What activities can you do on a Brathay Escape?

Our Escapes can offer a wide range of both onsite and offsite activities to suit any needs.

This could be as simple as finding a quiet place to practice yoga and relax in the beautiful natural environment here at our Lake District centre or it could be a more daring escape into the mountains to take on some of the Lake District's highest peaks.

We are here to give you the escape you want!

Onsite Activities

Onsite at Brathay Hall you can choose from a variety of activities overseen by fully qualified instructors ranging from the physically challenging to cookery, crafts or even promoting mindfulness and wellbeing.

From our estate you can take to the water and enjoy raft building, kayaking, canoeing, challenger canoeing, whaler rowing boats, sailing and even the excitement of wild water swimming.

The Brathay Estate also offers expert guided aerial activities including high ropes, climbing walls, abseiling, zip wire and pamper pole.

Enjoy the natural bounty of the Lake District with bushcraft courses including foraging, wild cookery, crafts, and rewilding.

Or find space to relax and take in the sights with mindfulness, wellbeing and yoga courses.
