If peace and tranquility are what you are looking for in a stunning, unspoilt and remote location with amazing views, Low Gillerthwaite is perfect. The centre sits at the base of Pillar and Red Pike making it a great base for fell walking, classic rock climbs, bird or wildlife watching, mountain biking, orienteering, canoeing and environmental studies. Families, friends, corporate, schools and youth groups will love time away from it all, exploring the Lake District and enjoying the activities on offer.
The large kitchen is a well equipped and sociable space for preparing those all important meals together. Ellen the warden provides a catering service too for gatherings of all sizes, ideal for a special celebration or simply to take away the stress after a long day's walking. Guests can relax at the tables in the dining room while Ellen does it all for you. She will also prepare packed lunches, by prior arrangement.
There are 2 cosy living rooms where guests can sit back in front of log burning stoves after a day of activity. Visitors can see plenty of the original features in this lovely old farmhouse with sash windows and views to the grounds.
Accommodation is spread across 5 rooms, all with sturdy wooden bunk beds and storage. The dormitories are of different sizes for added convenience. There are separate male and female toilets facilities with multiple basins and hot showers along the indoor corridor. Furthermore there is a separate accessible WC with wet room for group leaders or disabled visitors. The in house drying room is the place to dry off wet boots and waterproofs.
An educational hub has been set up at Low Gillerthwaite to promote learning of Science, Maths, Technology and Engineering, making it a good choice for school visits.
