For families with young children, or groups who want a soft introduction to the activity, we recommend Honister Ghyll. This option takes you on a gentle uphill scramble, rock hopping and wading through crystal clear pools of water, whilst staying fairly dry above the knee. We can easily add in extra challenges along the way, with steeper scrambles, some jumping and swimming through pools and a tunnel crawl. Children always love to take turns leading the group and picking the route, so this is a great venue for a bit of team building. If you have a group with a wide mix of abilities, let us know in advance and we can arrange to include some short roped climbs up a series of water falls and an ascent of the steep walled section at the top. Though groups often change at the meeting point, we are happy to meet you at your accommodation prior to driving down, if you would rather get kitted up in your rooms. After the session, hot drinks will be provided for the whole group.


*Please note that under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

getting there

To meet for our activity, you simply drive down the spectacularly beautiful Borrowdale Valley, until you get to the National Trust Carpark in Seatoller (parking fees apply). From the carpark, it’s just a 5 minute walk to our get-in point and, after the session, we simply walk back down the road to the carpark.
