Looking for something a little different to do with the family during the summer holidays? Why not test your navigation skills at Holker Hall & Gardens in Cumbria, with one of their new Geocaching packs?
From Sunday 24th July to Sunday 4th September families can take part in a selection of outdoor activities including Geocaching in the Holker Parkland. Available everyday (except on special event days), packs will include a compass and a beginners guide for those who don’t have a GPS to bring along with them. Follow the clues and coordinates that will lead you to a series of check points and collect special letters. Rearrange the letters to create a word and present it at the Holker kiosk to receive a prize. Don’t forget to leave your own special message at the final checkpoint for future Geocachers to find!

The Ilex Bar & BrasserieOpen for lunches - including a very special Sunday lunch -
This weekend’s damp weather didn’t affect the fiery fun at Holker with a full house for the chilli eating competitions hosted by Darth Naga. A packed Courtyard watched on as 10 competitors (on each day) took part in the lively competition. Saturday’s competition was the most entertaining yet with Darth commenting it was best one he had ever hosted - humorous contestants were encouraged by the lively crowd - with Jordan from Barrow taking centre stage. Joint winners took the trophy on Saturday and Ed Duffy was crowned Sunday’s winner after reaching around 250,000 scovilles.
