Welcome to St John's-in-the-Vale

Carlisle Diocese Youth Centre

Welcome to the Carlisle Diocesan Youth Centre. We offer a beautiful, remote and rugged but accessible location. Keswick is just four miles away with the M6 just a 30min drive. Nestled in the North Lakeland hills, with modern en-suite 4 – 6 bedded bunk rooms, the centre offers flexible accommodation for a variety of groups. Fell-walking, climbing, orienteering, geo-caching etc are literally on the doorstep, with freedom, space and amazing views from our buildings.  

There are two buildings available with accommodation for up to 25 in the School House and 14 in the Chapel House, both buildings can be hired together for groups up to 39 in number.

The Youth Centre was set up to serve Churches and Youth Organisations in the Carlisle Diocese and beyond.
