The Kepplewray Centre - The Lake District School Trips
The Kepplewray Centre
Established over 20 years ago and set in a large Victorian House with beautiful extensive grounds in a stunning area of the UK. The all-inclusive accommodation boasting 76 beds in a range of room sizes means we can welcome a wide range of groups. Our food is great too with lots of filling home cooked meals on the menu and the shortbread biscuits and flapjack always goes down well.
Our costs are very reasonable and we are rarely beaten on price. Over 70% of schools come back year after year. We are set up to welcome people of all abilities, believing the experience should be equal for all.
Why are The Kepplewray Centre great for School Trips and Educational Visits?
All of our activities at The Kepplewray Centre are either on site or a very short drive into The Lake District National Park.
That means that your group can try out some of our fantastic activities with our qualified and experienced staff and then return to the comfort of The Kepplewray Centre for great home cooked food and a good nights sleep.
What activities are available during group visits?
We can offer a mix of activities tailored to the needs and abilities of your group. A programme might consist of:
Duke of Edinburgh Award Expeditions
NNAS (National Navigation Award Scheme)
Source to Sea
