Exciting News For 2014



The New Year has brought a few changes at Newlands Adventure Centre with the current management team finalising a buyout of the company. Company Manager Rik Beament and his wife Debbie (who manages Keswick Climbing Wall) along with Activity Manager Iain Brooks and his wife Gayle, have bought the company and plan to carry on expanding and developing the business. Rik Beament says: “yself, Debbie and Iain have work for the company for a total of 55 years between us and when we were approached about buying the business it was an opportunity not to be missed. 

Newlands has a great reputation and a strong booking profile, so we didn’t need to be asked twice and finalised the deal on Christmas Eve. We are looking forward to taking the business forward with new ideas and opportunities and plan to carry on providing quality outdoor activities both at Newlands as well as at our other site at Keswick Climbing Wall and already have some new activities planned for the coming season”. Newlands Adventure Centre is a 130 bed residential outdoor activity centre that also offers activities for non residents. In 2008, the company also purchased and relocated Keswick Climbing Wall and now offers over 12 different outdoor and indoor activities to all ages. It is the largest provider of activities in the Keswick area and employs up to 25 people.
