I'd hardly call the area "beautiful" or "breathtaking". This is no Lake District. Rock and River is not well situated when it comes to outdoor pursuits - the surrounding countryside is flat, featureless industrially farmed land - so please don't expect any hill walking or climbing in the locality. The nearest proper hills and walking are at least 15 miles... More

Thank you for your review, and your thoughts on the local area. I'm sorry to hear you are not fond of the Lancashire countryside, however, we think it is great, as do many of our clients who visit the centre. We specialise in offering an accessible introduction to the outdoors. We will happily advise anyone who contacts us looking for... More

We visited as a group for a team building few days and had a great time. The activities were very fun, there was something for everyone and they were very well supervised by the friendly staff. The accommodation was all you'd need - plenty of beds and fairly comfortable. The facilities were excellent, with multiple warm showers, toilets, comfortable sofas,... More

This large building is set in the beautiful countryside and is a real treat to stay in. We stayed in the bunk house which had a games and to room, a kitchen/dining room and comfy bedrooms, all of which had everything we needed for a comfy stay. There is a wide range of activities available and all the staff are... More

Took my team of 23 on a team building exercise and the day couldn't have gone any better. Well organised, interesting and interactive at all times. Every single member of my team had a different highlight and it really helped us pull together. Highly recommended

Our 10year old daughter has had birthday parties, school holiday activities days, school activity day and a trip there with Brownies.... Never a dull moment! Excellent value and a great way to tire out kids during school hols. Meals could have less chips, but it keeps them happy!
