The Kepplewray Centre - The Lake District School Trips
The Kepplewray Centre

Home / Activity Centres North / Cumbria

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.
