Residential outdoor activities centre for the disabled.
A registered charity, for over 40 years, the Lake District Calvert Trust has been welcoming guests with disabilities to our dedicated centre, so that they can enjoy the benefits of outdoor activities in a safe and accessible, yet challenging environment. Although part of the Calvert Trust family, with other centres in Exmoor and Kielder, the centre in the Lake District was the first to open and retains a unique feel and approach.
Set in a stunning location overlooking Bassenthwaite Lake, our main centre is fully accessible throughout, with us also having our own stables and boathouse at separate nearby locations. We endeavour to run as many activities as possible out in the wider Lake District so that our residents also get to explore one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
As part of our charitable aims, we also offer locals and visitors alike the opportunity to use our state of the art water centre and riding school to ensure that every aspect of what we do is open to as many people as possible.
Staff, Trustees, residents and occasional visitors, everyone contributes to the Calvert Trust believe that ‘it’s what you can do that counts’.
