We stayed here for five days Monday to Friday, six of us as couples. Firstly the cost was brilliant £600 for everyone - really great but I know it isn’t peak time. It is more of a house rather than a lodge or cabin, well kitted out, had everything you needed from cutlery to ice buckets and cake tins. The bedrooms were all really great especially the master bedroom with en-suite. Even the bedroom with the two single beds was good. The size of the house is amazing, the architecture and the view. We went into the hydrotherapy pool a lot which is located in the buildings reception / centre. It was quite small but as it is a centre for schools / disabled people etc it was ideal. My only issue was the hot tub outside, log fuelled, so it meant you had to sort it yourself, I get the idea of it but it was a lot to take on especially if you go out on walks etc, on a plus side the maintenance guys did check pH levels etc everyday. Over all 10/10 would recommend. Great place. Would go back.

After a visit last year to Kielder, this was something of a reality check ( Bless Them) After being spoilt last year our visit to the Calvert Trust site made me appreciate even more the things we take for granted. The staff work so hard to provide a fun safe holiday for those of us who can’t look after themselves. didn’t order any meals even though they are available and cater for most people, we are all over 60 but we still didn’t try all the various activities on offer but had a really relaxed time ( no mobile phone ) we had time to reflect on 40 yrs together and all our families being healthy, the site seems to be geared up for support for those volunteers and people who are restricted by health issues but the volunteers are Angels, to hear everyones laughter it warms your heart especially this time of the year remember all these great charities and volunteers and give a little

Brilliant accessible place, helpful and friendly staff. The kids loved the zipwire and the boat ride. Nice part of the country. Will definitely go again. Brilliant place to take family and friends with additional needs.

Lovely place

Stayed for a week and had a great time. Little niggles of things not quite working 100% in the lodge, nothing that ruins a trip but need sorting. Any problem was sorted quickly and effectively. The lodge is gorgeous, high spec and comfortable. Hot tub was a welcome addition, and was checked everyday. The staff were really helpful and very friendly, nothing was too much for them. I would definitely stay again, such a lovely location and the stars were AMAZING!!! Plenty to do in the area although I can’t comment On The activities at Calvert trust as we had the dog with us.

Well run establishment where expectations were met

Annemarie D,
I recently went to Calvert trust with 2 service users both with disabilities. We stayed a week and had a fabulous trip. The accommodation was fully accessible and the staff were fantastic. We spent half a day sailing with one member of staff and she couldn't have been a better skipper. Attentive and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes adventure and seeks a thrill.
