Enjoy a trip along the River Torridge, our sheltered estuary.

For most sessions we use sit-on-tops, which allow for two people and as the name suggests you sit on top.


Climbing is an exhilarating sport that can appeal to all levels of ability. 


On site we have two climbing walls. 


We have a low level traversing wall to practise climbing skills and a full height climbing tower with two walls to stretch and challenge


Nock... Draw... Loose!

Hit the target, measure your progress and finish with some fun archery based games and competitions.

Archery teaches concentration, co-ordination and self-discipline.


Your friends haul you to the top of the tallest pole, pull the quick release and before you know it you are flying along at speed.

Fast, furious and great fun.

We have a mini-zip on our team assault course too.


If two blades on your paddle is not for you, then why not try your hand at Open Canoeing.
