A deposit of 25% per person for all activities and accommodation will be taken at the time of booking. This deposit is Non-refundable in the event you wish to cancel the booking. Please ensure that you have adequate insurance to cover the cost of your booking in full. Insurance for UK based holidays and activities may be purchased at a number of on-line sites.

Health Restrictions:

For the purposes of your safety it is your responsibility to inform us before undertaking any event of any relevant medical concern that may make it inadvisable for you to undertake any activities with us.


We reserve the right to alter our prices at any time and without prior notice.


All discounts are at the management’s discretion and we reserve the right to change or remove special offers without prior notice. All requirements must be met in full before customers qualify for any discounted rates. Requirements include but are not limited to: correct discount codes being quoted, proof of age (Family discount), or minimum group sizes, where applicable.

Cancellation Policy:

A 25% deposit will be taken at the time of booking and this is per person and is non-refundable. All bookings must be finalised 4 weeks before activity date.

Changes to your booking - We cannot refund any payments if you change your mind after the booking has been finalised.

Client non-attendance - Please plan your journey to arrive at your activity location / meeting point at the agreed time in your confirmation. We work to a strict time schedule and late arrivals will result in your session being cancelled. We cannot be held responsible for your inability to attend and no refunds will be issued. We strongly advise you take out a travel insurance policy which covers activities of this sort in case you lose money as a result of such an occurrence.

Client unable to take part - If the client cannot take part in any activity due to either physical impairment (including but not limited to injury or illness) we will be unable to offer a refund. If you are aware of any reason why you may not be able to take part please give us advance warning in order that we may advise an appropriate course of action. If you’re suffering from any illness or injury at the time of booking we advise you not to confirm your booking until you have been given the all-clear by your doctor. If you are refused an activity due to being under the influence (or appearing to be under the influence) of drugs or alcohol, no refund will be issued.

Weather conditions - By their nature some of our activities are subject to weather conditions. The weather is unfortunately outside of our control. On the rare occasions where conditions make it impossible for us to provide the activities within our strict safety guidelines we may need to cancel them. If we have to cancel for reasons outside of our control, we will tell you as soon as possible and will offer you either an alternative activity or reschedule your activity. The company is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or other incidental expenses incurred by you in attending an activity which is cancelled for any reason.

Safety - We reserve the right to reschedule or relocate any activity if we feel it would be in the interests of our client’s safety.

General - Should the management decide that any situation qualifies for a full or partial refund (or provision of goods or services in lieu of an activity) this will be on an individual basis. Groups must be aware that any members of the group able to attend and take part in an activity should do so. Deciding not to take part will not qualify for a refund under any circumstances.

The company is unable to reimburse travel, accommodation or other incidental expenses incurred by you in attending an activity which is cancelled for any reason.


These terms and conditions do not affect your statutory rights as a consumer and are governed in accordance with English law. The purchaser and The company agree that any proceedings are under the jurisdiction of the English courts. All of the clauses and sub clauses of our terms and conditions are independent of one another. If one clause is invalid or unenforceable then this will not affect any other clause or sub clause.
