Sports Groups

Kepplewray is an ideal group accommodation venue being very convenient for many Lakeland pursuits and specific competitions held locally. We have hosted many sports and recreation based groups, for example:

• cyclists – whilst they practice or take part in the Fred Whitton Challenge
• canoe groups who make use of the local lakes and rivers
• orienteering groups who challenge themselves around the local fells or take part in local competitions
• trials bikers who take part in national time trials held in the Lake District
• fell runners
• rock climbers

Kepplewray is able to offer flexible accommodation, safe storage and pick up and drop off services by arrangement.

So if your group fancy heading to the Lakes to take part in a competition or just to do more of that which they enjoy, contact us using the "Find out more" form on the right hand side of this page and ask how we can help.

Please note that, if you require accommodation for a specific event, early booking is advisable.
