A Winter Work-out in the Lake District

Armathwaite Hotel Spa Gym


January is that time of year when many of us make New Year resolutions to get more exercise and burn off those extra calories from Christmas. However, if you are like us, those resolutions rarely make it to the middle of the month! However, if you are having fun being active you are so much more likely to stick at it and here are some of the things you can do whilst here at the Pheasant to keep those healthy habits going.


Merry Christmas from Bassenthwaite Lake

With only a few days to go, we wanted to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at the Pheasant Inn to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.

A Wonderful Winter Walk in the Lake District

One of our all-time favourite walks is up the small but perfectly formed Sale Fell, towering protectively above us here at the Pheasant Inn. This is an easy walk with only a fairly gentle ascent which is ideal at any time of year but especially perfect for a winter walk to blow away the cobwebs and set you up for a glass of something warm at the end.

To start the walk you come out of our front door, pull on your boots and turn left, heading up the road that leads behind us to the left. From there, you walk up the narrow road, gradually gaining height, passing a smattering of houses and maybe even spotting one of our beautiful red squirrels along the way.


Festive Dining with all the trimmings

It’s a most wonderful time for the year and we at the Pheasant Inn love the festive season from the decorations, the carols, getting together with family and friends and of course the lovely food.

From December 1st our traditional Lakeland Inn turns into a winter wonderland with beautiful decorations, the smell of mulled wine, roaring open fires and a delicious festive menu with all the trimmings offering a traditional Christmas experience just as it used to be.
