Women’s Activity Week

Into the hills with you! 

There’ll be no military people screaming at you to do push-ups in puddles or throwing you around an assault course. But there will be some early starts and stuff happening before breakfast, some exercise that’ll maybe stretch you a little bit, plus a good range of activities throughout the week. There are introductions to hill walking, Nordic walking and perhaps some aerobics and circuit training, as well as some gentle yoga and Pilates sessions. A fun, non-competitive multi-activity week.

 

The hill walks will be more than a walk in the park but won’t be a race or a struggle to the peaks. The Nordic walking will get you using the muscles of your upper body as well as those in your legs,and a little pre-breakfast exercise will get the blood flowing.

 

The yoga and Pilates activities will give you a break from all the fresh air of the great outdoors and a little movement and relaxation therapy. Some hardier souls may even take to the lake for a bracing morning plunge in the tranquil waters of Buttermere.

 

For others, there are always Ruby’s freshly baked cakes each day to balance the more active parts of the programme. As well as the cakes, there’s some good locally sourced and home cooked food, hot power showers, a comfy bed and somewhere to plug in your hairdryer. It’ll do wonders for your mind, body and spirit. Above all, you will have the chance to be yourself and share experiences with a group of supportive and like-minded women. Be prepared for a lot of fun, bonding, storytelling and banter!

  • Accommodation
    Hassness Country House 

    Hassness Country House provides a welcoming and peaceful atmosphere for each and every guest. All our bedrooms have stunning views of the rugged and imposing hillsides across the water. Looking out across the lake on a still and sunny morning from your room is truly a special sight. At Hassness you’ll take a step back from the frantic world beyond the fells.  It’s far enough away yet convenient for the main tourist hubs of Keswick; this is a quieter, less trodden part of the Lake District with dramatic and tranquil scenery. Managers Carole & Brian will make you feel welcome. We know you’ll love it!

    The lounge at Hassness is a delightful place to relax, with a large picture window looking out across the lake. Comfortable and welcoming, it’s a great place to enjoy your own company or that of your fellow guests.

    Accommodation is in very comfortable twin, double and single rooms, all of which have lakeside views. Bathroom facilities are shared but plentiful - there are five modern high powered shower rooms, which cater for a full house of people comfortably. Toiletries are provided together with hairdryers. Towels (both hand & bath) are provided for each guest. Or you could always take a bracing pre-breakfast dip in the lake!

    Hassness House offers a retreat from today’s always connected world. There's no TV, no phones in the rooms, and no mobile reception in this sparsely populated valley of West Cumbria. If you do need to contact the outside world there is a payphone available. There’s no Wi-Fi in the bedrooms, but we do have a Wi-Fi router in the lounge, so if you can’t bear to be completely disconnected during your stay, you can fire up your iPad.
