If you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes AND also a lover of spectacular scenery, quaint and/or bustling villages, outdoor pursuits, country museums, and historical homes and gardens, why not combine your interests and come visit the Lake District National Park? The Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness-on-Windermere is presenting matinee and evening performances of a play entitled ‘Sherlock’s Last Case’ until 13th September 2015, which promises to be highly entertaining.

The Old Laundry Theatre presents a stunning production of Sherlock’s Last Case by Charles Marowitz

This production runs from Thursday 20 August to Sunday 13 September with evening and afternoon performances.

A death threat delivered to 221B Baker Street by the daughter of his arch enemy scarcely ruffles the feathers of the legendary Sherlock Holmes.  A second threat still does little to shake the great detective’s nonchalance in the face of impending death. However, now, he’s intrigued……. Employing his great powers of deduction, Holmes embarks on a bizarre and mysterious case that eventually brings him face-to-face with his avenger. Is this the end of the most famous detective in the world? The answer is elementary, my dear Watson.

True to the spirit of Conan-Doyle’s original Sherlock novels, this black comedy has all the suspense and intrigue of a great detective story whilst poking gentle fun at the super sleuth’s eccentric personality. With humour and suspense in equal amounts, events lead to a stunning final twist which will surely catch you by surprise!

“…packed full of gems…wickedly funny… ”


If you are attending a performance at The Old Laundry Theatre, Blenheim Lodge, our guest house, is only a short 5-minute walk from the theatre. We are situated on a hilltop above Bowness-on-Windermere centre where The Old Laundry Theatre is located. Thus, if you are considering a theatre break, our B&B will make a very convenient – and comfortable – stopping place. Add to your break by indulging in some of the other treats the Lake District has to offer: fabulous scenery; attractions and activities to suit all interests and abilities; castles, genteel houses and humbler homes to explore within their historical and literary contexts; nature reserves and beautiful gardens; not forgetting great local food and drink to indulge in!

Blenheim Lodge offers AA 4-star bed and breakfast accommodation in a tranquil location  where guests can take immediate advantage of our local surroundings to explore the acres of National Trust land behind our house on Brantfell, taking in also the stunning panoramic and 360-degree views from four viewpoints within easy walking distance of our guest house. The Dales Way Walk is a mere minute’s stroll from our front door. From your room, also enjoy some fantastic views of Lake Windermere and the mountains or the Brantfell woodlands. Take a break: slip off to the Land of Nod to the sound of silence and awaken to the trilling of birdsong.
