FSC Blencathra occupies a dramatic setting at 300m up the south facing slope of Blencathra in the Lake District National Park, and offers an unparalleled panorama across the Keswick, Helvellyn and Skiddaw areas.
FSC Castle Head is located in south Cumbria between the coast of Morecambe Bay and the Lake District National Park. The Centre is easily accessible by both road and rail, being only 20 minutes from junction 36 of the M6 and an hour and a half drive from both Manchester and Liverpool. The closest train station at Grange-over-Sands is only 5 minutes’ drive from the Centre.
