Prior to your visit you will have one point of contact - the Hawse End Administration Office. It is advisable to contact the office with a choice of dates and group size to place a provisional booking over the phone or by email.

The provisional booking will be held for two weeks giving group leaders time to complete and return a booking form together with a £200 holding fee. A £25 per person deposit will be required 16 weeks prior to arrival. An invoice/transfer will be raised approximately 8 weeks prior to your visit for the balance of payment. 

Bookings can be taken 1 to 2 years in advance.


Once group leaders have confirmed the booking they will enter into the planning stage of their visit. During this time a bespoke programme will be negotiated and planned in order to meet the group aims and objectives, as well as within budget restraints. Any programmes of activities delivered by the centre will be agreed, booked, costed and approved by the group leader prior to the start of your visit. Any programme of activities to be self delivered should be submitted prior to arrival.


In addition to in-house course transport (included in the price) Cumbria Outdoors can offer minibus transport at a minimal cost to and from the centre of your choice if your group are travelling within county.
