News & Offers from Lowick School Bunkhouse

Still time to spend Easter in the lakes

February 14th 2020

Lowick School Bunkhouse, formerly the primary school of Lowick Green now serves as accommodation for groups in the outer lakes.

An incredible location with excellent facilities make for a top Easter break destination. The well equipped kitchen is ideal for cooking for a big group, large families or groups of friends. Better yet there is a table big enough for everyone to eat round. Being the lake district there’s enough to do whatever tickles your fancy, from abseiling to plain old walking. After a hectic day of adventures perhaps use the ample space outside the hostel for an egg hunt. £300 a night, minimum 2 nights, reduction for a longer booking.
