We are open and taking bookings for dates from 26th March Onwards

Outdoor Fun and Adventure at its Best

It has been tough times for everyone, and with light at the end of the tunnel, we are now ready to open and our office is available 9.00am to 5.00pm each weekday to answer any queries or process your booking. To help support your stay we have adjusted our terms and conditions,  with no payment now due until 6 weeks prior to arrival for new bookings between 26th March and 17th July 2021. To further enable your visit we have reduced the required minimum group size to 6.  Significant bursary funding is available, following successful application, to help reduce the overall cost of your stay.

Now Providing Day Activities

Please note we can also provide day activity sessions. These take the place of a full residential and allow anyone to still come and have a brilliant time at Calvert Lakes without having to stay. Sessions might include canoeing, high ropes, cycling or indoor climbing and can be tailor-made to suit your requirements.

Please contact the Bookings Team on 017687 72255 to discuss your requirements

We pride ourselves on being able to deliver a meaningful, fun and adventurous programme of activities suited to our visitors’ confidence and abilities. We structure our programmes depending on the nature of the group and number of participants.

Please note: all prices quoted are for EVERY person attending a course (service users, staff, care support etc) based on maximum occupancy of the rooms available.


Learning outside the classroom on a residential break with the Lake District Calvert Trust is great for pupils with special educational needs. In a fully adapted and safe environment they can develop their independence, realise their abilities and practice socials skills through challenging but achievable activities. The benefits of a residential stay remain long after the visit has finished and can provide impetus for continued physical exercise in everyday life, with us tailoring your course to help achieve your educational goals.

We price school groups from 12 people, then upwards in steps of 6 (ie 18, 24, 30 people etc) to a maximum of 60. The activity courses for school groups are usually run in groups of up to 12 people.

To book at ANY time of year, if we have availability, except over Christmas and New Year.

Taking place on set dates throughout the year to coincide with UK school holidays, these breaks allow the whole family to have fun and challenge themselves together in a safe and specially adapted environment.

You will take part in a set range of activities along with other family groups which provides for a social experience too, irrespective of age or disability.

Courses are also open to children with disabilities coming with non-familial adult care support, as our definition of a ‘Family’ is that one member of the group is under 18 and one has a disability – although this doesn’t have to be the same person.

These fun and challenging activity breaks are aimed at adults with disabilities, allowing them to come to the Lake District Calvert Trust and take part in a range of set activities with their friends, partners, adult family members or care workers.

Taking place on a number of set dates throughout the year, these courses are also suitable for smaller groups coming from care or supported living organisations. We offer a range of dates matching you, where possible, with those of a similar disability, age or level of physical ability and adventurousness. We also offer ‘Buddy’ breaks for unaccompanied adults with low support needs and 'Young Adults' for courses run specifically for young adults between the ages of 16 - 25 years old, who have a disability.
The set date courses are run in groups of up to 12 people with other young adults.
