Family Groups

Families come to Kepplewray for many different reasons:

• as a single family – or several close families combined – to be able to undertake some outdoor activities together
• a gathering of the wider family group – some or all of whom could also do activities
• for a celebration with family and friends of an important milestone or achievement

Whatever the reason, Kepplewray is a fantastic homely venue and is a very family orientated building offering a "home cooked" food - which can be tailored to your specific requirements.

The key is that, whatever the reason for the get together, you all have fun – and we will play our part in trying to ensure that.

A short break can leave parents feeling relaxed, as the activity instructors lead the family through a range of exhilarating outdoor activities which can be tailored for your family such that they are suitable for as many generations that wish to take part. We can cater for all, from the timid to the most adventurous, and can guide you on land, water or a rock face.

At the other end of the spectrum, you may just want to spend time sitting in one of our comfortable lounges – perhaps having lit the open fire – catching up, chatting with each other over a cup of tea – or maybe reminiscing about times gone by.

If it is a celebratory meal and/or an evening party with some music for you all to enjoy that is required – you can achieve any of this at Kepplewray.
