5 places left
Yes....we are BACK for 2018! Family Christmas returns in style as we make our location even more awesome than previous years! Danny and Andy will host you in the serenity of Eskdale YHA in the stunning Lake District with its roaring open fire, peaceful location and beautiful lakeland views. Dig out your Christmas Jumper and join us for a fantastic 3 nights over the festive period.
We will have all of the usual laughs, games and a belly or two's full of home cooked food. If you fancy walking, then our setting is perfect for some mountains, hills or just a stroll around the valley. Alternatively, you can set the fire, put your feet up with some mulled wine and read a book or take in a movie on the big screen that we will have for the weekend.
This event truly does enshrine all of the magic of what OutdoorLads does - we dont want anyone to be alone or stuck in the family cycle on Christmas, so get us in your diary and hopefully we will see you there.
What to bring
In addition to your walking gear, you will need a towel, clothes for the hostel and a whole load of Christmas cheer.....dont forget your Christmas jumper too!
Food & drink
Christmas Eve (Arrival): We will welcome you all to the hostel with some mince pies and the smell of mulled wine on the hob. The perfect start to Christmas.
Christmas Eve (Dinner): We will have the usual OutdoorLads buffet so bring an item for a one or two people to share but don't bring too much; we like to avoid too much wastage of food wherever possible. Think about home cooking something, it always tastes so much better.
Christmas Day Brunch: Served from 11.00am, this will include Poached or Scrambled Egg served with your choice of Salmon, Mushrooms or Bacon. All washed down with a glass of Bucks Fizz. Cereals and toast will be available if anyone wants them too.
Christmas Day Evening: Starting with some tantalising Amuse Bouche, we will serve a full Turkey Roast with all the trimmings and a glass of Prosecco to boot (dietary alternatives will be provided)
Christmas Day Night: We can lay out any leftovers from lunch as is traditional for Christmas Day
Boxing Day Breakfast: A selection of cereals, toast, fruit, yoghurts and pastries will be available for you to enjoy.
Boxing Day Lunch: You will need your own packed lunches for our day walk or other activities. We may be limited on fridge space but be aware that its a fair drive to the nearest shop.....you could always use up any leftover buffet food from Christmas Eve :)
Boxing Day Dinner: We will prepare a quality three course meal for your delight, with dietary requirments catered for where required.
27th December Breakfast: A selection of cereals, toast, fruit, yoghurts and pastries will be available for you to enjoy.
