Interactive 360 Aerial Photo
Below is our fantastic interactive 360 degree aerial photograph of our site and grounds allows you to scroll up and down, zoom in and out to get a great sense of where things are situated around our grounds and our surroundings. Can you spot our local Canoeing site Killington Reservoir?
Big thanks to Simon Handley from Skylark Aerial Photography for shooting the drone footage for our guided tour and taking the 360 image above free of charge to support this project.
Step 2 : Action Pack
Our “Action Pack” is jam packed full of practical information to help you get a sense of the ins and outs of a Bendrigg course.
It includes :
- A typical daily timetable
- A sample programme of activities
- A sample menu
- Accommodation floor plans & accessibility information
- Risk management summary & information
- How our bookings process works (separate page for groups and families/adults)
- The benefits of a Bendrigg Course & outdoor learning
Step 3 : How do our activities work?
See the activities in action!
Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it! We have a collection of videos available on our YouTube channel which will help you to get a sense of how our activities run here at Bendrigg.
We have created a range of communication resources to help you prepare for your trip.
We understand that for many of our visitors, coming to a new place is a challenge in itself, let alone taking on adventure activities! Therefore, Bendrigg have created their own activity stories to help ease peoples anxieties before a visit.
Activity Story Videos – Coming Soon
We are in the process of creating a range of activity story videos which are currently being edited and will be available soon.
Step 4 : Meet our admin team
Jo Winchester & Paula Davis are our wonderful Bookings Co-ordinators. Jo has worked at Bendrigg for 24 years and Paula joined our team at the beginning of 2022 and is already a wonderful new addition to the team. Both Jo & Paula can help to answer any questions you have regarding our availability, quotes, rooms and accessibility.
Beth Griffith is our fabulous Activities Co-ordinator (whilst Liz Dyke is on maternity leave). Beth works part time, liaising with our groups to create the perfect activity programmes before their visit. Beth has previously worked as a Trainee Tutor at Bendrigg so has a valuable insight into how our courses run and can help to answer your questions about activities and programmes including accessibility and equipment questions.
We have put together some Frequently Asked Questions to help with any queries you might have, but if you’d prefer to chat to one of our team who take care of our bookings and activities please get in touch programmes.
Step 5 : Want to visit us in person? No problem!
We know that time is of the essence which is why we created this virtual pack to help you get a feel for Bendrigg from the comfort of your home… BUT we would still very much welcome group leaders from schools and groups to come and visit us for a short tour of our grounds and facilities.
To arrange this please contact us to tell us about your group and when you’d like to visit!
We hope to welcome you to Bendrigg soon!
