How Stean Gorge - A natural wonder! This spectacular limestone gorge with winding pathways, narrow bridges, underground caves and an active stream still forming mysterious shapes and pools. Hard hat provided (advisable for those places where you have to duck! - wellies recommended. It is a superb natural feature. Small children will need to be supervised as it can be slippy in places near the water's edge. How Stean Gorge is a Site of Special Scientific Interest so it's also protected.

Youâll find fossils forever frozen in the rocks beneath your feet. You can also search for bugs and beasts. Youâll see the clear water beneath the bridges where you may even spot a trout or two. You may even see an otter come for his lunch! Bats lurk in the caves too, but I bet they'll be more frightened of you!

Outdoor Adventures - advance notice required but well worth it! We specialise in outdoor family fun. If you're 7+ years you can take part in abseiling, gorge walking, caving and canoeing. If you are 1m 43cm (4ft 6inches) you can also challenge yourself on our via ferrata -high wire adventure course.

How Stean Gorge is a natural adventure playground - when are you going to visit us?
