Love life, enjoy a challenge and relish in new experiences

Will you dare to fly on the King Swing or relish the confidence that comes from mastering our 15 metre High Ropes Course.

Our facilities are exceptional, our instructors first class and our reputation second to none.


Throughout the year we also offer Activity Drop-In Days

High Ropes Course
Make your way round the seven elements of the course, do the Elvis walk, scramble over the cargo net and take the leap of faith - high ropes, high times.

A mix between treasure hunting and orienteering.  Use GPS units to guide you to a particular location where the aim is to find a 'cache' to open and log your visit.

Laser Clay Shooting RangeLaser Clay Shooting
It's just like clay pigeon shooting except with lasers. Hit the targets and see your points add up on the electronic scoreboard - catch that pigeon now!

Strike Gold with our forest archery range and imagine you are William Tell (apples not included).

Climbing and Abseiling
Conquer our outdoor climbing and abseil tower or, come rain or shine, reach the top and plant your flag on the summit of our indoor climbing wall - King of the mountain.

Zip WireZip Wire
Jump off the climbing tower and zip across Cranecleugh Burn for a thrilling adrenalin rush - earn your flying colours.

Canoeing @KielderCanoeing and Kayaking
Paddle your canoe or kayak and get close to nature in the sheltered and secluded bays of Kielder Water - have a splashing time.

King SwingKing Swing
Start with a gentle swing alongside a friend and build up to a 10 metres high, 100kph adrenaline fuelled King Swing.  For the really brave, go straight to the top and shut your eyes - woohoo.

There is an innovative and accessible trail around the site with pictorial signs for those with learning difficulties offering everyone the chance to try orienteering.

Golf BuggyGolf Buggies
Ride around the site and nature trails on one of our 6 seater golf buggies and not a bunker in sight.

A fun obstacle course with the added interest of tackling the Velcro covered obstacle walls whilst wearing a Velcro suit.  Will you stick to the task!

Rope CoursesLow Ropes Course
They may be close to the ground but you still need to balance your way around the low course - swing low, sweet chariot.

SwimmingHydrotherapy Pool and Infra Red Sauna
