Please note that, for visitors requiring activities, we normally work with a minimum group size of 8.

I've been instructing for 5 years and whilst I am qualified to run many different activities, I'm more at home in the mountains.
I love the challenges that you receive from outdoor sports and the freedom to go to really exciting places. It's great to see young people (and old too!) overcoming fears, working together and having a great time. To relax there is nothing better than rock climbing!
Marian has been with Kepplewray for 8 years and leads our team of fabulous cooks. Her steak pie has guests queuing up for seconds (and thirds!) and is a real treat. In addition to looking after the culinary requirements of Kepplewray's guests, Marian also takes the lead on delivering lunches to the school next door.
Steve is another key member of the team at the Kepplewray Centre and he looks after the building, the grounds and the vehicles. Steve has held several quite different roles during his working life so far – including the manufacture of wheel chairs, serving his time on building sites (principally as a joiner), being the chef at a local pub in Broughton and undertaking a number of building and decorating jobs. He is happily settled in Broughton with his wife and two sons.
