After undergoing an extensive refurbishment the The Wild Boar now offers individually designed rooms with some different features such as log fires and iPod docking stations, and still continues to provide the same quality guest experience for which it has built a fine reputation.
Children of all ages are particularly welcome at The Wild Boar, with a range of activities right on our doorstep. The Wild Boar’s 72 acres of private woodland are perfect for anything from a gentle stroll to adventure trails, and also offer a range of organised activities, such as archery and clay pigeon shooting for older children and adults.
We have a children’s club to join called Sam’s Club. Sam is a big cuddly dog who has entertained kids of all ages at English Lakes Hotels, Resorts and Venues for many years. Every child receives a goody bag when they arrive and can choose from Sam’s special menus in the restaurant.
As well as excellent walks, woodland fun, fabulous nearby attractions and the great outdoors of the Lake District, enjoy free access for all the family at Low Wood Bay Leisure Club with regular splash times in a large family pool.
