Spring & Summer Services at Bendrigg

Spring & Summer At Bendrigg Trust

We hope you’re all ready and raring to get back outdoors and take on some of your favourite adventure activities at Bendrigg once again. Here are the services we are offering over the Spring and Summer Months in 2021.

*Subject to availability and changes in government guidance

Free Grounds Access Days (March – April)

After the demand in 2020 for a safe, accessible outdoor space, Bendrigg once again are opening up our 15 acre grounds to families with disabilities to access between March and April.

The grounds have accessible paths running throughout, with a woodland trail, musical instrument garden and a wheelchair accessible roundabout and swing. You could bring your bikes, a picnic or just yourselves and enjoy exploring the beautiful natural surroundings alongside your family or friends.

You must book for your group in line with current government guidelines. As of the 29th March you will be able to meet outdoors either in a group of 6 (from any number of households), or in a group of any size from up to 2 households (each household can include existing support bubbles, if eligible) New dates will be added each week on a rolling basis.
