Celebrate at Derwent Hill

Celebration event, product launch, conference, reunion ...

Make your event one to remember

The stunning setting of Derwent Hill makes special events memorable, whether they are:

  • an extended family get-together
  • a special anniversary or birthday
  • a club meet
  • a conference
  • a celebration event
  • a product launch
  • another special occasion

We look after the catering so that you can make the most of your stay.

Choose from the comfortable single/double/twin rooms in our Training Centre, the dormitories with ensuite facilities in our Education Centre, or even our exclusive campsite.

For weekend break packages please see our short breaks section.

If you take over the whole site, you get exclusive use of our 25-acre estate overlooking Derwent Water for your guests.

You can book a Whole Centre short break or a Special Celebration package.
