Had an awesome time when we went with work, the staff was almost more fun than the activities and it seems everyone, visitors and the people working there, had a really good time. Would love to come back anytime! Thanks a mill!

We, a team of 33 people, had a brilliant time in Blackwater Outdoor Activities. The very experienced team in Blackwater Outdoor Activities looked after us very well, we spent the whole day including lunch (which was plenty and delicious). The place is very structured and clean. The advisors would encourage you to try it at least but will not put... More
