Just had a wonderful day climbing, cannoeing, archery and much more. Fun filled day, really friendly staff, loads of mud in great surroundings. Well worth the money. Thank you to Ben and Eddie and all the staff

They are very friendly and helpful here although activities are nothing special and quite expensive. I like the fact that they cater for a wide range of people, many of which require special care. Needs an injection of ideas...all a little lacklustre.More

Great place, been here many times and it never disappoints. Great activities, great staff, reasonably priced for a fun packed day. A gem hidden away in Mawdesley.
