Mount Cook is dedicated to providing access to a range of exciting outdoor activities and learning for all. We believe you are never too old to try something new: kayaking on Carsington Reservoir, rock-climbing on Black Rocks, or learning how to build a water-proof shelter in our bush craft sessions.

Our environmentally friendly purpose-built Centre has modern bedrooms, with en suite bathroom facilities. Our brand new Glamping Pods are now also available to book! Each Pod has bunk beds for 4, with en suite toilet and washbasin. For those who like to sleep under the stars, camping facilities are available on site for 40 guests, with equipment available to hire on request.

To keep energy levels up after a full day of outdoor activities, we provide full catering in our impressive glass-fronted Main Dining Hall serving hot, nutritious meals throughout the day. Our Dining Hall can seat up to 120 at one time, and is a flexible space which can be adjusted to suit any occasion or seating arrangements.

We welcome groups big and small to our Centre, with exclusive use or shared occupation. Unique features of our Centre include an indoor climbing wall, an on-site high ropes course, a 10m high rooftop terrace providing 360 degree views of the surrounding area, and 5 acres of wild land to explore.

Awarded full accreditation from the Institute of Outdoor Learning, our engaging programmes of activities have been recognised for their emphasis on safe practice, education, personal and social development, and of course, enjoyment! Our activities include high-ropes, archery, bush craft and den-building, team challenges, orienteering, rock-climbing, water-sports and caving.

Our Centre is in close proximity to some fantastic facilities including Chatsworth House, Matlock Bath, Alton Towers and the Peak District as a whole. We are in a perfect location for outdoor enthusiasts to also enjoy hiking and cycling!

Looking to organise a party, celebration, wedding or conference? Give us a call! Our Centre makes a unique and impressive venue for most events.
