We were going to write a blog post for November about Bonfire Night events in Brigsteer and the Kendal, Crosthwaite & Sizergh areas but as we come to post this, local events are either cancelled or in a state of hiatus. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll keep you updated as we find the latest on these.
Instead, and given the current situation, we thought we’d highlight a few days out and activities, available around the Wheatsheaf Inn over the winter period. Many can be done as small groups, some are more suited to individuals; all can be enhanced by starting, finishing or including within them a little light refreshment… obviously.
For example, in our October post, we talked about how we welcome dogs and highlighted a few dog friendly walks in the area. If that’s you, then you can still read that article, do the walk and bring your pooch for some post perambulation pampering.
However, as the nights get longer and the days cooler, we thought we’d highlight a few of our favourite winter activities and some that our regular visitors like to do when they visit the Wheatsheaf Inn too.
Things to do in Brigsteer throughout winter
Winter activities abound in and around the Brigsteer & Kendal area. Walking in the fells aside, there is loads to do for the active and those looking for a little R&R. For instance we’re practically surrounded by Golf Courses at; Beckside, Kendal & Grange Over Sands. If you’re looking for something more weather proof then check out the Lakeland Arts website, where you’ll find a host of inside things to do in winter.
Then there’s the National Trust properties, both on our doorstep and a short drive away. Sizergh Castle for instance (a couple of miles from our front door) is open throughout the year with indoor and relatively sheltered outdoor options to keep you busy.
So, there you go. If you’re lucky enough to find a Halloween or Bonfire Night party near Brigsteer, to kick off the early part of the festive season, we’ll be here if you’d like to book a table and make night of it.
If however, the current situation precludes that, then perhaps you’ll think of us and pop in when you’re enjoying the great outdoors and the best that winter has to offer in Lake District.
