If you are staying in our accommodation, or visiting the area for a day, we have a wide range of different fun outdoor activities that we can offer.  Whether you want to zoom down our zip wire, explore local caves or go for a leisurely stroll – finishing in a local hostelry to warm yourself by an open fire – we have something for you.  The activities take advantage of our fantastic grounds, location and staff expertise.  Most activities are instructor led, but some you can run yourselves using the resources we can provide.

If you’d like to do some activities during your visit please contact us to discuss the different options as we can tailor the activities to meet your needs.  We have also created a booklet you can download which has details of what to wear for each activity.
