Mount Cook Adventure Centre

Mount Cook is a brand new not-for-profit Adventure Centre, based on the outskirts of the Peak District. We use the spectacular natural environment surrounding our Centre, to offer a range of exciting outdoor adventure activities and engaging educational workshops. We welcome groups big and small, and people of all ages and abilities to our Centre! Unique features of Mount Cook Adventure Centre include an onsite high-ropes course, a 10m high rooftop terrace and 5 acres of wild land to explore.

We are dedicated to providing unique outdoor experiences which will broaden your horizons. Our activities will help you discover new opportunities, expand your appetite for learning, and equip your with valuable skills which will last a lifetime. Whether your scaling great heights on our high-ropes course, unleashing your inner Robin Hood with our archery sessions, or learning to paddle with our kayaking courses, we believe that you are never too old to learn a new skill and overcome new challenges.

Our mission: To provide access to the outdoors and outdoor activities for all, especially young people and those who would not otherwise have the opportunity.

After an action-packed day of activities, a good night’s sleep is very important! Our eco-friendly Centre can sleep up to 140 guests, plus a further 40 guests on our secure onsite camping paddock. Each bedroom sleeps four guests, with complimentary bedding and en-suite bathrooms in every room. Wheelchair accessible rooms are also available. All of our rooms are equipped with special access key cards and secure lockers, keeping your belongings safe whilst you’re out and about enjoying the outdoors!

To keep energy levels up after a full day of outdoor activities, we provide full catering facilities serving hot, nutritious meals throughout the day. Take a minute to relax in our glass-fronted Main Dining Hall, and enjoy fantastic views into the Ecclesbourne Valley whilst eating your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our large hall can cater for up to 150 guests at one time, with servery style catering. Our Main Dining Hall is a flexible space which can be adjusted to suit any occasion or seating arrangements.

Our Centre is also available to hire for all kinds of events including AGMs, children and adult birthday parties, celebrations, conferences and even weddings! Booking is essential, please contact our Centre to make an enquiry: 01629 823 702. 

Big Kids Weekend!

31 Aug 2019 - 1 Sep 2019

If you are suffering from a bout of adult apathy, then it's time to reconnect with your inner kid, scrape your knees and get those jeans muddy ... because being a 'responsible adult' doesn't have to be as boring as buying a new soup blender.
