Lake District hotel launches activity breaks

The Castle Inn Hotel near Bassenthwaite has joined forces with activity company Active8 to offer a new range of breaks in the Lake District, designed for anyone from groups of friends wanting some fun activities as part of their holiday to businesses looking for away days for employees.

The new breaks launching this summer are designed to combine luxury accommodation with the fun of the outdoors.  Highlights of the breaks include
• Building shelters and making traditional campfires
• Derwentwater cruises
• Gyrocopter flying
• Mountain hiking skills
• The Millican Dalton Experience*
• Human sheep herding**  

Commenting on the new partnership Sarah Milton, conference and events sales manager at the Castle Inn Hotel said: “We’ve teamed up with Active8 to create an entirely new concept for the hotel.  Our plan is to inspire groups of friends or businesses to use our hotel for more than just a standard holiday or typical conference.  With 45 rooms, we have the space to accommodate large numbers of guests and Active8 are a highly experienced company offering an amazing product which perfectly compliments our hotel.”  

John Wilson, owner of Active8 said of the new partnership: “This is an exciting time for us as we’ve been running our courses for many years now but with this tie in with the Castle Inn Hotel we can finally package everything up as a proper break.  We will predominantly be focusing on the Millican Dalton Experience where participants will be taking part in a range of activities such as camp building, raft building, hiking and canoeing.  It’s a great experience for anyone involved, especially those who have an interest in experiencing the Lakes from a truly adventurous angle.”

The breaks are available throughout the summer with minimum numbers required and a minimum two night stay.  Breaks cost from £200 per person.  This price is based on a two night half-board stay at the Castle Inn Hotel with two sharing a standard room.  It includes full use of the hotel facilities and a full day of activity with Active8.  Active8 will work with individual clients to discuss an itinerary and package which best suits their personal requirements.
