On Sunday 17th of June, we thank our dads, fathers and papas for all the wonderful ways they have supported and nurtured us over the years. It’s the day we put up with the terrible dad jokes and treat them with a gift, food, affection and activities that they love.
Looking for alternative Father’s day surprises, here are our recommendations:
Kong Adventure, Keswick
Does your dad love adventure and bacon, then this is the place to come!
Kong is offering a free bacon sandwich to fathers. If you're wanting to get out in the air, then try ghyll scrambling, climbing or get out onto the water with a kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. They also offer indoor activities for those more gloomy days, such as indoor caving, climbing or hard play areas.
Address: Heads Rd, Keswick, Cumbria, CA12 5EZ
Did you know the Lakes Distillery has a bistro?
For the weekend of the 15-17th, the Distillery are offering a special menu dedicated to all dads. Not forgetting to try some of their infamous tipples on offer such as their Genesis single malt whiskey. Put the hairs back on anyone’s chest!
Address: The Lakes Distillery, Setmurthy, near Bassenthwaite Lake, Cumbria CA13 9SJ
