Outdoor Activities Lake District

Outdoor Activity Weekends

Our outdoor activity weekends are run in the Lake District predominantly in and around the Ullswater lake area which offers fantastic locations. Our outdoor activities in the Lake District are based at Watermillock which is perfectly located giving us exceptional use of the immediate surroundings including private lake access and the use of crags, gorges and mountains for a variety of activities. Our outdoor centre offers exceptional facilities to our clients with plenty of secure parking, toilets, showers, camping and changing facilities. We also have a brand new meeting room with full kitchen facilities ideal for a coffee and briefing each morning before we head out.

The Challenges

  • Dates: April-September
  • Group size: 6+
  • Price: £150 + vat per person

Steep and Deep

  • Day 1 is on Ullswater in our open canoes where we take you on a lake journey including a short session on the small River Goldrill that flows into Ullswater at Glenridding. We also visit a lakeside rock face where you will undertake a 50ft abseil. A fantastic barbeque is provided for lunch and the finale of the day is a cliff jump where you have the opportunity to brave a 25ft jump into the depths of Ullswater with the aid of a wetsuit.
  • Day 2 sees you ascend Pinnacle Ridge on St Sunday Crag which is one of the best Lake District scrambles, before traversing around onto Helvellyn and then travelling along the length of Striding Edge to descend back into Glenridding.

Water and More Water

  • Day 1 is spent on Ullswater in our single and tandem sea kayaks undertaking a lake explorer journey and then after lunch we take you to Angle Tarn Beck for a Gorge walk. Gorge walking is a great session full of scrambling over, through, under and around numerous obstacles but always with water being the main ingredient.
  • Day 2 again is on Ullswater but exploring a different area of the lake and using open canoes this time. The last activity of the weekend is raft building where you can design the best or worst raft possible in the hope that it will support you and your group to cross the lake.

All of our weekend outdoor activity packages include catering during activities, all technical clothing and equipment, highly qualified and experienced instructors, photo memoir of your weekend, free camping at our farm location (tents and mats provided).
