Uninstructed activities

Visiting leaders may instruct these activities themselves, or our own qualified instructors can run the sessions at an additional cost.

These activities are spread out across the site and available all day. Groups can plan their own itineraries and pick and choose what they want to try. Booking is advised, but not always necessary.

Bouldering wall Perfect for children aged six plus, the bouldering wall introduces youngsters to climbing. Located next to the climbing tower. Supportive footwear is advised when using this equipment.

Maze Maze Our newly refurbished maze offers a real challenge for all ages. Suitable for groups of up to 24, the maze carries a medieval theme with youngsters tasked to get to the eight-foot-high castle in the centre, while enjoying activities and brain teasers along the way. The maze takes around an hour to complete and group leaders can oversee the activity from vantage points.
Nightline Nightline The nightline can be tackled in the dark or with blindfolds during the day. A team-building exercise, groups follow a rope trail in the dark together through the trees and over obstacles. A good torch is required if tackling at night, to ensure safe passage to and from the course.
