Third visit to the farm. First time for go carting then riding lessons and today the youngsters went pony trekking. Two hours trekking was enough for the first time but they thoroughly enjoyed it. In the background they was also other activities including clay pigeon shooting. Plenty to do for everyone.

Wife and I did an hour horse ride. Wife liked they had hair nets to put under helmet! We had beautiful weather to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Would have like to have trotted a bit more though. They could have help facilitate photos. Highly recommend. They also have loads of other activities which while we didn't do looked fun.

We visited Rookin House during a trip from Australia. Our Bogan (read CHAV for Brits) children (12 and 15) had the time of their life horse riding, driving an excavator (JCB for the Brits), clay pigeon shooting, archery and quad bikes. We went having prebooked and not really knowing what to expect. What we found was the most efficiently organised... More

On arrival the staff were friendly and we were greeted by the most adorable dogs!! We started with the quad bikes and despite the rain / wind (thankfully... More

We were giving a leaflet to read and a book to sign which didn’t take long and before we knew it we were getting jackets to start our Argo Cat activity. Our activities were led by... More

Fantastic relaxed and friendly place. Loved the go carting the craziest and funniest experience ever. Staff so friendly and the most adorable animals. Loved the gorgeous collies who just made the day for me. Great value for money. Thumbs up to Ali who was very patient

We first found Rookin when staying nearby in November. The team were so accommodating and friendly and my 3 year old daughter fell in love with Bracken. When we returned to centre Parcs this week we took the opportunity to pay another visit. The indoor arena facility was particularly good as the snow set in! My daughter enjoyed a lead... More

After being let down by the Calvert Trust in Keswick, I took my daughter with Down Syndrome to Rookin Park. I rang the day before and they accommodated us the following day. The staff were brilliant. They were so friendly and patient with my step-daughter. I'm pretty sure we ran well over the half hour! I can't speak highly enough... More
