with the girls at the Langdale hotel and spent a day canoeing and abseiling with a packed lunch provided. The weather was a bit ‘exciting’ but a fantastic day was had by all.


Group Activities at your Hotel

Many of the hotels in the Lakes have beautiful gardens and lake frontages that we can take full advantage of by bringing our activities to you. We can set up Archery and teams games on the lawn and Canoeing or Raft Building on the lake shore. This day works particularly well for larger groups who have the sole use of a property.

For her 40th birthday Geraldine Greatbanks arranged a house party at the Langdale Chase Hotel. We provided activities for 30 people on site doing short sessions in Canoeing, Archery and Biking with a pricing structure that enabled her guests to do as little or as much as they wanted.


Scramble and Abseil Day

This Abseiling and Scramble day is a rewarding adventurous, adrenaline packed day! It begins with a 1000ft scramble up Raven Crag, which includes some walking and single pitch climbing - within half an hour you will begin to admire the beautiful views across Coniston and over to Helvellyn. Surrounded by magnificent views at lunch time, there really are some great photo opportunities. For the afternoon, a walk over to Cathedral Quarry which offers the chance to explore old mining caves and tunnels, and it’s 43 meter slab of slate. Once you have completed the challenge of lowering yourself down the rock face, with the adrenaline still pumping, a short walk brings you back to the starting point.
