Gin Tasting Evening

Over the last few years Gin has had a bit of a revival leading to an explosion of micro distilleries each with its own secret recipe.

At Waterhead we have a passion for serving a quality gin and tonic and have a range of premium and boutique gins to give guests maximum choice. We also invite you join us as we host regular gin tasting evenings:

  • Friday 21st October 2016 – Hosted by Vince from Bedrock

If you dine from our dinner menu then the gin tasting is free or if you just want to come and learn more about gin the cost is £10.00 per person to be paid at the time of booking.

Build your own walking package

Fancy coming away for a walking holiday to the Lake District but don't know where to start?

Create a walking package based on your individual requirements.

We can create a walking holiday for you based on your own individual requirements. Perhaps you would like to try walking but don't have the confidence to go it alone, or just want to explore new territory. You just give us your available dates, length of stay and difficulty levels you want to try and we will arrange a guide, transport, packed lunch, and anything else you may need for your time on the fells, and of course, luxurious accommodation and food to return to at Waterhead.

To discuss creating a bespoke package for between 2 and 10 people, call 015394 30705 or email
