Abseiling

Takes place on our purpose-built tower. This activity gives people a great opportunity to overcome natural fears and leads to a fantastic sense of achievement. The on-site tower is ideal for beginners or larger groups, as in a typical session people can have several goes, building confidence each time.

Assault Course

We have access to local assault courses where clients get a great adrenaline rush.

Experience high and low ropes courses, the Big Swing, the zip wire and more.

Biking

We offer a choice of routes for groups of all abilities. The picturesque low-level route runs, avoiding busy roads, following a Victorian railway line alongside the river Greta, incorporating only a 30 metre rise in 6 km. For the more adventurous, we can ride to the top of some mountains to enjoy the spectacular views of Keswick and the Borrowdale Valley.

Canoeing

This activity takes place on Derwentwater, one of the most spectacular settings in the country. Basic paddling techniques can be quickly mastered in Canadian canoes, which are very stable and forgiving to beginners! The boats can be rafted together, providing an excellent opportunity for confidence building. The versatility of the boats means the session can be tailored to suit the abilities and confidence of anyone and is therefore a great activity for mixed ability groups of all ages.

Ghyll Scrambling

The descent of a mountain stream by sliding, jumping and scrambling down a series of naturally formed obstacles such as waterfalls, plunge pools and flumes. Wet, wild and challenging, this is probably the most exciting activity you can do in the Lakes.

Raft Building

The traditional barrel and plank exercise is a fun activity requiring planning and design and is great for unobtrusively promoting teamwork and leadership skills. Groups build their own rafts from plastic barrels, poles and ropes, then put them to the test across a course parallel to the shore. Everyone is involved throughout, and the testing of the rafts is done by the crew in a competition with the other teams and makes for a great finale.

Directions

How to get here

Car

Leave the M6 motorway at junction 40 (Penrith) and follow the A66 west towards Keswick (approx 17 miles).
Instead of taking the first slip road off the A66 (sign posted Keswick) carry straight on until you reach the roundabout, take the first exit left.
This will take you along Crossthwaite Road until your reach a T-junction where you turn left.
Follow this road for a few hundred meters and take the first left turn (just over the bridge) following the brown and white tourist signs.
You will find us on the right hand side after a few hundred meters (look out for the abseil tower).
