Water Park has room to accommodate up to 37 people, including staff. The Estate comprises approximately 65 acres, mainly woodland, on the shore of Coniston Water and includes the former mansion house, ancillary buildings, a mile of lake shore, a marina and boathouse. It’s superb location provides good access to Coniston Water and the south Lakeland Fells.

The Eric Wright Trust focuses on groups of young people from schools or other organisations, attending course of educational value and accompanied by their teachers and /or leaders. Such courses aim to enhance aspects of study relating to the National Curriculum, Personal and Social Education and recreation.

The Trust wishes to support any young people who are in financial need; teachers and leaders are encouraged to contact Water Park about such needs. The Trust can subsidise any young people who cannot afford the cost of a residential course at Water Park. Other courses will be provided for corporate clients. Such course could promote team working, personnel development, managerial processes or be purely recreational.

The Estate has a history as a ‘Park’ belonging to Furness Abbey. Its origins are believed to go back to the 12th Century, although the current building is largely Georgian and Victorian in style. The thirteen bedrooms are equipped with single beds and provide accommodation for two, three, four and in one case five people. Showers and toilets are in close proximity. Equipment and clothing for a whole range of land and water based activities are provided.

The Wright Lodge is our day visit facility right by the water’s edge. This was established in 2010 to allow non residential groups access the whole range of activities we have on offer. Groups can approach the Eric Wright Trust for a contribution towards the cost of their visit to the Wright Lodge.
