The relaxed dinner is a highlight of any stay at our Country Houses - with tables seating up to 10 and no seating plan, it offers a great opportunity to get to know fellow guests. There is always a choice of dishes for every course, featuring good British cooking and often local specialities. Vegetarian meals are always available.
All our Country Houses have a well-stocked bar serving beer, wine and spirits.
Enjoy a glass of wine or local beer in the bar before hearing about the next day's walks. After dinner there will be an activity or entertainment which you will be welcome to join. These vary from week to week but could include an illustrated talk about the area, a board games evening or a night of dancing in our country barn. On other evenings you can take part in other organised activities or simply relax in the house.
Many of our Leisure Activities holidays continue into the evening with programmed sessions. Other holidays will have the evenings free, and you will be welcome to join in other social activities that may be happening in the house.
On our Guided Walking for Families the evening activities will be geared towards children of all ages.
We offer a range of evenings focusing on the local area, including an evening meal at the famous Yew Tree Farm and a talk from a local speaker; weather permitting there’ll also be a lakeside picnic in the grounds on one evening, or why not chat with other guests and leaders in the bar.
Guests on Freedom Breaks which are scheduled alongside Guided Walking holidays are entirely welcome to join in the organised evening activities. Please note, not all Freedom Breaks will be with these holidays – if the evening activities are important to you, please check before booking.
Depending on your travel dates, there may be activities on offer in the house in the evening which you are welcome to take part in.
