Win a Weekend in The Lakes

At The Climbers Shop, we are very privileged to live and work in the Lake District, one of the most beautiful places in the country (in our opinion) and so we would like to offer you the chance to come up and share some of the beauty with us and spend a weekend enjoying all that the Lake District can offer you, namely, spectacular scenery and great outdoor activities. We are therefore running a competition to win a weekend for two staying in a luxurious bell tent (complete with sofa’s and fire!) and to get out with a trained outdoor instructor who will tailor make a day in the mountains just for you!

During your fabulous break in the Lake District, you will stay in a luxurious bell tent from Long Valley Yurts on one of their serene and picturesque campsites. Unlike normal camping, you will not need to bring tonnes of equipment with you, Long Valley have equipped each tent with sofas, stoves, bean bags, rugs, working kitchen, solar lighting, plus many other little touches that make your stay in your bell tent a comfortable and pleasurable experience.


After a peaceful night in your glamping tent, you will then be treated to a day of outdoor activities with professional Instructor Tim Lofthouse. an experienced and capable climber, Tim will be happy to tailor a day of mountainous activities to suit your needs, be it a leisurely stroll through the dramatic scenery of the Lakes or an attempt of a gripped E2 route that you have always had your eye on. As it will just be you, your companion and Tim, the day is yours to do as you want. Take advantage of the fact that you have a knowledgeable instructor to guide you.

Montane-logo4Whilst out on the hill with Tim Lofthouse, you will also get to test out a range of outdoor clothing provided by premium clothing specialists Montane. Designers of some of the best walking and climbing gear to come out over the last few years, Montane have an exceptional heritage in outdoor gear and you can rest assured that, whatever the weather, you will go home comfortable and happy. Not only will you be kitted out for the day in all the latest outdoor gear from Montane but they have also agreed to let you keep one of the garments you test. So, you will get to put it through it’s paces before deciding on what to keep – something that you rarely get to do when buying normally!
