Get a weekend away booked for your dear old dad, show him how much you appreciate him and pack him off to a perfect Lake District retreat.
We have the perfect spot in mind…Mill Cottage, tucked away in the Lickle Valley, in the small hamlet of Broughton Mills. This traditional idyllic three bedroomed whitewashed cottage is the perfect place for our old man to plot up and discover his inner adventurer with 3 night weekend getaway prices starting from £494.
There are endless adventure options just waiting to be explored:
There are great walks right from the front doorstep including the famous Dunnerdale Horseshoe or a wander through Wallbarrow Gorge and Seathwaite.
He could try his hand at SUP (stand up paddle boarding) with the Coniston Boating Centre, a fantastic way to get out on the water. It’s a chance to see the Lake District from a completely different angle and visit places other people just can get to.
Fly through the air on GoApe’s Zip Trekking adventure on the longest series of zip wires anywhere in the UK, through one of the most beautiful, dramatic forests out there Grizedale - over a total distance of 3km and for two exhilarating hours.
If that sounds way too much like hard work then he could simply plot up in the Blacksmith’s Arms, a staggering 200 metres from the cottage and work his way through a selection of the top award winning local tipples on tap…
