Sailing and Canoeing on Ullswater
Sailing and boating on nearby Ullswater is a great day out and the Glenridding Activity Centre caters for all abilities in a range of one day courses, group sails to great picnic locations, Swallows & Amazon days and pirate treasure hunts in canoes!
Fishing in the Lake District and the Eden
The Lake District and the Eden Valley are great places for those who would like to learn how to fish with courses available including all equipment and instruction or with plenty of choice of quiet and beautiful places for those with more experience.
Local Attractions in the Lake District & Eden Valley
This part of the Eden Valley and the Lake District abounds with interesting historic sites including Hadrian’s Wall, stately manors house, ancient topiary gardens and castles to visit. There are shows and open days throughout the year.
Clay Pigeon Shooting
We can offer clay pigeon shooting including coaching for novices to experienced shots within the grounds of Melmerby Hall and Blencow Hall. These sessions are customised to your preferences in terms of time, number of participants and levels of experience.
Quadbiking is one of the most exhilirating activities in the local area – particularly if it is rainy and cold since the wet weather gear will keep you dry and the engine will keep you warm. This is a blast for experienced adults, complete novices and kids/teenagers.
Cumbrian Adventures offers a variety of activities including paintballing, zorb football, clay pigeon shooting, archery, off-road go-karting, a downhill BMX / mountain board course, sumo-suit wrestling and fly fishing.
Cycling on the C2C, nearby quiet routes, and more
Cycles are available for hire from the Rowley Estates on a casual basis. For more serious distance cycling, we recommend renting bicycles from Cycle Active or renting super high quality mountain bikes to use for the day from Cyclewise at Whinlatter Forest.
