Here at the Calvert Trust Kielder we’re very excited about a new addition to our site…
Just take a look at the fabulous photos of the Bradbury Chalet, our newest luxury accessible accommodation.
The Bradbury Foundation, who have supported Calvert Trust over many years, have once again provided the funds to help us build the second of five planned luxury accessible chalets.
As fantastic as the brilliant Straker Chalet, if you book now you can experience for yourself the steam/shower room, or soak in the spa bath while watching your favourite soap on the in-wall bathroom TV.
Enjoy the panoramic views of Kielder Water & Forest Park from the Jacuzzi on the terrace through the day, and the darkest skies in England at night.
If cooking is your favourite thing, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you could want, from individual lemon squeezers to a fish kettle!
The master bedroom has a hoist discreetly housed above the bed and the family bathroom has a door that opens in and out for easier access.
For the fourth consecutive year now, we’ve welcomed hundreds of young people during July and will continue to do so throughout August for a residential stay as part of their ‘Personal Challenge – Get Active’, ran by the National Citizen Service (www.the-challenge.org).
The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a government-backed programme which brings together young people from diverse backgrounds, providing them with strong skills for life, work, and adulthood.
As part of their intensive, part-residential programme, the ‘NCS Personal Challenge – Get Active’ encourages participants to face their fears, develop confidence and bond with team mates…
…and that’s where canoes come in. If you see a bunch of 16 and 17 year olds having a whale of a time on Kielder Water, supervised of course by our fantastic activities staff, you’ll be witnessing a first for many of them.
The teenagers are mostly from London and the Midlands and have little or no experience of the wonderful environment that Northumberland has to offer.
We’re sure that the beauty of Kielder and their experiences while in the Park, will help them to face their fears, develop confidence and bond with team mates.
