We recently approached Sara Young from CBA Events to share what they do in the beautiful Lake District and why she loves the area so much... so over to Sara
We consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to live and work in a place that you’re considering, or perhaps have already booked, to come on holiday. We’re blessed each day with the natural landscape, the dramatic changes in the weather, the lakes and mountains and secret locations untouched by some locals let alone visitors.
What we love most are the opportunities for exploring, adventure, family fun or belly laughs with friends, trying something new, developing skills, new experiences, fresh air, getting close to nature, pushing limits, recharging, detoxing and making memories.
At CBA Events @ Graythwaite we offer all these opportunities. It’s your chance to enjoy the Lakes at its best, in the grounds of a 5,000 acre privately owned family estate on the shores of Lake Windermere, with so much to choose from.
Driving our specially designed off-road BORDA approved course in any one of our fleet of Land Rover Defenders offers the best 4x4 driving experience by far! It’s the only one of its kind in the National Park.
For beginners, experienced shooters or mixed ability, we accommodate and guarantee that everyone will have an enjoyable and competitive session with us at our clay pigeon, archery and cross bows shooting range.
The idyllic and gentle setting of Grubbins Point provides the perfect location for paddle boarding, canoeing, swimming, beach and garden games. Simply sit back and let us give you the guided lake tour by RIB. Alternatively, we could forage in the woodland, build shelters and make camp fires.
No experience would be complete without refreshments, served around the fire pit, ranging from tea, coffee and locally produced sweet treats to Lakeland picnics, wild cooking, pizza making, cocktail shaking and nothing but the finest local ingredients in our Cumbrian barbecues.
Allow us to help you make the very most of your time in the Lakes, where we’ll advise, help plan and create you one of the best UK holiday offerings out there.
Combine CBA Events @ Graythwaite with summitting a Wainwright, a brewery tour, a stately home and garden visit, a mooch around a Lakeland village, take in a steam train journey or motor museum visit, or paraglide high above the fells.
A real treat is for us to collect you from your cottage by Land Rover, or by RIB if near the shores of Windermere, where we’ll then escort you to the Estate, returning you home later in the day with perhaps a stop for traditional afternoon tea, a pint of local ale or dinner in one of the many famous eateries.
Everything we do puts you at the heart of our planning, preparation and delivery. We want you to leave having had the very best time with nothing but life long memories and wanting to return for more. “You may leave the Lake District, but once you’ve been, it’ll never leave you …”
