The Wild BoarCrook, Nr Windermere LA23 3NF
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.
With all this and more on offer, our aim is to make sure your holiday is one you won’t forget in a hurry.
How about a truly child friendly castle? If that sounds like the stuff of fairytales, take a look at Augill Castle in Cumbria, sandwiched between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
Simon & Wendy Bennett understand what makes a truly child friendly place to stay because for their children, Oliver & Emily, the castle is home.
Parents have the chance to relax and enjoy their surroundings in relative peace as young visitors to Augill are often adopted by each other as special friends and whisk off to the playroom (in the Drawing Room), the playground or to explore acres of safe family friendly (no barbed wire) acres. Once the fresh air has tired them out there is an extensive library of videos and DVDs, a games room, toys for all ages and a whole castle complete with towers and turrets to explore.
Most bedrooms are big enough to comfortably take two extra beds, all the bathrooms are big, some are enormous and there are catered and self catering options with both adult and children's dietary whims accommodated.
- Truly family-friendly. No out of bounds
- Spacious & flexible accommodation
- Special meal times and menus
- Indoor & outdoor activities for all ages
- No sweaty play zone in the cellar!
- Great for larger family groups
