Taste the Freedom of The Lake District


Kendal’s situation within the Lake District makes it truly unique as training location.  We believe that the slower pace in comparison to city life provides the ideal environment for the type of training we deliver.  Escaping from the pressures of daily existence allows people to focus their minds more easily on the task in hand and apply the learning in non-pressurised, liberated surroundings. 

As active people who enjoy the best of the local area we can recommend mountain instructors and guides, yoga teachers, zumba classes, spa's, masseurs and walks, climbs and cycle routes suitable for an evening or a full day expedition.

If you are looking to “get away from it all”, visit somewhere special, enjoy your training in a relaxing and peaceful environment and add something more to your learning experience then training with Sugar NLP in Kendal is for you.
