Operated in partnership with the Lake District National Park Authority, the Centre occupies a dramatic setting on the south west side of Blencathra mountain near Keswick. Gardens and grounds with living willow structures and ponds provide interest and inspiration for visitors on a variety of courses. Red squirrels frequent the grounds and can be seen from the comfort of the dining room.The site offers a magnificent panorama of the Lake District with its rich tapestry of England's highest mountains, quiet pastures, wooded valleys, streams, lakes and settlements which provide a focus for the Centre's activities.
The centre is 15 miles from Junction 40 on the M6 at Penrith and approximately two hours drive from Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle. If travelling by train the nearest station is Penrith, only 3 hours from London and less than 2 hours from Glasgow.
