CANOE BUILDING WORKSHOPS
IN THE LAKE DISTRICT - POOLEY BRIDGE
The orca canoe building workshop is located at Pooley Bridge. So look for accommodation in and around this area.
Below are a few options to get you started including camping, yurts and a barn to stay in at our workshop. If you need any more help just give us a ring.
You are welcome to stay in a yurt or camp at Great Stickland, its about a 20mi drive to Pooley Bridge.
CAMPING YURTS AND BARN (Gt Strickland Courses)
Camping info for Gt Strickland only.
We can offer you camping and yurts along with a Converted barn at Greatstickland. About 20min drive to our workshop.
NOTE: we dont run the camping. If you would like to camp there is an option when booking to let us know. You will be sent arrival info once you have booked a workshop. We will let the camping site know you are coming and you just need to turn up.
Camping is a no frills kind of affair in a small woodland same as Yurts, there is a basic hot shower and flushing toilet. The woodland can get muddy after a lot of rain!! price is £5per person per night £2 under 18s and £1 for a dog. This is all arranged with the farm owners and can be paid in cash to them.
Camping space is limited so please check with us before you commit, as busy builds fill up fast so its a first to book first to get a camping spot.
There is also the option to stay in your camper van at the workshop, however the is no electric hook up. We dont really have room for large motor homes due to the size of our car park.
You are welcome to arrive the night before. Please let us know what you wish to do when you book and all info will be dispensed.
