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 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 per day.  While they wait, your coach driver may enjoy a free hot drink from our cafe.
