Mount Cook Adventure Centre first opened in July 2016 and is located on the outskirts of the Peak District. Overlooked by the dramatic face of Black Rocks and surrounded by beautiful countryside, our purpose built Centre is an ideal wedding venue for all lovers of the great outdoors!

Our impressive glass-fronted main Dining Hall has capacity for up to 200 guests, offering full catering, a licensed bar and a speaker system available for the use of our guests. We take a flexible approach to catering for your big day! Simply let us know what food you have in mind, and we will endeavor to serve your desired menu. External caterers serving hog roasts or specialty dishes are also welcome.

We have accommodation available for up to 140 guests within our Centre, with the majority of bedrooms sleeping 4 guests in bunk beds, all with en suite bathroom facilities. Outside, we offer unique accommodation for a further 40 guests in our new wooden Glamping Pods. Our Pods also sleep up to four guests in bunk bed accommodation, with an en suite toilet and wash basin. For those who like to sleep under the stars, camping is available on our secure paddock, with tents and camping equipment available to hire if required.

Why not book some of our exciting outdoor activities for you and your guests to enjoy? We offer a range of activity sessions from high-ropes, archery, bush craft and den building, orienteering, to team challenges. The majority of our activities are suitable for children aged 6+, and we require a minimum of 8 people per activity session. Let us know if you would like to include some activities, and we will integrate the sessions into your weekend.

Our external site offers 5 acres of land, including 3 flat activity fields suitable for gazebos, a designated campfire pit, a forested area and an area of special scientific interest!
