Patterdale Hall is the Residential Adventure Learning Centre owned and managed by Bolton School and available to hire by all groups.
We are based at the Southern end of Lake Ullswater in the Lake District, within easy reach of both the North West and North East of England. We welcome clients from throughout the UK and from overseas.
From our beautiful and comfortable Victorian country house we offer fully catered accommodation for up to 70 guests, although we are happy to talk to any group no matter how small, and can tailor make an activity programme at your request.
All our activities take place on the doorstep of the centre, with no need to travel in minibuses and waste valuable time. We are ideally located with natural crags and an 8 mile long lake all within short walking distance from the centre. Our 80 acres of extensive grounds allow access straight onto the Lakeland fells for walking, mountaineering and so much more. We even have an adventurous gorge that flows through the grounds.
We have experience working with many groups including primary, secondary and university age groups as well as offering some apprentice and corporate development events. We regularly provide for youth organisations including NCS, Girlguiding and the Scouts.
Outdoor pursuits are used as a vehicle for learning and the activities we can offer include:
Rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, barrel rafting, problem solving activities, ropes course, archery, bush craft, hill walks, gorge walking and gyhll scrambling, environmental and conservation activities, mountaineering, orienteering, sailing, powerboat courses, expeditions.
We have a wealth of experience facilitating Duke of Edinburgh expeditions at all three levels.
Our experienced staff will design and deliver a programme in consultation with visiting leaders.
We intend that every stay at Patterdale hall will be a happy and memorable experience. Our team of staff deliver exceptional levels of customer service, from first enquiry though to post course administration.
