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!

London Marathon: Support our Fabulous Four!

We have four incredibly brave and determined individuals taking on the Virgin London Marathon in April. As well as completing the 26.2 mile mission, the participants are hoping to raise considerable funds for the Lake District Calvert Trust through their efforts.


This challenge takes literally months of preparation involving a gruelling training schedule, as well as the huge task of gathering sponsorship.

Please show your support for our runners by taking a look at their individual online giving pages and consider sponsoring them for their phenomenal efforts:

Georgia Houghton:

Jack Spedding:

Alice Henderson:


Milo Hollingworth:

They are all aiming to raise over £1700 so any support will be hugely appreciated!

The team at LDCT would like to sincerely thank our fantastic four for choosing to run it for Calvert. We wish them the very best of luck with the remainder of their training and fundraising, and of course best wishes for the big day itself!

If you would be interested in running the marathon in 2016, please get in touch with the fundraising team on 017687 72255 or email
