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.

If you haven’t been before or just not visited in a while, come and see what’s new...start planning your next activity break at the Lake District Calvert Trust!

More funds from Rotary District 1190

During 2013 Rotary District 1190 District Governor David Simpson selected the Lake District Calvert Trust to be his charity of choice for the year. Clubs from across the districts of Lancashire and Cumbria donated funds which resulted in us being able to replace our Pioneer rescue boat; a vital piece of equipment for us.
