Our adventure near Hawkshead (the jewel in our crown) has always proved a popular day out. Built on a side of a hill, it feels seriously high. And that's because it is. Enjoy our epic Tree Top Adventure in the Lakes. Swinging through the canopy, wiping out at the bottom of zip wires and going on an adventure brings people together like nothing else we've ever seen. It really does. You'll fly 200 metres across the top of the Grizedale Beck and marvel at the forest canopy 18 metres up a magnificent Douglas Fir. You and your tribe can expect the ultimate adventure at Grizedale. You can get off the beaten track and enjoy our NEW forest adventure with Go Ape Forest Segway - an epic experience with a down to earth twist. And Grizedale Forest is also home to our Tree Top Junior Adventure for Tiny Tarzans. Release your little monkeys onto a Go Ape course designed for them. No one loves adventure more than kids! Zip Trekking Adventure is a brand NEW experience. The course is a network of seven tandem zip lines that traverse the sky-scraping Douglas Firs at Grizedale Forest, providing customers with an exhilarating experience of flying way above the forest floor, and seeing the area in a completely new way. Please arrive 15 minutes before Zip Trekking Adventure.
Couldn't have asked for a better day. Dave and Jason were brilliant instructors. Although pretty scary, we had a fantastic day. All incredibly safe, but so much fun, especially the final zip over the car park! Thanks again for a great day, couldn't have been better.

Been down a few times now, easy accessable by foot... Once you walk through the small tunnel you will be amazed once inside. But the cavern is not the only thing here. Bring a strong torch to explore the mine tunnels, (very safe), and also other local quarries such as Black Hole Quarry, and also slaters bridge...

Found this walk on the OS circular walks of the Lake District and it didn’t disappoint.
Really fantastic scenery despite very wet terrain in parts. We were lucky to go when snow adorned the peaks making it almost picture perfect. Not too strenuous so our ten year old was fine and we saw plenty of people with much younger children the photos speak for themselves

Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon of gorge scrambling, expertly guided by our good-humoured expert Adam. It's not easy to find an activity to suit both my 13 and 16 year old sons, but this certainly fits the bill. Adam ensures that it's inclusive and fun and encourages you to push yourself and give the more challenging bits a try without pressurising anyone. Loved jumping into the pools. How refreshing to get photos afterwards without being stung for an exorbitant additional charge and so promptly. I'd recommend this unreservedly and hope we'll be back some time to do it again or try some of the other activities at Joint Adventures. Thank you!

Its only £2.50 to get in, and well worth it.. The "curator", gave us a lovely history lesson on how the school operated way back in time, so interesting... Showed us where Wordsworth sat and etched his name into the desk.. Also contains the headmasters room, and a few museum pieces upstairs, All in all a wonderful little place...Also further up the hill, is the lovely church

The beauty of this lake and surrounding countryside should be viewed from both sides of the lake wether walking, cycling or by car.
We love visiting here and Grasmere Village, our favourite place in the Lakes. The light and Sunshine can provide a wonderful backdrop for photographs.

More than ten miles in length, Windermere is England's largest lake that offers a wide variety of summer recreation including cruises, fishing, boating, sailing and scuba diving.
A must if in the area, get yourself on a cruise or hire a boat. The Lake is full on interesting things to see and do. We went on a pleasure cruise, what a super trip.

Indoor Climbing Venue, suitable for all ages in the heart of The Lake District. Offering Taster sessions, Private Lessons and Kids Clubs throughout the week, and open late for experienced climbers.Our parent company also offer a wide range of outdoor activities; from kayaking and rock climbing, to gorge scrambling and hiking.
We took our two children here for a kids taster session, once we made a telephone reservation.
The facility is fantastic. Both instructors were very good, very knowledgeable, but most of all, very entertaining, very engaging and very good with the children.
There are two indoor walls the fist one is sort of a horizontal wall where one climbs across rather than up and down. In this area the children got a warm up and some basic tuition, before going to the big "up and down" wall. There everybody got about three or four goes climbing. Then lastly there was a bit of warm down and some games back in the horizontal wall area.
This is a friendly, but professionally managed climbing wall. I thoroughly recommend this as a kids activity, rain or shine.

River Deep Mountain High Activities provides a range of outdoor and adventure sports in the Lake District. We specialise in fun for families, group adventures and team away days. We operate activities in Coniston, Windermere, Ambleside, Rydal, Eskdale and Langdale.
Great day on the Swallows and Amazons adventure with daughter (8) and niece (10).
Kayaked, sailed, jumped off rocks into Coniston and enjoyed a bit of a dip (with the chill taken off with a freshly made hot chocolate afterwards) and generally had a fab time.
Johan, our guide, is a fella who clearly loves and lives his job. Worth every penny, kids loved it (possibly not as much as me though - oops!)
