We are the only activity centre in the lake district national park who offer such a wide variety of activities from horse riding to quad biking to the zip wire and the Madtrax All Terrain Vehicles.
Go Ape Tree Top Adventure
Take one lush, green forest and a healthy dollop of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of tree-top high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip wires; finished off with a liberal dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.
Hadrian’s Wall
For around three centuries, Hadrian’s Wall was a vibrant, multi-cultured frontier sprawling almost 80 miles coast-to-coast. Built by a force of 15,000 men in under six years, it’s as astounding today for its sheer vision as it is for its engineering. Milecastles, barracks, ramparts and forts punctuate a diverse landscape that provides a dramatic backdrop.
Guided Walks
The Lake District National Park has walks for every ability from ambles around lakes to high ridge walks, with a bit of scrambling. You don't need to worry about navigation and can learn from a knowledgeable local about the area. Pick from short, scenic picnic strolls to full days through spectacular landscape. And they're usually free!

Aira Force
