Learning Fields, "a centre for wellbeing", Cumbria


"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."

Learning Fields Community Interest Company says Goodbye and Thank you!

After 12 years of providing educational & environmental opportunities for people of all ages and abilities in an outdoor setting, during 2019 the Directors made the decision to close the Community Interest Company at the end of our financial year, 30th April 2020.

During this period we have introduced hundreds of people to the wonders of the natural environment and made a real difference to the lives of many.

We’re sorry that closure of the CIC has coincided with the arrival of Covid-19, but would like to thank all the groups and individuals that have worked with us over the years.

We will continue to offer 1:1 support for individuals in a Care Farm setting, at Nag’s Head Farm, and Ernie’s Shed remains as a workspace available for groups to hire for running their own workshops.

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.
