A Tailormade Lake District Break


7th March 2021

How would you like a tailormade Lake District break? We want to do everything we can to make your stay at Birkdale House a truly memorable one. Our exciting range of Tailormade Services was designed to do just that. From private dining to luxury motorboat hire, outdoor adventures to fell pony treks, our guests are already spoilt for choice.

But over the course of the last few months, we have been looking at how we can make our Tailormade Services even better, how we can make your break in this stunning part of the world even more memorable.

We’ve been busy behind the scenes talking to local businesses, suppliers and producers, and we’re really excited about how much more we can offer our guests when we reopen on 12 April.

Private Dining

We are delighted to be able to offer our guests the services of another notable Lake District chef, Alex Beard.

Alex worked at the iconic Waterside Inn, the flagship 3 Michelin Star restaurant of the Roux family.

Under the guidance of Michel and Alain Roux, Alex honed his culinary skills, developing a deep understanding of the significance of flavour, of attention to detail and of the importance of the customer.

Since his time at the Waterside Inn, Alex has travelled the globe, cooking for celebrities, heads of state and royalty.

From intimate romantic meals to a seven-course tasting menu for ten guests, Alex designs his unique and innovative menus around you. This is luxury fine-dining at its very best.

Spa Treatments

We have exciting news about a range of spa treatments which will make your stay in the Lake District even more relaxing.

From massages to facials, body treatments to manicures, our fully qualified therapists will come to you.

Whether you’re looking for a special treat, or you want to relax after a hard day on the fells, we can offer a treatment tailored to you which you can enjoy in the comfort of Birkdale House.
