Rookin House Activity Centre


Let’s get one thing straight, the more exhausted the kids are after a long day of activities, the more likely they are to sleep soundly a night, giving you the opportunity to unwind at our hotels relaxed and comfortable restaurant and bar. However, finding suitable long lasting things for the kids to do can prove a challenge. To save you the unwanted pressure of thinking on the spot for ideas once your holiday is already in full swing, get to know Rookin House, your one stop shop for all things out door activities.


Rookin House Equestrian and Activity Centre is situated at Troutbeck, a mile and a quarter off the A66, between Penrith and Keswick. It is best to check the map on their website for the exact locale as there are other Troutbecks in the area. The Centre is about a 25 mile drive from Lake Windermere, along a beautiful scenic route. This may seem a little off the beaten track, but trust us it is well worth the extended car journey.


The centre boasts a plethora of outdoor challenges and sports. From the frivolous to the more complex, technical tasks. Sample the likes of quad biking, fishing, archery and JCB operation. The centre offers family packages, as well as individual options for adults and children. There are even couples packages, where you can choose from various combinations of activities to do throughout the day. Also, on offer at this fabulous venue is air riffle practice, human bowling (not for the faint hearted), tree climbing, Dakar off road (4×4 driving with a difference) and Madtrax (sort of like quad biking but way more extreme).


Visitors are guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. In addition to all the unique activities on offer, the site itself boasts a spectacular lakeland backdrop. What could be more exhilarating than gliding down a zip wire with the timeless beauty of the onlooking peaks and hills, either side of you?
