I just had the best Hen ever! We did a half day of activities including go karting, archery, the argo cat, and clay pigeon shooting. Everything was such good fun, the staff are great for a bit of banter and very helpful. Have read the other reviews and will say it's not a place to go if you don't like... More

We came here for an activity day doing archery and horse riding while on holiday in the Lakes and it was just what we wanted. It sometimes feels a bit disorganised but it goes with the charm and family-run friendly feel of the place and is nothing major! The woman doing the archery (I think her name was Rachel) and... More

Enjoyed a half-day of activities here as part of a stag 'do'. Strangely, the groom-to-be was unable to come due to illness, so it was more of a stagless 'do' really. The activities came thick and fast and were all good fun. Our package included clay pigeon shooting, archery, quad-biking, go-karting and a ride on the argo-cat. What I liked... More

Can't commend Rookin House highly enough.... excellent morning of shooting -Archery and Air Rifle ' s with James, who was a great laugh and make the games competitive and enjoyable. We concluded with Clay Pigeon shooting which was a barrel of laughs.... 25 shots, taken by Alastair. Thanks for a great time.

As group of 10 on a stag weekend we did the clay shooting in the morning and karting in the afternoon both of which we all enjoyed even if some of us were not so good. When we did the shooting everything was explained in a professional and entertaining manner which put us all at ease. All in all excellent... More

Great place. Well run by nice people. I have done clay pigeon shooting twice before and this was good. My girlfriend had not done it and enjoyed it and would go again. Many different activities on offer and all look good. john c and laura from suffolk.
