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.

Low Wood No Wood Cardboard Boat Race

For more information about this fantastic event check out the offical webpage HERE

Sponsored by Progression Solicitors, and hosted by Low Wood Bay Hotel, the Low Wood No Wood Cardboard Boat Race was a real success last year, with lots of valuable funds raised in aid of the Lake District Calvert Trust.


Low Wood Boat Race


A huge fleet of unusal and colourfully designed boats contended in the race - with some being rather more boyant and lake-worthy than others! And whilst there was definitely a competitive feel to the day, the event will be best remembered for the amount of laughter and fun had by both competitors and spectators alike: a genuinely feel-good day had by all.
