Feed the adrenaline side of you and join the River Deep Mountain High Day Tours crew with all your troops for a taste of freedom and exhilaration.  These fun challenges can fill up your day by taking to the water and enjoying canoeing, kayaking, sailing and even having a go at the fun frustrations of raft building.  Or there is something for the keen trekkers that can opt to either take part in gorge walking, climbing, abseiling, scrambling and walking those famous fells.  You could finish the day with a spot of archery or exploring the lakes on two wheels on their mountain bike routes.  Whether you prefer to be in your trusty old boots, wet suit, helmet or waterproofs you can guarantee you will not be bored with these guys.  If this crew does not float your boat then there are other adventure tour groups that can lead the way and offer up the same kicks for your tribe.  Search for local businesses like, Joint Adventures, Adventure 21 Ltd, Waterpark Lakeland and Summitreks Adventure Centre.

Fancy a spot of off road 4 x 4 driving for a refreshing and intoxicating change, go to Kankku in Windermere, take to the wheel and set off on the beaten track.  Discover the Lakes from a whole new perspective, as the sublime scenery flashes past the windows.  A guided thrill-seeking concoction of the bumps, roughs and tumbles of the Lakes terrain.  Whether it is within the blistering heat or combating torrential rain, just to encounter a knock-your-socks-off challenge like this, is sure to be a spellbinding journey.

Desire a quirkier way to travel on two wheels, then Lakeland Segway Tours is the place you need to be.  Situated by Coniston Lake and with a wide range of tours to choose from, you can cherry-pick whatever suits your fancy and mood.  Ride alongside the wonders of Mother Nature and breathe in the views that will amaze you and make you smile all at once.  One minute you could be going through woodland tracks with the wind whistling in your hair.  Only to be riding by the lake lapping on the shoreline in the next heartbeat, ensuring that there is never a dull moment.  These little transport gadgets are fun, safe and yet another great way to experience the marvels of the Lakes.

Just a note to say we had a brilliant weekend your Holmthwaite was perfect for us. We had an age range from 5 months to 89 year and the layout of the house and facilities were ideal. Thanks for taking such a late booking it was well appreciated. Sandy also did a good job of the meet and greet!
I booked this holiday let for our village book club. There were a few of us but we slotted in nicely due to the size of the place. We loved the local museums and read and discussed the poems of John Ruskin. Loved the views from the rooms and the friendly Coniston folk. The pub grub was excellent, especially the Cumberland sausage. We hope to book next year.
The Hunts
We recommend this holiday home if you have a large party. We stayed with our walking group friends, as we hadn't tackled The Coniston Old Man, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A perfect base, practical and pretty.
