Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.

The Barracks sleeps 20
The Cottage sleeps 10

The Kentmere Residential Centre consists of these two buildings, both of which are self-contained and may be rented individually or together. A recent refurbishment of the Centre, supported by a lottery grant, allows us to provide the unique combination of a wild and remote setting with the modern comforts that make this a great base for any self-catering group. The location of the Centre at the heart of the beautiful Lake District makes this accommodation particularly well-suited to activity groups, as well as families and friends looking to explore the area and enjoy some of the many and varied pastimes available locally.

The last 1.5 miles of the journey is via an unsurfaced track accessible only by vehicles with a high ground-clearance (eg. minibus or 4x4 ). Although an emergency call-out is available, there is currently no Caretaker on-site. We ask that groups leave the Centre as they find it, ie. all areas are clean and tidy (cleaning materials are available on site) and all rubbish is taken home with you.

The Centre provides an ideal location from which to explore the Kentmere valley with walks of all standards from the famous 'Kentmere Horseshoe' to a gentle stroll around Kentmere Reservoir. The valley is a haven for wildlife with deer, wild ponies, badgers and birds of all kinds including peregrine falcons nesting in the nearby crags.

Facilities

Both buildings provide modern catering standard facilities including fridge, freezer, gas oven and hob plus crockery, cutlery and utensils.
Folding chairs and tables are available for meal times within the open plan living area. Barracks seats max. 20 people, Cottage max. 10 people.
Open-plan space with dining area. Comfy chairs arranged around the wood-burning stove.
TV screen available in upstairs group room for use with laptop/DVD player or computer console. No TV reception.
No mobile phone reception, call-box in Kentmere village. Access to satellite phone in case of emergency. There is no WiFi.
Large upstairs, open plan games/group room.
Barracks and Cottage are centrally heated. Wood/coal burning stoves in both buildings. Please bring your own fuel.
Barracks :- 4 rooms sleeping 6/6/4/4 in double bunk beds. Cottage :- 3 rooms sleeping 2/2/6 (some suitable for children only) in double bunk beds.
None provided. Please bring your own pillows and sleeping bags.
Both buildings have hot and cold running water, toilets, wash-basins and individual showers.
Due to rugged nature of location and steps inside both buildings, the Centre may be unsuitable for people with restricted mobility.
The Centre was designed for use by children and young people. No specific equipment for young infants/babies.
