Take a scenic walk, soak up the views and enjoy a weekend of adventures

Windermere is not only a vibrant, charming town but also home to England’s largest lake. You’ll be staying just over a mile away, so there’s ample opportunity to visit and explore everything Windermere has to offer. Without having to leave the fabulous Wild Boar Inn, you’ll have access to a wealth of activities such as axe throwing and archery. And at the end of the day, you can relax by a roaring fire, sample local ales, fine wine and fantastic dining with your fellow travel buddies.

What's included?

Whether you fancy long walks, new activities or an afternoon in a cosy pub - this trip is for you

Nestled in the ancient Gilpin Valley, The Wild Boar Inn is brimming with character and warmth. From its cosy fireplaces to the rustic interior, you’ll feel right at home the minute you walk through the door. This place offers you the chance to bring out your inner adventurer so make sure to pack a pair of wellies to explore the ancient woodland surrounding the Inn or try your hand at clay pigeon shooting or axe throwing.

If you’re a foodie then there’s plenty for you too with the opportunity to try their alternative afternoon tea, sample a paddle of the Inn’s local ales which are all brewed on site, or you can try out some of their exquisite food served from their Grill & Smokehouse open kitchen.

You and your fellow travellers will have the opportunity to explore the area however you like. Your Tour Guide will take guests on an organised tour of the area stopping off at famous landmarks and attractions depending on what everyone wants to see. Educate yourself at Wray Castle, Lakeland Motor Museum or The Windermere Jetty Museum or visit Beatrix Potter’s Home, where she wrote many of her best-loved books.

But of course, Lake Windermere itself will be a must-see visit. Experience the largest natural lake in England, an ideal base for walks in the Lake District. Whether you’re looking for a short stroll or a longer trek, there are plenty of routes to follow for walkers of all ages and ability levels. Whatever the weather, England’s largest lake and its surrounding area are packed with many things for you to enjoy, whether you want to be active or relaxed.

This is a great trip to bond with new friends, and maybe even find a new hobby. At Solo Breaks, we’re all about creating inclusive experiences for people who want to enjoy their trips without strict itineraries. All you have to do is show up and enjoy yourself – we’ll take care of the rest.

A good night’s kip is really important when you’re travelling, and so is the location. We choose the accommodation to suit the trip, making sure you have a clean, comfortable and well-located place to stay.
Most of our travellers sign-up solo and so we’re all in the same boat … or plane for that matter. Our traveller groups are small, informal and welcoming. While we’re not a singles travel company, 90% of our groups are made up of solo travellers. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your team before we set-off – we run an ice-breaker on Zoom and you’ll also be invited into a WhatsApp group so you can get to know the group before we go. 
We like to keep our group-size small so travellers can get to know each other on the trip. Usually, there are around 5-10 travellers on each trip between the ages of 30-50.
Yes, you can. Around 10% of our group are made up of couples or friends who enjoy socialising and meeting new people. 
Of course! Everything we plan on the itinerary is optional. If you fancy coming along to everything, you’re more than welcome. If you want to dip out any point to relax or do your own thing, that’s completely fine too. 

It’s important for all travellers to arrange their own travel insurance before we set-off. If you need help with travel insurance, give Steve a call and he will advise. 

To secure your place on the trip, we’ll ask for a deposit, which can be made by bank transfer. The final payment for the trip will be due two-weeks before we leave. You’ll find more payment information on each event page.
Payment for your trip can be made online on this website, by bank transfer or you can make payment over the phone by calling Steve Sutherland on: 07845 529 538.

Questions About This Get-Away

Hi, I’m Steve, After spending five years travelling the world, and over a decade organising trips across the UK and Europe, I found the biggest fear around travel was going alone. Booking a group tour with people you don’t know can also feel daunting and so that’s why at Solo Breaks, we organise small group trips so everyone can get to know each other and form life-long friendships. As your host, I’ll be there on every trip to take care of the travel logistics, answer any of your questions, and most importantly, make sure you have an unforgettable experience! If you have any questions about this trip, please get in touch: Click here to connect over WhatsApp or phone me on 07845529538. Thanks Steve
