Learning Fields CIC, "a centre for wellbeing", Cumbria



Learning Fields is a Community Interest Company (CIC) offering educational and environmental opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.

"A centre for wellbeing", Learning Fields allows individuals or groups to observe and enjoy the countryside in a safe environment that can be exclusively theirs during their visit. Learning Fields is based at Nag's Head Farm which has 10 hectares of grassland and woodland - a perfect setting for a wide range of outdoor activities, a kitchen garden and greenhouse, and a modern indoor classroom attached to toilets and accommodation. Everywhere has been designed to be accessible for people of all ages and abilities.

"We are home to a wide range of plants and wildlife, including animals and amphibians and you are welcome to try various organised activities throughout the year, or use the facility to organise your own activity."

Access For All

Although Learning Fields is on a working farm with some rougher and uneven terrain, we can ensure that our less mobile visitors can 'access all areas' through the use of a vehicle especially for this purpose.


Learning Fields Community Interest Company does not have to generate profits for shareholders, but simply has to benefit the community. Our charging policy is to cover costs and a contribution towards training and investment in the future. As each visit is individually tailored to your needs on that day, prices can only be confirmed after agreement.
