I am writing from Derwentwater Independent Hostel (Barrow House), where I work with several other like-minded people who love running, cycling, climbing, wild swimming and various other outdoor activities. We really enjoy welcoming fellow outdoor enthusiasts to Derwentwater, and I thought you might be interested in organising a trip away for your club.

In the past year our guests have included City of Lancaster Triathlon Club and One Life Racing (a wide mix of ages and abilities), Cumbernauld Athletics Club (70 of their young members, who all took part in Keswick Parkrun!), Ochil Hill Runners, and High Terrain (trail running training weekends), and we are used to providing healthy home made food for hearty appetites. We also have a fund for subsidising youth groups, so if you want to organise a residential specifically for juniors, please let us know.

Even a short stay seems to help people get to know each other and feel rejuvenated, and there are always lots of events in and around Keswick if you want a particular focus. We really enjoy sharing our local knowledge and helping groups organise a visit, so please get in touch if you have any questions.

In the meantime, I have attached a brief information poster, and you can find lots more information about the hostel on our website .

Best wishes,

Katy Moore (DIH Education Officer and keen Keswick AC member!)

P.S Barrow House used to be owned by Bob Graham, whose name, as you may know, is immortalised in the challenge he designed and completed, now known as the Bob Graham Round (BGR). The aim of the BGR is to visit 42 Lakeland peaks on foot, covering about 70 miles, within 24 hours. Phew! Several people have prepared for their BGR attempt at Barrow House, and a number of successful challengers have stayed with us. The house definitely has great fell running heritage, and there is a memorial cairn for Bob Graham just above our grounds.
