Climbing at Herd FarmActivities

Your visit to Herd Farm can be as active or relaxed as you choose. As an activity centre and have a wide range of activities for you to select from and join in with your friends or group. We split our offer into high and low level activities. High level generally ‘packapunch’ of an experience be it high in the sky or that of demanding more skill, strength, team work and trust. Low level activities whilst they can be challenging they tend to be undertaken nearer the earth, albeit they often still require skill, team work and fun. Please talk to us about any specific ideas you have.

The Herd Farm ethos is that of valuing individuals having a go, trying their best but not necessarily getting to the ‘top of the ladder.’
