Pricing & Help With Funding

Our prices change depending on the following :

  • When you want to visit
  • How long you want to stay
  • How many people you’d like to bring

Bendrigg Subsidy – We fundraise towards the Bendrigg Subsidy which goes towards subsidising our prices to you by around £20 per person per day.

Sponsorship Fund – We also fundraise for an additional Sponsorship Fund, so that if a group would like to visit us, but cannot afford to, they can apply to our sponsorship fund to help cover the cost of their trip. If this sounds like you, we will first advise you of the most cost effective option for a residential trip and if you are still unable to afford this cost, you can make an application for sponsorship. This is dependant on how much sponsorship we have been able to fundraise, we will make you aware upon application whether we have sufficient funds available.

Funding Pack – A separate Funding Pack is available upon request to help you find your own funders and apply for financial support toward your trip. Please contact us via the contact form to request a copy.
