What we offer
Self catering accommodation for groups.
It currently has very basic facilities and only suitable for well organized and hardy groups (perhaps training a team before going off to a much more remote part of the world). It has limited washing facilities, portaloos and no hot water system. Heating is only provided, by pot bellied stove, in the common/dining room. Kitchen facilities are rudimentary (gas rings and hot water boilers).
The centre is for self programming groups.
What makes us a great choice?
A fantastic location within 8km/5miles of the summit of Scafell Pike and at the foot of Grey Friar.
Excellent base for adventurous activities such as
fell walking - Coniston Old Man horseshoe from the door
climbing - Seathwaite Butress, Wallabarrow Crag, Dow Crag
white water paddling - river Duddon
