Carlisle Diocese Youth Centre, Keswick


Arrival & departure

Bookings normally run from Friday 2pm to Sunday afternoon and from Monday 2pm to Friday 10am (the Centre needs to be clear by 10.00am to allow preparation for following groups). If you wish to arrive earlier, you must obtain prior agreement from the Chaplain. Other combinations of days may be available - again please contact the Chaplain.

From 2016 we have revised our Booking Policy as follows:

Minimum terms:  Mid-week & Weekends a minimum of 2 nights, Bank Holidays (weekends plus Christmas & New Year) a minimum of 3 nights.

Last minute Bookings (less than 14 days) these minimum terms are relaxed, and minimum numbers are reduced (14 in School House, 7 in Chapel House)

How to make a Booking

  1. Contact the Chaplain to check up to date availability (the available dates listed above is only a guide, and may not take account of the most recent bookings taken).
  2. The Chaplain will send you a booking form with a request for your deposit. Please return the booking form with your deposit as soon as possible. The balance is normally payable 2 weeks before you arrive.
  3. Let the Chaplain know, a few days before your visit, the time of arrival so that he can give you information about access and arrange to meet you.
  4. Have a great time! The Chaplain may visit you during your stay, and will make arrangements to collect any remaining balance of payment.


The Centre can accommodate groups of up to 25 in School House, up to 14 in Chapel House, or up to 39 if the whole centre is booked.

We often have a number of vacant bookings mid-week or late cancellations. If you would like us to put you on a reserve list in case of cancellations please contact us with details of your group, size of group and when you would like to come to the centre eg. month or season and we will endeavour to fit you in where possible.

Contact the Warden to check up to date availability.
