Great day at Rookin House. We woke up to really bad weather and we were a bit sceptical that we would enjoy the experience but we booked clay pigeon shooting followed by quad biking. All staff are very welcoming and the owner Al made sure that as novices at shooting we were quickly hitting the clays. Wish we had booked... More

Had a great time as a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 9 & 10. Popped in here on the off chance and managed to book Archery and the ArgoCat. Both did not disappoint...the kids loved the Archery, something they wouldn't normally do. What can I say about the ArgoCat! If you love thrills you'll love this...was borderline crazy... More

Excellent 1 hour Quad bike experience. The guide was very informative and really taught me how to ride properly. The place is set in such a beautiful area, we will definitely be back next time we visit the lakes!

I had never been here before. Visited as part of a stag weekend in a large group of 20 people. We decided as a group to do quad biking, shooting, archey and clay pigeon. Managing a group of this size was not easy. We were split into two groups and cycled round the activities as groups. This was well managed... More

I'd been quad biking here several years ago and as my husband and I were visiting the Lakes I wanted to visit again as I knew he'd love the experience. It didn't disappoint. After getting kitted up, Ali took us round the fields gradually introducing us to more challenges. We then went into the woods and up higher. The terrain... More

We visited today for my brother in law's 21st birthday. We did shooting and go-karting and it was so much fun! Really well ran. Had a great day, thanks to Barry, our instructor!

We enjoyed it so much we decided to go on to do the air rifle shooting. Again the guy was very attentive helping my... More

This year we tried quad biking and horse riding one day followed by archery and air rifles the next. We all enjoyed each activity and found all staff to be very friendly and... More

We needed somewhere to go during our visit to the lovely scenic Lake District that would provide some fun filled activities for the adults and teenage children and Rookin House did just that! Clay pigeon shooting gave us all an experience to remember and is something we will definitely do again all together. There was quad biking suitable for all... More

Had a great time at Rookin House. Staff were friendly and helpful and they have a neat setup with a variety of activities. They were very accommodating in slotting in something on the day for us, even though they were clearly quite busy all day The place is situated on a farm with nice views all around. We tried fishing... More
