The activity we did was great. The female instructor was fantastic with out young people. What let the experience down was the poor service in the Hungry Heifer Cafe. We waited and 1hr 10mins for a cheese and ham toaster amongst other things and when we complain the man was very abrupt and gave various excuses. He offered us a... More

Hello and thank you for your frank review. I can only apologise for the delay you experienced in service at The Hungry Heifer. The cafe had only just opened for the first time when you visited and staff were still getting to grips with the running of the service, which turned out to be very busy indeed that day. This...

This is a very versatile centre that can cater to just about all levels of difficulty. Instructors on hand if you need them. My two daughters started at 3 and reached 5B within one hour with one instructor between them. Good rope skills. Lots of different routes (for each grade) and endless picn-n-mix opportunities. Bouldering walls provide more free-style challenges.

We only found out about this from Rosie (?) doing the climbing wall in the centre of Keswick today. £3.50 per child for outdoor adventure including a zip line, archery, maze, bug hotels, sheep spotting, slides, skittles and more. Its for under 8s too which is nice as I find older kids tend to take over on things like this... More

We found this place whilst on holiday as we were looking for somewhere to try climbing. The centre is brilliant. Staff are incredibly friendly.
