Plan the perfect day out at Brockhole this May Half Term

It’s school holiday time again and we can’t wait to be back with some of our most loved activities - lined up especially for you to enjoy this week!

Take a look at some of the adventure activities we have planned and create your own unique day at Brockhole on Windermere this May holiday…


Bullseye - Archery is back! From 28 May right through to 5 June, Dan and his team will be setting up the targets and teaching you how to shoot some arrows. Sessions run for an hour each at 10.30am, 12 noon, 1.15pm, 2.30pm and 3.45pm and cost just £8.00. Don’t forget you can book your places online to guarantee the slot you want.

We are even offering 10% off boat hire for all bookings this May Half Term, simply look out for the discount code on your ticket email!

Join us for some bike boat fun this week, simply hire your bikes from the lake shore team as normal and hop on the bike boat across to Wray Castle and discover just one of the places where Beatrix Potter enjoyed holidays as a child. Windermere Lake Cruises are operating the boat eight times a day from 28 May – 5 June. Find out more and book your places.

We have some great new gifts and product ranges in our shop this season. If you like local produce you won’t want to miss our new Grasmere rum butter and range of gifts from Lakes Distillery, Kin and more. We also have some brand new scents in the Melt candles range and Go Stationery have treated us to their new lines too! Pop in and choose a little something.

  • It’s National Go Canoeing Week 28 May – 5 June!

Canoeing and Kayaking are ever growing in popularity and Go Canoeing Week is the perfect opportunity for newcomers to get into the activity. With a range of activities on offer across England, if you are unfamiliar with the sport you can kick start your experience.

We have lots of locally sourced ingredients making up our varied menu, suitable for all ages and we even have some homemade cakes that you won’t be able to resist.
