Rope Runners was founded by Kevin and Jo Ellis, a husband and wife team who’s philosophy is to encourage children to participate fully in the high ropes adventure. Course instructors are fully practiced in rescue techniques so it’s impossible to get stranded but clients are encouraged to problem solve for themselves whilst out on the course. Safety is the overriding priority at this well run facility and staff are always on hand to give advice and assistance if required.

In addition to schools, Rope Runners also work closely with the Scout Association, Girl Guiding UK and many other youth groups and clubs. All activities are available for participants aged 6 and over and the centre also offer woodland camping, camping on the hill, Bunker sleepovers and Bunk house accommodation. Whether you need require instructors or want to supply your own a package can be tailored to your groups needs.
