Near Windermere is the town of Bowness and a hotel in the town, The Lendeth Howe Country House, have said that they will be celebrating National Walking Month, which is this month, by giving their guests access to the enormous outdoor playground in the area. This is being organised through the Lake District Experiences Package.
Beatrix Potter once owned this hotel and it is a delightful location for a stay away from home. The hotel of also teamed up with Rob Coles, an outdoor activity instructor, who is going to take some of the guests on excellent adventures through the Lake District. The area is perfectly suited for people who just want to go for a gentle hike, or those who are looking to get the adrenaline pumping a bit more.
The packages will be available year-round and provide guests with a unique opportunity to get to know more about the Lake District landscape, under the watchful eye and in the safe hands of an outdoor expert.
Lindeth Howe is an ideal base for anyone wishing to give the country’s Adventure Capital a go, boasting leisure facilities which can soothe away the muscle aches through a dip in the indoor pool, or a good massage in the therapy and treatment rooms. Its position on a hill overlooking Lake Windermere places it at the heart of the southern Lake District, which offers a variety of locations in which to go walking in the wild.
Heading out for a day with Rob Coles is a fabulous way to punctuate a stay at the welcoming 4-star hotel and an ideal means through which anyone unfamiliar with Lake District terrain or locations can ease themselves into the outdoor action. Rob can tailor activities to suit fitness levels and guests’ wishes, whether that entails walking the fells to bag some spectacular views, or taking them up to the top of mighty Helvellyn via the exhilarating Striding Edge.
A guided day out costs £150 for a full day for two people, or £220 for four. Lindeth Howe has also created an introductory offer, to give guests a taste of the walking and outdoor activities that can be enjoyed, as well as the accommodation and experience that the hotel can provide. This costs £160 per person for one night’s dinner, bed and breakfast, plus a day out walking or engaging in other pursuits with the guidance of Rob Coles. This price is based on two people sharing a room.
The combination of fresh air and calorie burning can soon work up an appetite, which is easily satisfied by a hotel with a 2 AA Rosette dining room and an acclaimed chef, Marc Guibert. Those departing for a day’s activities can be fuelled up by a full Cumbrian breakfast and then return after their exertions to enjoy a five-course dinner served in the award-winning restaurant.
