Experiences

We can offer you bespoke personal experiences of life here at The Samling. Our exceptional award winning Wine Cellar, and meticulously curated bar selection are well worth exploring in depth.

ABOUT

Take time with our Sommelier Robert Patla, or Beverages Team to learn more about the worlds of fine wine, or finest spirits and liquors – and how to sensationally combine hem! Satisfy your curiosity or fulfil a dream, we’re happy to help.

And whilst you can relax and just savour our spectacular view from the hotel, we know an astounding range of people who will help you experience the beautiful and historic Lake District in depth.

Deemed a ‘Cultural Landscape’ worthy of Unesco World Heritage status, and simultaneously the UK’s Adventure Capital, we can put you in touch with people who will show you Prehistoric Stone Circles, sites of Arthurian legend, those famous Daffodils, Turner paintings, and where Peter Rabbit was born. Or, you can ice axe your way along precipitous mountain ‘Edges’ with the guidance of the LDNPA’s Winter time Fell Top Assessors. Climb up a series of tumbling waterfalls, (we have great waterfalls), or pootle in a rowing boat on a choice of lakes and meres in the shade of Temperate Rainforest.

We send you a list of activities as part of your booking confirmation, and include full details in your room information on arrival. Take a tour of our world class literary homes – The Wordsworth Trust at Dove Cottage and Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top

Be taken back to the Lakes’ violent Border warring past where the legend of Excalibur was inspired by King Dunmail’s defiant gesture in the face of defeat by the Roman and Scottish armies; and where Mary Queen of Scots was held prisoner at Lowther Castle, (now home to contemporary Dan Pearson Gardens). All predated by a large and active Prehistoric population who practically littered the hilltops with Stone Circles and Henges.

Just ask and we’ll do our best to help you explore.
