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.
