  • So good for many sports and recreational activities like indoor cycling, climbing and skiing, as well as sailing of course! Residentials are great here too. Staff are helpful and friendly.
  • Fantastic for climbing, well set routes and plenty of lead climbs at heights of up to 15m. Never fail to enjoy my time here.
  • I climb here every week and there is a large selection of really good top rope routes and also lead routes. There's a couple of auto belays if you need them and a smallish bouldering area.
  • Great place to climb with plenty of routes to choose from. Overhang is amazing!
  • Went here for a Church youth weekend away, the activities were amazing and the facilities here are awesome, especially the large playing field!
