Activity update for families and small groups, schools and climbers

Update for Schools

We are running a range of day courses for schools (both at Bowles but we are also visiting schools) which can be run within the governments Covid-19 guidelines. These courses will provide the students with a amazingly fun, safe, secure and educational course in the outdoors.

Schools groups and other clients, please email us to discuss your residence visit. Our email is

Update for Climbers

Please see the Rock climbing at Bowles page.


Families, birthday parties and experiences

Celebrate outdoors with your friends and family and pick up a new skill – an outdoor activity or birthday party at Bowles is packed full of fun, excitement and even a bit of learning!

PLEASE NOTE: we follow all Government Covid Guidelines. Party Rooms are only available for groups of six or fewer, which includes any adults, including organising parents. If you want to have 12 children at your party, we cannot offer a room and will run activities-only. We will change this in line with changing guidelines. Please don’t assume the rules will have changed by the time of your party.

Rock climbing at Bowles

We are pleased to be able to open the rocks as normal for August 2021, there are still some restrictions for July. There will be many Bowles groups on site during the weekdays in August, so it is likely the the Easy Gully Area the the Hargreaves Area will be in constant use.

As there are shared toilets, please ensure that you wash your hands regularly and only use the toilets one person at a time.
