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 a ‘darts and dominos’ competition night, an illustrated talk about the River Dove and local area, quizzes or a board games night; alternatively relax in our lounges or bar.
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 family holidays the evening activities will be geared towards children of all ages.
Guests on Country House Breaks which are scheduled alongside Guided Walking holidays are entirely welcome to join in the organised evening activities. Please note, not all Country House 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.
