Bookings – update as at 19 Jul 21
Bookings have reopened and are being taken for 2021 only. A full risk assessment has been conducted and agreed by the Committee Members to ensure the Centre opens in line with Government guidelines. Demand for the Centre is high and most weekends are already fully booked. Due to cleaner shortages (affecting Cumbria-wide) our ability to take mid-week bookings is extremely limited.
An additional charge of £40 per booking will be levied to cover enhanced COVID cleaning requirements.
Further booking conditions can be found on the website.
Bury Jubilee Outdoor Pursuits Centre is available for hire by groups wishing to explore the Lake District.
The centre is self-catering accommodation with a large modern kitchen containing bunk beds for 28 people, with extra provision on the ground floor for 2 disabled persons.
The nearest village, Glenridding, is on the shores of Ullswater, in the north-eastern quarter of the Lake District.
Explore the Beauty
In the area
Arguably the most famous mountain in the Lake District, Helvellyn, is just 2 miles further up the valley from the Hostel. Striding and Swirral Edges are prominent buttresses on its flanks, but care must be taken when traversing these aretes. For the less adventurous, Helvellyn can be approached along the much safer route by Raise and White Side.
To the North, the Royal Oak at Dockray is accessible via Stang End, Glencoynedale and Watermillock Common, a 5 mile walk. At Dockray, the delights of Aira Force, a cascade of waterfalls set within a woodland glade, should not be missed.
Two valleys to the south, Grisedale and Deepdale afford easy lowland walks approachable via Lanty’s Tarn.
A mile down the valley in Glenridding the lake of Ullswater offers sailing and rowing. In the village there are three pubs, and two in Patterdale a mile south along the road via a wooded path.
The ferry from Glenridding to Howtown and Pooley Bridge presents wonderful views of the lake and surrounding fells. Those alighting at Howtown can lunch at the bar of the Howtown Hotel before walking back the six miles to Patterdale, one of the most rewarding lowland walks in the Lakes. Others can return by ferry.
From Patterdale, the heights of Place Fell on the eastern shores of Ullswater are within easy reach, as are the joys of Angle Tarn, possibly the most beautiful tarn in the Lake District.
