More about this Workshop/Service and the Provider

Set in the heart of the Lake District, on the shores of Windermere, Great Tower is one of our most stunning locations. Discover, explore and be inspired by our 250 acres of woodland and rocky-crags perfect for hiking as well as being in England’s largest National Park. The Lake District is home to Scafell Pike (England's highest Mountain), Wast Water (England's deepest lake) and thriving communities like Keswick and Ambleside.

We can offer lodges, camping, or tented village accommodation.

 and separate communal/dining areas.
