The Lake District Calvert Trust is a residential outdoor centre with 40 years’ experience delivering challenging outdoor adventure holidays for people with disabilities.

On the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park, our centre offers a warm welcome; accessible accommodation and exciting breaks for schools, groups, families and individuals with their friends and carers.

We are accessible to people of all ages with sensory, learning or physical disabilities, including those with the most complex needs for which most outdoor centres cannot cater.

Stables Open Day a Huge Success


The Lake District Calvert Trust's very first Stables Open Day took place on Sunday 2nd June and proved to be a fantastic success.


The event saw over 100 visitors attend, from as far afield as Lancaster as well as from the local area


Visitors enjoyed taking part in a wide range of craft activities, watching some spectacular equine displays, and thoroughly enjoyed their well-earned  tea and biscuits.


The local community turned out in force to support the Calvert Trust keeping our horses and instructors busy all afternoon. There was also an opportunity to decorate your own real-life horse shoe as a memento of the occassion which proved very popular.


Many thanks to all those who came along and helped to make this event such a great sucess. We look forward to seeing you again next year if not before.
