We all need a holiday! The Lake District is a wonderful place to escape to and the ideal place to put the turbulent 12 months behind us.

This is your chance to catch up with old friends, make new ones and have a relaxing 6-day ‘staycation’ in the UKs  ‘Lakes & Mountains’. Known for its glacial ribbon lakes, rugged fell mountains and historic literary associations around the  in Market towns of Kendal, Ambleside & Keswick it’s traditional inns, galleries of local art and quaint shops are there to enthrall all vistors.

Great company, great food and a wonderful change of scenery – what more could one want?! All YOU have to do is PACK!

We all need something to look forward to now that Lockdown is easing, especially as so many of our holidays abroad have been cancelled until 2022.  So, if you’ve never ventured into the stunning Lake District, or perhaps just haven’t visited for many years, why not join us on one of our new Solent Events adventure for 2021!

We will be staying at the impressive 4* Castle Green Hotel & Spa, conveniently located near Kendal town centre and the surrounding southern Lake District. The Castle Green Hotel is in such a quiet rural setting, that you will probably want to spend some time relaxing in its beautifully landscaped gardens.

The hotel is just ten-miles from the shore of Windermere, and just over a mile from the centre of Kendal. With a short  10-minute drive to the M6,  exploring the area is easy.

This former Victorian mansion house, with views out towards Kendal Castle, is oozing with typical English character. With its award winning restaurant, lounge bar, pub, health and fitness centre with a pool, gym, steam room, and spa you will find this the perfect place to relax after Lockdown.

The Castle Green Hotel is part of the Legacy Hotels & Resorts group operating in the UK and Southern Spain. This first class  hotel is Kendal’s  only 4* hotel and is set in 14 acres of natural gardens and woodlands, yet is only 10 miles from the fantastic scenery and attractions of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

We will be welcomed by a loyal, friendly team who help to create a unique ambiance, which is constantly recognised by guests and the reason why so many return to the hotel time and time again. In fact, Success Tours’ Australian guests love it here – but because they are unable to come to travel to the UK this year, we have been able to snap their rooms up! Every cloud …. !

The hotel offers every modern comfort throughout the 99  bedrooms with four Executive Suites situated in the old part of the building and two luxurious Herdwick Suites, with views overlooking Kendal Castle and Lakeland Fells. All guest rooms are decorated in a contemporary manner with complimentary wi-fi throughout the hotel for those who need a technology fix.

Our ‘Standard’ rooms are all equipped with Shower (bath available on request); welcome tray including tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits; Hairdryer; Iron & Ironing board available on request; Flat screen TV with Freeview channels; Complimentary Wi-Fi; Complimentary use of Pulse Health & Fitness.

Meals will be taken in the Greenhouse Restaurant, with its contemporary style, views of our landscaped gardens and a theatre window into the kitchen. Alexander’s, a traditional Westmorland Pub is set in the Hotel grounds, offering a more informal choice for traditional ‘pub fayre’ sitting alongside more contemporary dishes as well as a selection of real ales.

Pulse, the Health & Fitness Club boasts a superbly equipped gym, weights room and pool, but if  that sounds too strenuous, a relaxing massage in the Green Rooms Spa may be more suitable to your holiday mood and enjoyment! Residents of the hotel enjoy complimentary use of the pool or can book treatments for the Spa via the Club reception. Fitness classes take place daily, and personal training sessions are available for an additional charge. There is a small swimming pool and a steam room. At the spa, you can indulge yourself with one of a number of treatments that include massages, facials, and scrubs.

The Greenhouse Restaurant has been awarded two AA rosettes and is open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner. The restaurant boasts of an open kitchen and views to the garden. A ‘tasting menu’ (not included in our package) celebrates the very best of Cumbrian produce, whilst the main menu has a strong local influence too.

The Greenhouse Lounge and Bar features cosy booths, open fires and a menu that includes light bites and scrumptious mains, as well as cocktails & coffees. For ale fans, Alexanders is worth a visit. This perfect little English pub is housed in a former stable block within the hotel’s grounds, and is also a very popular place to meet some local residents! Alongside locally brewed ales, there is a great selection of traditional pub grub with a Cumbrian flair.

A variety of included excursions will be offered each day to ensure you enjoy as much as possible of this ‘Area of Natural Beauty’ during our 5-day stay. As most of the attractions were still closed at the time of compiling this tour, I’m afraid the final itinerary will not be known just yet, hence the stated ‘Mystery’ Excursions. We do hope to give you a better idea  before we go though. I have personally visited all the places we are considering, so I know you’ll have a great time!

THE VERY BEST WAY TO TRAVEL is with a trusted, fully escorted, professional & safety conscious company – THAT’S US! It’s EASY to book. It’s EASY to pay. It’s EASY to communicate. Your safety is paramount:

BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE: If this tour is cancelled with the hotel having to close, due to a blip in the Covid-19 Road-Map, a full refund will be offered.
SAFETY: For your peace of mind, and to ensure your safety as much as possible throughout the tour, everyone travelling with Solent Events will have received the 1st Covid vaccine and the hotel will adhere to all Covid-protocols required at the time. 

HOTEL COVID-19 PROTOCOLS The Castle Green Hotel has introduced intensified hygiene & prevention measures with elevated cleanliness protocols to ensure your safety and will continue to do so according to the current guidelines.

You will no doubt appreciate that due to the UK Leisure Industry’s gradual return to normality,
we are having to leave the excursions as a bit of a ‘Mystery Tour’ at this time because attractions may open up at different times, but of course you will still have a fantastic programme to enjoy each day.
