Weekly Events At The Mortal Man

Here at Lake District B and B The Mortal Man we take pride in the fact that we have a huge base of repeat customers who come to us from all over the UK time and time again to enjoy this wonderful part of the English countryside. We devote a lot of our time to devising all sorts of regular events to keep people returning and to keep them highly entertained each and every day.

On Tuesdays, for example, we host a really fun jam and open mic session where performers get up on stage to play or sing (for a free drink in return) – and you’re more than welcome to join in, no matter your level of ability. So don’t forget to pack your acoustic guitar to wow the crowds!

Wednesdays is our quiz night, one of the most popular weekly events that we put on. After all, who doesn’t love a pub quiz? It only costs £2 each to take part and whichever team wins at the end takes home the pot – which can get up to around £50 so it’s definitely worth joining in!

If poetry’s more your style, then you need to make sure you book Lake District accommodation to coincide with a Thursday night which is our Spoken Word Night. All performers get a free drink and you’ll be able to enjoy stories, poems and jokes told around the log fire well into the evening. What could be better?

And finally, on Sundays we have a scheduled local performer that comes in to keep you all entertained so you’ll get to know some of the finest musicians and acts that the Lake District has to offer.

So now you’ve got all that information, when will you be coming to see us? We’re always looking for suggestions and bright ideas to make our pub a better place, so if you’ve got any of your own, give us a shout!

Take Care When Walking In The Lakes

We’ve been enjoying something of a heatwave here in the UK over the last week or so, with temperatures reaching an impressive 35 degrees C in some parts of the country – which has no doubt inspired many of you out there to explore the countryside from your Lake District hotels.

However, we here at The Mortal Man would urge you all to be as careful as you can when out walking in this beautiful part of the country when the weather is as hot as it has been. Make sure you leave your Lake District B&B with plenty of water and some food for energy, as well as your phone so you can call for help if need be. Always tell someone where you’re going and what time you expect to be back as well.

According to a report in the News & Star, a 23-year-old walker who had been enjoying a hike near Scafell Pike with her boyfriend suffered from severe dehydration and heat exhaustion because of the soaring temperatures.

As a result, the Great North Air Ambulance Service’s Pride of Cumbria helicopter was called out, with a doctor and paramedic on board, before the young woman was airlifted to Whitehaven’s West Cumberland Hospital.

We were relieved to hear that the woman arrived at the hospital in a stable condition but this incident just goes to show how jolly careful you have to be when out walking, particularly if the weather is hot and you’re in an unfamiliar environment. Even experienced walkers can run into trouble, which is certainly worth bearing in mind.
