Meet the team
Manager recommends: Perfect for group breaks – our staff can create an action-packed programme of activities including abseiling, kayaking, aquaseiling and canyoning. Great for walking holidays surrounded by beautiful scenery, there's something for every walker from the low level riverside walks or Helm Crag and Easedale Tarn for the more adventurous.
