  • What’s happening during our stay?

    Check out our Events Calendar. There may be some activities or events that interest you or may affect your stay. There’s plenty to do/see/play through-out the year at Blaithwaite, so there is always something happening and something for you do! Such as woodland walks, family days, craft fayres, treasure hunts etc! Or maybe some guided Outdoor activities for the children to attend, so you can make the most of some adult time.

    There are occasions when we have weddings and events, necessary estate activities such as upkeep/ maintenance or livestock / nature needs when we may restrict access within the Estate. We aim to keep this to a minimum but the information is available for you prior to your stay to enable you to make the very best of your stay with us.
