The Kennels

A COSY WOODLAND CLASSROOM, IDEAL FOR ENVIRONMENTAL EXPLORATION

The Kennels, our cosy woodland classroom, is situated just across the road from the main Water Park manor house. The Kennels building is nestled on the edge of our private broad-leafed woodland which extends to 50 acres up the fell-side. This traditional stone building, formerly the Estate kennels, has been converted into an impressive atmospheric classroom, ideally suited for environmental exploration and woodland adventure sessions.
