Lake District Bunkhouse Accommodation - Lowick School

Lowick School Bunkhouse offers fantastic group accommodation in the Lake District. The bunkhouse has 20 beds in 3 rooms (2 x 8 + 1 x 4) plus a lounge/meeting room with wood-burning stove, a fab kitchen-dining room, great views of the mountains, an outdoor area with campfire and more!


Lowick School Bunkhouse is within the old primary school in Lowick Green nestled between Coniston (9 miles) and Ulverston (6 miles) within the Lake District National Park, Cumbria. We are 25 mins drive from junction 36 of the M6 and only 4 miles from Coniston Water. It is less than a mile to 2 pubs – either a pleasant walk down a back lane to the Red Lion or down the main road to the Farmers Arms.

Inside the bunkhouse

The kitchen-diner has plenty of work top space and open shelving for you to store your food. All the crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils you need plus a range cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer, toaster and large sink. The dining space has tables plus stacking chairs.

The lounge/meeting room has the all-important wood burning stove, double height ceiling, sofas, screen, table football, white board and more stackable chairs.

Bedrooms all have a chalet feel with purpose built solid bunkbeds. A mattress is provided and groups should bring sleeping bags and pillows. There are male and female toilets and showers, though these will be open to all should the group be single sex.

"For my sister's hen weekend 10 of us stayed at the Lowick School Bunkhouse and went gorge walking with RDMH. It was a fantastic experience, and enjoyable even for a nervous novice. Johan and Bob were great when I was finding the gorge challenging, and I'm certain I wouldn't have been able to climb the waterfall without their calm reassurance. Thank you for an unforgettable experience!"

"I booked Ghyll Scrambling for 18 lads (including one who was fully blind) on a Stag party and from start to finish RDMH were excellent. Their booking process and communication was excellent throughout so we didn't have any issues. On the actual day the instructors were exceptional and made the whole experience fun, challenging and rewarding - Ghyll Scrambling is also a great way to get rid of hangover! The one member of our party who was blind was very positive, determined and ready to take on all the challenges - he was looked after by the RDMH team and managed to complete the whole course at Tilberthwaite including scaling the waterfall which was a testament to the staff - along with his positive attitude. Overall RDMH were a pleasure to deal with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to do activities in the Lake District."
