Stag, Hen & Birthday Parties

West Lakes Adventure will make the whole experience as easy and stress free as possible.

To help take the stress out of organising a group trip whether it be a stag party, hen party or birthday party, we can help put a package together to include activities, accommodation, food and transport if required.

Eskdale is located in the more remote part of the Lake District, there are five great pubs in the valley, all serving home cooked food, real ale and fine wine ideal for stags, hens and any celebration.

With England's highest mountain - Scafell Pike and deepest lake - Wastwater, you really couldn't be in a better location to experience the outdoors.

The Woolpack Farm is home to West Lakes Adventure and Stay in Eskdale - luxury glamping accommodation. We also work with a number of other accommodation providers and can help you find a venue that suits your group’s needs, and can usually cater for groups of any size.

To give you a little more information about what our offer can include, please see the information below:

Numbers and Ratios

We work on a 1:10 or 1:12 max (depending on activity) client/instructor ratio.

The maximum number of participants for each activity may differ, for example we can cater for 18 paddle boarding, 10 kayaking and 16 canoeing at any one time due to the number of crafts we have, for example larger groups may take part in a multi-craft water sport as part of one large group as we would have several instructors, smaller groups with one instructor would take part in one activity at a time.

What’s Included

The fee includes full liability insurance, provision of highly qualified instructors chosen not just for their professionalism, but also their personality and ability to provide an unforgettable experience. We also provide all the specialist equipment of the highest standard and cleanliness, and if required any personal equipment such as waterproofs, fleece jackets, boots and rucksacks.

Our private programmes are completely bespoke and tailored exclusively to the needs of your group and the individuals taking part. The main benefits of this approach compared to the majority of suppliers who offer a standard ‘off the shelf programme’ are that we build your experience around your needs, your experience is provided exclusively for your party and you don’t have to compromise by joining a larger group of varying ability.
