Hawse End is located at the head of the magnificent Borrowdale Valley, directly across Derwentwater from Keswick, and has stunning views, with access to the lakeside and mountains. The nearby famous Lake District town of Keswick can be accessed via a short cruise on Derwentwater, and the launch stop is conveniently close to the house. For those more active, there is a lakeside walk around Derwentwater which also takes in Keswick.

On site we can offer exclusive use self catering group accommodation in either our main centre which sleeps up to 50 people or our Hawse End Cottage which sleeps up to 24. We also have yurts on site which are available to hire throughout the year with cosy log burning stoves.

As we are an Outdoor Education Centre for school and youth groups, we can offer an extensive range of outdoor activities all year round, including kayaking, open canoeing, sailing, rock climbing, archery and ghyll scrambling with our experienced outdoor educational leaders.

Our centres are also suitable for large gatherings, celebrations, parties and reunions, or for groups of friends and families.

We accept well behaved dogs at an additional charge - please ask when booking.
