Please note - The Lake District Calvert Trust is a specialist centre for groups with disabilities

Based on the shores of Lake Bassenthwaite, The Lake District Calvert Trust is a catered residential outdoor centre with over 40 years of experience in delivering challenging outdoor adventure holidays for people with disabilities. The centre offers exciting structured residential breaks for schools, groups, families and individuals with their friends and carers, which are accessible to people of all ages, including those with the most complex needs for which most outdoor centres cannot cater.

Groups of 50 plus can enjoy exclusive use of the centre, whilst a number of smaller groups may be accommodated at the same time.

Catering for up to 60 guests, every aspect of the centre is fully accessible and rooms are specifically designed to enable the care of those with profound and complex disabilities. A full range of additional specialist equipment is available on request. Rooms are mainly twins, but family rooms are available and all have en suite wet-rooms.

The team of chefs provide all guests with 3 meals per day, freshly prepared on site using local ingredients and can be adapted to any special dietary requirements.

Residents have access to the state-of-the-art Water Centre, which includes a hydrotherapy pool, multi-sensory room, poolside sauna and any mechanical poolside lifts required. There is also an on-site games room, sports hall and a small bar.

Experienced staff and adapted equipment allow guests to really experience a range of activities including (to name a small selection) sailing, climbing, abseiling, horse riding and bushcraft. Safety of guests is paramount and their instructors hold all the relevant national governing body awards, with the centre fully licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA).

Animals are not allowed on site, with the exception of support dogs.
