Castle Head Field Centre provides extensive accommodation for large groups of all backgrounds including Orchestras, Youth Groups, Universities, Spiritual Retreats, Adult Walking Groups etc.

The Centre is divided into two main areas of accommodation. The impressive Georgian house which can sleep up to 47 people in a mix of bunk rooms, single and twin rooms, split over two floors. We also have the Hillfoot accommodation wing that can sleep up to 110 in a mix of single en-suite, twin en-suite, and bunk rooms split over two floors. Bunk rooms have seperate shower and toilet block facilities.

There is also a large sports hall, four classrooms, TV lounge, library area, two large common rooms and a cosy lounge with open fire. We also have kitchen and large dining room. We can provide fully catered or self-catering services. Throughout the Centre, there are kitchenette areas providing hot and cold refreshments.

We are situated in extensive private grounds of 20 hectares with several on-site adventurous activities. We can provide access to our activities upon request, however they can only be used with one of our experienced tutors and would be at an additional charge. On-site activities include - rafting, canoeing, climbing, orienteering, and low ropes.

We can also offer off-site activities with our experienced tutors, which would include additional cost and transportation charge should you wish to use our minibuses. These activities include, sea-level traverse, canoeing, ghyll-scrambling, walking.

Alternatively feel free to use Castle Head as a base and explore the vast amount of things the Lake District and surrounding areas has to offer.

We are an Eco-Centre and have taken many steps towards trying to reduce our environmental impact. The Field Studies Council is committed to bringing "Environmental Understanding to All".

Please note: While we can cater for very large groups, we do request a minimum group size of 36.
