The estates stretch over a range of locations within the Lake District and the rolling hills of the Eden Valley in Cumbria. Whilst we are confident that our guests will enjoy a break in the countryside, the ‘nature’ of the break can vary tremendously. For example, at Melmerby Hall, Kirkbride Hall and Stag Cottage, this may mean just relaxing in the grounds & wandering up to The Village Bakery for some homemade cake and a great cafe latte, others might prefer spending the afternoon dueling in the realistic trenches and forest paintball at Grant’s Maughaby Farm ‘Cumbrian Adventures ‘or paddling for the afternoon in the stream that runs through the wooded grounds of the Hall. There is a range of choice at the different halls and cottages and we would be happy to help our guests plan out activities and offer suggestions for a range of age groups, party sizes and interests.
The following links are to some of the tried and tested really great days out we have had with our friends and family. They are by no means exhaustive but beyond just relaxing with friends & family over a great meal and hiking in the local area, we hope the suggestions listed on this page will help you find some new and fun things to explore.
