Bassenfell Manor Christian Centre provides bespoke outdoor adventure education courses for primary and secondary school groups, and young adults. Bassenfell also provides accommodation for self catering groups, day activities, activity holidays for individuals, day conferences, and courses for outdoor activity instructors including first aid courses.
High quality individual care means groups return to Bassenfell year after year. It has a superb setting in 3 acres in the Lake District National Park near Bassenthwaite Lake and Skiddaw Mountain. We offer activities in the grounds of Bassenfell, and on the fells and lakes. All relevant activities are fully licensed: AALA registration number L12437 / R0157
Programmes are individually designed to include your catering requirements, outdoor activities and educational visits. Every group is presented with a Christian ‘thought for the day’ which shares our faith in our amazing God in an interactive fun way relevant to the activities to be undertaken that day.
Sole use of the centre is the norm for groups, and accommodation at Bassenfell is for up to 65 people in 19 bedrooms (mainly en-suite), sleeping between 2 and 5. Central heating is throughout the centre and there is an entrance lobby, comfy lounge, coffee bar, conservatory overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, a large conference room, games room, dining room, drying room, and a well equipped kitchen.
There is also a self contained holiday apartment which can be hired to increase group total capacity to 69.
