"To see a child, who is often excluded from leisure activities because of Health and Safety, sit out of his wheelchair in the front of a canoe was incredible. To be able to choose from a list of fantastic activities, never mind a beautiful pool and sensory room was utter luxury. I trusted the staff every step of the way. It was magic."

Why the Lake District Calvert Trust?


Courses are for families where one or more family members has a disability and at least one member of the family is under eighteen (for over eighteens please see our Multi-Activity Breaks for Adults).


Bedrooms are mostly twin en-suite with some interconnecting rooms available and we have a variety of aids including height adjustable beds, cot sides, shower/toilet chairs, portable hoists etc. 


"We have had such a fantastic week and leave Calvert with a mixture of feelings, happiness, sense of achievement, sadness to be going and wanting to return."
