The centre is situated on the shores of Coniston Water in the stunning Lake District, with the majestic "Old Man" as a backdrop and Grizedale Forest close by. For more information, see contact and directions.
Thurston was recently awarded a Sport England grant to implement sustainable and environmental energy measures.
