Coronavirus – visiting the Lake District

Coronavirus status – updated Feb 25 2021

Well we can finally see a hope of having our normal groups again this year. We are so excited at the prospect of welcoming groups back into the bunkhouse. It’s going to be so much fun getting back on the lake and in the becks!

Just you in our activity experiences

To keep things simple this year – all our activities will be single party bookings so whether there are 2 of you or 20 of you, it will be just you! So if you are a small group you will get everything at your pace, it is focussed on what you want to do and we can fit lots in! There are lots of benefits especially with Covid which won’t be disappearing altogether unfortunately.

What you can book when:

(All dates are subject to change according to the governments allowing us to move into the next step.)
Step 1 (from 29th March) Local people only can book activities for up to 2 households or according to the rule of 6.
Step 2 (from 12th April) Single households can book to stay in the bunkhouse, sole use. Activities can be booked according to the rule of 6 or 2 households.
Step 3 (from 17th May) The bunkhouse can be booked by groups of 2 households or the rule of 6. Activities can be booked by any size group (up to 30).
Step 4 (from 21st June) Any size group can stay in the bunkhouse and do activities according to our normal logistic considerations! Yay! (Happy dance!)

Booking an activity is really simple – you just book the activity and tell us how many are in your group. There’s a base price for half days of £170 plus £10 per person attending up to 8 people.

We have revised our terms and conditions and have a no fuss policy regarding changes to bookings due to Coronavirus.

We are very excited to be opening to groups again and have a number of measures in place to make what we do Covid secure. It is still vital that individuals do not stay in the bunkhouse or take part in activities if they or a member of their household has symptoms of Coronavirus. Read our COVID19 Risk Assessment here.

Do please get in touch if anything is unclear or you would like to book something our booking system won’t allow and we’ll do our best to help you.
