Helvellyn Basecamp

You’ll find Helvellyn basecamp in the heart of the mountain village of Glenridding at the southern end of Ullswater.

We’ve designed a space you can make your own for the day or evening. A space where you can start and end your mountaineering expedition, hold a meeting or corporate away day, an event or exhibition – a flexible space for everyone.

Inside you’ve got your own kitchen, rustic wooden trestle tables and chairs (we can cater for up to 20 people), private bathroom, projector and wifi.

Basecamp is designed to take a bit of wear and tear. We’re in the mountains so know things might get muddy, messy and wet. That’s ok, we’re geared up for it.

It’s your space to go wild and have some fun. You’re free to move things and create the room layout you want but we ask one tiny favour. Just like when you head out wild camping, we ask you leave the basecamp as you found it, all the necessary cleaning materials will be stored in kitchen to help you on your way.

You can hire basecamp for a full day, half a day or the evening.


Full day 8am -6pm  £50
Half day 8am – 12.30pm/ 1pm – 6pm £25
Evening hire 6.30pm – till late £25
