We all need good friends. Christmas is the perfect time to tell them how much they are valued and appreciated.
English Lakes Vouchers open the door to fun times together, perhaps a touch of macho bromance, a little luxurious pampering or just a catch up over coffee and cakes.
The majority of our Christmas suggestions can be accessed through English Lakes monetary vouchers – look out for the green 'M' in the guide. But we also have specific experience gift vouchers denoted with the package icon shown below.
For that memorable friends get together – special birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, or just gathering your nearest and dearest around you for an intimate celebration. Undermillbeck is a cosy private dining room with inglenook fire that seats up to twenty people. So, whether a celebration for two or twenty, we have the perfect space for you.
