High Ropes Course

The Black Rock Outdoors High Ropes Course is in a sheltered woodland walking distance from the accommodation. This is a Developmental Ropes course and designed to be a group activity, encouraging everyone to work together and support each other. 

This can be a half day activity for a group, either on its own or as part of a full Activity Day.

Our instructors are well experienced in coaxing the more nervous and can always come to assist if needed. We also have a Low Ropes Course, which, although designed differently, can be part of a warm up for a longer day.

Raft Building

Raft building can be run as a stand alone activity for groups or as part of a Team Building challenge or including as part of an activity day.

Raft Building is popular with Hen and Stag Parties, Corporate and Management groups and also suited to young people from the age of nine or so upwards.

This is held on a sheltered lake and will be supervised by a qualified instructor who will advise if required and will supply safety support whilst on, or in, the water.

Mountain Boarding

We run introductory and progressive sessions of mountain boarding at our featured slope. Nestled up in a valley you get scenic views of the local area as you learn about the boards, the safety equipment and how to turn and stop safely.

Mountain boarding is a great activity for developing your balance, co-ordination, core body muscles and confidence as you take on the different slopes. The sessions can be either a half or full day session and can cater for groups of all ages from eight years and above. This can work well as part of an activity day or as a session on its own.

Walking on Water

You go inside an airtight ball, the ball fills with air and you are off for a water walking adventure. A challenging and fun activity which is entertaining for spectators and participants alike.

We run this only in warmer weather. Not a winter activity.

Kayaking and Canoeing

We run kayaking and canoeing on a sheltered, private lake at Secret Valley, slow moving rivers in Somerset or at other venues in the South West. Half day sessions are ideal as an introduction to kayaking but we can run more advanced courses for full or half days. Suitable for all from the age of eight upwards.

All specialist equipment such as Buoyancy aids, helmets, waterproof jackets and booties are supplied, together with fully qualified instruction.

Team Building

Team Building for schools, corporate, businesses in Secret Valley.

Team Building and Team Development courses  can be run as a half day session but to get the best from the activities and from each other it is best to dedicate a day to improve team dynamics. Suitable for Corporate Groups, Schools and College, Hen Parties.

Raft Building, Bridge Building, The Low Ropes Course and the High Ropes Course can all be part of this and there can be other challenges involves. Let us know your requirements and we can provide a programme designed to meet your group’s needs.

In addition, we can also come to you. A Team/Group day or half day on the school field or in the class room. All we need is space. Contact for further details.
