Great Activities

It can’t all be pampering, foot scrubs and facials. Thankfully it’s not. Not by a long shot. We hope you are sitting down as the list of the different, wacky and damn right weird activities available at De Vere. From young and dumb, to something for Mum - there’s a lot going on in and around our hotels.

Bespoke and unique to each and every hotel, we host everything from poetry recitals to Abba tribute nights. But don’t worry, there are more normal activities such as speedboats on Lochs, flights in a seaplane, quad-biking in the mud and more, but we didn’t want to bore you. Have a look at just some and see what tickles your fancy.


Quad biking
In short, it’s muddy good fun. 400cc of adrenaline fuelled excitement as you hare around country estates. Available at Oulton Hall, Mottram Hall, Carden Park, Belton Woods, Dunston Hall (with prior booking) and Slaley Hall.

Walk with a hawk
Seriously. You get to walk with a large bird of prey on your arm. Nothing gets you closer to nature. Available at Mottram Hall, Belton Woods and Slaley Hall.

Harmless fun for all the family (as long as you’re pointing the right way). Archery has been a favourite British past time for centuries. You can take aim at Mottram Hall, Belton Woods, Carden Park, Dunston Hall (prior bookings) and Slaley Hall.

De Vere Live Events

De Vere is proud of its cultural heritage and is launching its new De Vere Live events shortly, hosting regular music and classic theatre nights set against the magnificent backdrops of legendary hotels such as Slaley and Oulton Hall.
