Not the biggest wall in the world but a good place to have a go at indoor climbing. Has plenty to keep a regular climber occupied on a wet afternoon. Nice staff who know their stuff and are helpful.

What a fantastic climbing wall. I took my daughter to this wall (she is a climbing wall fanatic!) and what a great time she had. The staff were very polite, helpful and professional. Well worth a visit.

As an experienced climber, I was pretty impressed by the quality of this centre. The staff were helpful and the facilities are great. There's a huge range of climbs ranging from super-beginner-easy to bloody difficult! I have now been three times and it never ceases to be a great place. I honestly couldn't comment on the instructors as I was... More

We do appreciate hearing from experienced climbers and their views on the wall and setting as we are not the tallest climbing wall but do we try to have a decent range of interesting challenges for all levels: glad there was enough to keep you interested and challenged.

Called in here while on circular walk. Needed a cuppa and loo and staff very helpful and friendly. We were able to use the coin operated drink & snack machines + loo. Reasonable prices. Watching the children enjoying the climbing walls and seeing facilities I can highly recommend it. Not many indoor places in the Lake district for the frequent... More

Climbing in the borrowdale valley followed by abseiling. A small friendly group led by Adam and Dappy who were great. Encouraging but no pressure. Lotsof fun

Hello, and thank you for your review. Really pleased that you enjoyed your time climbing outdoors with us. Despite being an indoor climbing wall, we always run outdoor sessions as well and run specific sessions to introduce you to outdoor climbing which is quite different to climbing walls: no brightly coloured holds for one !! I will pass your comments... More

My missus had a thing for archery since we tried it at a festival the year earlier so as we were away for her birthday staying nearby in Penrith I booked this as a birthday surprise which was quite fortuitous as it rained that day which limits your options in the lake district. This was run in a barn by... More

Stopped in here to allow our 12 year old son have a go at bouldering. The place is clean and tidy with plenty of staff around, who were attentive to what was going off and ensuring that toddlers didn't wander beneath people climbing overhangs who were likely to fall on them. Refreshments were from vending machines which was OK, but... More

Hello,and thank you for the great review. I am glad your family enjoyed the bouldering and next time, come for a family climbing lesson and learn how to belay as well as climb. Once you are deemed safe belaying, you can stay and climb for the rest of the day at no extra cost ~ that's not too bad a... More

Our son and his mates really enjoyed the challenge of the wall and the location of the farm alongside the Castlerigg Stone Circle made it an easy place to find - just off the A66.
