Our 8 year old had the kids climbing lesson and couldn't drag him away from the bouldering area afterwards. He loved it. Meanwhile the 2 and 5 year olds had a fantastic time in Rookery Woods on the zip wire and play area, archery (arrows with suckers), rounding up the coloured sheep and orienteering. Fantastic new play area, they loved... More

Eventually got around to visiting the Keswick Climbing Wall with my grandson,(8 yrs old). The centre is approximately 2 miles from the centre of keswick and it is well sign posted, so easy to find. Ample free parking for visitors too. We arrived without booking in advance and booked an hour on the climbing wall and an hour of archery.... More

My family enjoyed a great afternoon on the high ropes course and we did archery. It was a really fun time. Sam was our guide for the whole afternoon and he made sure they were safe on the ropes course ("don't double unclick" :). And he didn't laugh too hard when my husband fell face forward in the net!!

We were only passing, having walked from the Stone Circles, but we called for a loo & a brew and it was great. From a distance outside (as we had dogs with us) the walls didn't look too scary, yet when I was passing to get to the toilets OMG, they suddenly got bigger!!!! It's all very clean and loos... More

Had a brilliant afternoon with my two daughters (9 & 12 years), Ghyll scrambling....first time to try something like this and it was such fun. We joined another family of mum and daughters and the whole group got on really well. The instructor was excellent, patient and encouraging and safety attentive without that getting in the way of adventurous fun.... More

Awesome is certainly a great word to describe the Ghyll Scramble !! Sound like you really enjoyed the water chutes, waterfall leaps and plunge pools that all make up the scramble and I hope that you will visit us again and maybe try our new Zip-line, all 170m of it !! More

Looking for a wet day activity, we chose the Keswick Climbing Wall. Children loved their climbing lessons - great instructor who build their confidence. Plenty of walls to climb and although very busy, there wasn't any waiting as there were so many different walls to climb. We did book ahead.
