Lake District Activity Centre
We couldn’t wait to explore our beautiful, luxury accommodation with the most incredible views.
The climbing wall was waiting for us and as soon as we were kitted out in our safety gear, we were off! We all took to it really well and were impressed with everyone’s supper efforts. As the morning went on and our confidence grew, we tackled the harder, steeper walls.
Next was abseiling. First we started on the indoor abseiling wall, then we all got very brave and tried the outdoor wall that was a 50 meter drop! We were all really brave and had such fun.
The next adrenaline fuelled activity was the zip wire which gave us spectacular sights of the surrounding area as we whizzed down it.
We explored Tarn Hows, a spectacular and stunning woodland area with a huge lake in the middle surrounded by rolling hills. We walked around the lake which was about 3 miles long, taking in the majestic views.
Another glorious day in the warm sunshine was spent at the popular tourist spot, Devil’s Bridge. This magnificent three-arched bridge, dates from the 12th or 13th century, and is now an ancient monument.
One evening we spent playing archery. We had great fun lining up the arrow with a steady hand and a keen eye. We all got much better at hitting the target as the evening went on.
At our accommodation we had our own sensory room. It was the perfect way to relax and unwind after our active days.
Another fun activity on site was the high swing, where we flew high into the air whilst listening to our favourite music.
Everyone loved challenging each other to a few games of pool at the local pub.
There were some fantastic play areas for us to have fun on.
Our bush craft day was amazing! We learnt how to make bread and cook it over an open fire. We went on a hunt for sticks and with the ones we had collected we made picture frames. All topped off by a camp fire, toasting marshmallows. A real treat.
Kitted up in our caving equipment and we set off to the Yorkshire Dales to a beautiful cave at Yordas. The entrance consists of a stone archway with steps leading directly to the main chamber. This main chamber has a stream running through it and is approximately 50 metres wide, 15 metres deep and 15 metres high.
The day was spent on the water of the beautiful lake Windermere; the largest lake in the UK which is 11 miles long for our canoeing day out. The sun was shining as we paddled around some of the stunning lake with its amazing scenery of the mountains and forests. The lake shimmered in the sunlight and we took in the breath-taking sights.
How wonderful! A surprise presentation where we all received certificates for our amazing efforts in completing the activities and challenges that were set throughout the week.
