Why visit the Lake District?

Enjoy a real adventure

Most groups who choose to visit the Lake District do so during Activities Week. That’s because an Activities Week school residential to the Lake District offers groups the opportunity to stay at a dedicated school and youth group activity centre where you can try a great variety of water and adventure sports, all within a spectacular setting.

On an Activities Week school residential to the Lake District, you’ll stay at a purpose-built accommodation and activity centre for school and youth groups on the southwest shore of Windermere.

Hidden within 400 acres of private woodland, with sheltered bays in which to get to grips with the basic skills of a variety of watersports, this is the ideal destination for your group.

On your school trip to the Lake District, your students will have the opportunity to try archery, canoeing, ghyll scrambling and kayaking. They can even take on a high ropes course!

Here, on your school trip to the Lake District, your students will not only have the unforgettable experience of trying a variety of water and adventure sports, but they’ll also improve their self-confidence, resilience, teamwork and communication skills. All under the watchful guidance of the centre’s fully-qualified instructors.

Spectacular landscapes

The Lake District boasts some of the most dramatic, beautiful scenery in the UK. It is a mountainous region – in fact, all the land in England higher than 3,000ft lies within the Lake District National Park!

That includes Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain. This is one of the best places in the country to see how glaciation can leave its mark on the landscape – many of the landscape features were formed during the last ice age, over 20,000 years ago.

If you do choose an Activities Week school residential to the Lake District, you’ll stay on the shores of Windermere, the largest natural lake in England. Windermere has been a popular tourist attraction since the late 19th century, when people started arriving to spend their summers by this beautiful lake.
