We all had the most amazing time. Staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, both on the activities and in the cafe. We went on ultimate assault which was just the right level, pushing us to try things that were a little scary but not too hard that we couldn't do it. We have some amazing action photos thanks to staff... More

We hired the Ultimate Adventure Centre for our youth group, the Woodcraft Folk. (45 people.) We didn't do any of the outdoor activities, but found the accommodation really lovely, and the kitchen very good. My only complaint is that it was cold in the main room (the cafe) and in the dorms - we were there in December, so central... More

My 10 year old son had the "best two days"! Rated against other, similar, adventure centres in the area, he pipped Ultimate to the top. The Staff were incredibly welcoming and reassuring. Table top Games were ready set out when we arrived at 8am and breakfast served soon after. The atmosphere was calm, prepared and professional. I had never been... More

I don't usually put my children in holiday club as I work part time and can usually juggle the holidays with grandparents etc so it was with trepidation that I dropped my twins (boy and a girl age 9) to the Ultimate Adventure Centre yesterday for a day of Archery and laser shooting!
