And as the month was coming to an end… we saw this rainbow emerge over the park, and it brought smiles to all our faces.
2017 has a chance to be a wonderful year.
What’s on in February
A busy February, for those of our guests who want to get involved, is completely possible.
Eating out in February
Ulverston’s Coronation Hall becomes Currynation Hall in support of St Mary’s Hospice on Friday the 3rd from 5 to 10pm. Admission is £10 which also buys you a curry and a drink, and live music and real ale will be on hand – as well as the Hospice Chutney Challenge. You can book your ticket here!
The Pheasant Inn at Allithwaite has developed a reputation for great nights out with splendid food and fantastic entertainment. This month on Friday the 10th from 8pm they’re holding a Valentine Cabaret Night with Duncan Heather performing and a three-course meal – but don’t delay. Pre-orders and deposit are needed one week in advance.
A particular favourite – the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway Fish Supper returns! Departure from Ravenglass station is at 6pm on the 17th, where you’ll be swept up to Fellbites Café for your delicious fish and chip supper. Tickets are £10.50 and dinner is included.
