Our son and his mates really enjoyed the challenge of the wall and the location of the farm alongside the Castlerigg Stone Circle made it an easy place to find - just off the A66.

We booked a session kayaking on Derwentwater as a treat for a birthday. We highly recommend it. The best views of the lake are definitely from the middle of it - the sun was shining and the water was so calm! Our instructor was brilliant, he tried out a few games to build our confidence on the water, and we kayaked out to several of the islands in the middle of the lake to go exploring. He even convinced us to jump into the lake off a jetty, and held up his promise to do it too! (Good way to cool down). Hard work but thoroughly rewarding.

Thank 611Alexandra

Hello, and thank you for your great review. I am pleased that you had such a good time kayaking with us. We always try to make a journey to the islands or play some games when kayaking as well as teaching basic technique and going over safety procedure. Jumping in at the end is not compulsory but its great fun - well you have just spent the last 3 hours floating on the lake so you may as well get in it, especially on a hot day !! Come and try Ghyll Scrambling next time if you like getting wet !!

This centre is well run and well organised. They applt all the necessary safety rules etc without being heavy handed or burdensome. There is equipment to hire and this all looked to be of fairly typical mid range stuff.

There is a really good variety of wall types and routes and a decent bouldering room.
I would recommend this for anyone who is a complete beginner or novice, although please note that if this is the case you would need to possibly book a supervised session to teach you the ropes so to speak.
For average climbers there is plenty to keep you occupied and for experienced climbers ditto.
The only thing I would say is that the walls are not the highest of most technical and so for an experienced climber it may be more suitable for a practice session rather than a real challenge.

Hello and many thanks for the great review. I am please that you were impressed enough with our facilities and staff to want to comment so favourably about them. We try hard to maintain high standards of safety without detracting from providing a fun and worthwhile experience for all ages and abilities. While we are not the highest wall as you commented, we do reset routes on a regular basis and try to make sure there is enough to keep all levels of climbers occupied. Also, as you pointed out, if you would like any form of Instruction, you do need to book. Experienced climbers over 18 however can register with us then sign in and be responsible for 2 non experienced climbers. Thank you again for the great review and come and see us again soon.

Heather our lesson leader was fantastic. We had an hours 1:1 tuition as we arrived quite early. from start to finish it was well organised and the training allowed us to then spend another few hours climbing by ourselves as we'd mastered the basics. For £15 per person we thought this was good value. Thanks Keswick climbing wall - keep us the great work.

Hello and thanks for the super review ! We always try to make sure any adults on the lesson finish being capable of continuing belaying safely after the lesson ends then allowing the party to carry on climbing for the rest of the day at no extra cost. We are glad that you feel that this is good value and we hope that you will come back and climb with us again.
