Shoot & Stay Experience For A Special Family Birthday

“I booked the shoot and stay experience for my Dad’s 70th Birthday in October 2019 but due to Covid, we’ve only just been able to visit. Four of us went clay pigeon shooting on the Saturday which was brilliant, and special thanks to Jim our instructor who made the experience really enjoyable! We then used the spa for a couple of hours – the view over the lake from the hot tub was spectacular. We had a lovely dinner in the view restaurant, plenty of food which was all delicious. After a great night’s sleep in a dark and quiet room, we had a good breakfast and a lovely walk around the lake. We have been looking forward to this trip for some time and it did not disappoint. We all had a fabulous time at the Coniston & will definitely recommend to family & friends!”
