Visited to take part in dressage competitions. Easy access from the A66/Troutbeck road. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the reception we received encouraged one of us to go back for a riding lesson. Caring and encouraging instructor with an eye for safety. On other occasions we have watched holidaymakers being taken out for "first rides" and been... More

We had a really good day, the activities were well supervised and lots of fun, We would all recommend Rookin House to friends and family. If your looking for a different day out give Rookin House a go I'm sure you will love... More

Had a great half day visit here. You can choose whatever you want to do here - you don't have to stick to the 'packages' they list on their website. Give them a call, tell them which activities you want to do and if you give them enough notice they will schedule it all for you. I wanted half a... More

I have always wanted to try clay pigeon shooting so I tried the introductory session. An instructor was present at all times. He was very helpful showing me what to do. I will be back. My wife and I also tried the archery. This was a great hit with the wife and so we will definitely come back. There is... More

Alister's attitude towards the quad biking group was appalling! I can honestly say I would never pay to visit this centre again. There was a very limited induction and absolutely no 'fun' element to the experience. A very unhappy customer.

We went here on 2nd August for the clay pigeon shooting & quad biking. It was brilliant and a new experience for us which we really enjoyed. This place is really safe and the staff are really helpful. Alistair helped us with the clay pigeon shooting and he really explained everything so well and was very informative. The weather was...

We booked the self catering barn for the weekend. Had a great family get together. Activities were great and we would definitely visit again. Barn was like home from home. Great time had by all.

We go to the rookin house farm every summer after arriving from Qatar. We usually do air rifles (where my teen daughter woops everyone) and clay pigeon shooting (where my sone does likewise) This summer the ladies went pony trecking and enjoyed this also. Fantastic day out for the family. Not the cheapest of activities, but for us worth the... More
