Our mission…

‘Using outdoor experiences, special places and adventures to inspire real learning, discovery and development.’

“We are run by a dedicated team of staff with many years experience and great enthusiasm for the benefits and wonders of the outdoors! Our approach is to find out what you need, understand your objectives and then apply our knowledge and experience to meet your expectations.

Our facilities can work for groups young and not so young, formal or informal, independent and self-catering or fully programmed. Whatever your objectives, we are ideally located to take advantage of the Peak District National Park, with access on foot or bike from our doorstep.

Our activities can be tailored to your needs. You might want to abseil, learn to ride a bike, seek a quiet walk in a beautiful environment, use indoor training facilities or enjoy gathering around a campfire. We will ask you what you want from your visit, and then use our knowledge of activities to ensure you get the outcomes and enjoyment you are seeking either here on your visit, or at a venue of your choice.

So, whether you are a school seeking to improve engagement with learning and better staff-pupil relations, a group of friends visiting the area to do your own thing in the Peak District or an enthusiast wishing to be coached by an expert in an activity, we can provide these for you.

Have a browse through our website then contact us to see how we can help.”
