At Brockhole, we pride ourselves on combining fun and learning and making it accessible to all. To do this, we open our grounds and house free of charge. To continue to improve this unique learning provision, and to maintain the adventure playpark, we ask for a contribution of £1 for each visiting child.
Parking charges apply to cars, minibuses and coaches. All income goes towards supporting the work of the Lake District National Park and helps to maintain our stunning landscape for all to enjoy. Coach parking is £8. While they wait, your coach driver may enjoy a free hot drink from our cafe.
No coaches are accepted between 23 July - 4 September and 15 - 30 October. Please do not attempt to drive onto the site with a coach during these dates as there will be nowhere to either park or turn.
Please contact Ruth Suddaby, our Learning Coordinator by email at email@example.com or call her on 015394 46601.
