“Fantastic mini break adventure!”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I booked a couples adventure package for my husbands 30th through clearsky. We stayed in a fabulous glamping pod in castleward which was surrounded by beautiful scenery. Also included was bike hire and archey. The pricing was reasonable and the accommodation was great.
I have to admit I was dubious when we set off for our activities as I never cycle and, although my legs and bum ached the next day, it was brilliant. The trails designed for biking were fantastic - weaving through the forest and grounds of the stunning castleward. For me they were a treat to the eye to cycle round while giving my mountain biking crazy husband a fun filled time as he sped through the trees. The archery was just as much fun. Havin recently injured my shoulder I couldn't shoot for too long otherwise we may not have left.. the perfectionist in the hubby wanted all his arrows in gold! We will definitely be heading back for more robin hood training when I am mended!!
I have no doubts we will return here. Even though my other half has several bikes (expensive to boot) we don't envisage taking them along as the clearsky rentals were superb and save the hassle of taking your own along. After spotting the toddler trailers for hire we hope to take our little boy with us next time (maybe this august for his 2nd birthday!) We also spied some adventure playgrounds for kids so plenty to do family wise. I also want to try out the laser shooting on offer and may brave the water activities next time.

“A friendly and well run outdoor activity centre.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We booked in for a full activity day for my sister's 30th. I've been once before and enjoyed my days kayaking, so I was interested to try out the other activities. I was a tad underwhelmed to hear that our canoeing had been cancelled due to poor weather and substituted for mountain biking! However, it turned out that this was my favourite activity. We cycled along several miles of scenic custom made tracks that were challenging/fun when attacked at speed! Afterwards we went for an indoor option of laser shooting and archery which again were highly enjoyable. A big positive is the attitude and professionalism of the highly personable staff. Really good to see that Mick Hucknall has kept his chin up after hIs music career went south!!! ;) Thanks. Will def use again.

Thanks for such a great review Mielsibub - we are so pleased that you had such a good time and that your sister was pleased with her birthday day out! Our very own Mick Hucknell and Davy both enjoyed their days and said you were a great group to work with - Mick even said he would perform a little solo next time you're here! Thanks again guys, hope to see you soon.

“A great day mountain biking”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The centre has a variety of acticities to offer, we decided to do a half day mountain biking. The bikes were great, and the trails were nicely varied, well sign posted and reasonably accessible. The staff were very helpful and friendly and it is a beautiful location to pass a day in the fresh air.
