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.

We booked a session kayaking on Derwentwater as a treat for a birthday. We highly recommend it. The best views of the lake are definitely from the middle of it - the sun was shining and the water was so calm! Our instructor was brilliant, he tried out a few games to build our confidence on the water, and we... More

This centre is well run and well organised. They applt all the necessary safety rules etc without being heavy handed or burdensome. There is equipment to hire and this all looked to be of fairly typical mid range stuff. There is a really good variety of wall types and routes and a decent bouldering room. I would recommend this for... More

Heather our lesson leader was fantastic. We had an hours 1:1 tuition as we arrived quite early. from start to finish it was well organised and the training allowed us to then spend another few hours climbing by ourselves as we'd mastered the basics. For £15 per person we thought this was good value. Thanks Keswick climbing wall - keep... More

A friend and I went for a kayaking morning with Sam from Keswick Climbing Wall recently. We both had a great time - lots of fun and good value as only the two of us in the group. The centre provided cagouls, buoyancy jackets and fleeces as it was a cold day. We were then driven from the climbing wall... More
