I visited Rookin House for a weekend stag do, staying on site in their large barn conversion and enjoying activities such as paintballing, clay pigeon shooting and karting.

If you read no further than this, then the message you should take away is that this place is extremely well set up, the family who run Rookin House clearly work extremely hard to make it a success and the 15 of us on the stag had an absolutely fantastic weekend.

The on-site accommodation is very well set up - ample seating in terms of sofas and dining space, the sleeping accommodation is split into multiple rooms upstairs and although the beds are basic they're v comfortable. You'll need to bring a single duvet cover, pillowcase (and extra pillow if you sleep with two) and undersheet, or let them know you need linen before hand and pay a supplement.

The kitchen is well appointed for cooking and we made brunch and cooked breakfast for 15 people with no trouble. It could perhaps do with some pint glasses though as we were drinking beer!

The pool table is also a nice touch but could be even better if there was a decent cue - if I'd have known I'd have brought my own... A tiny detail though.

The activities we did were very well organised and James who was in charge of them looked after us very well indeed. The paintball arena up in the woods which overlook Rookin House, is very nicely set out - plenty of hiding places and opportunities for ambush and having the safe zone in the middle of the arena makes it interesting for those who are out of the game. I'd recommend you bring some grippy shoes as my shoes were not up to the job - should have taken my hiking boots!

The highlight of the activities for me was the karting, which took place in the barn where the ponies are kept. There's a fair amount of horse droppings on the track and it ain't a Grand Prix circuit, neither are the karts what you might call equally matched or top notch, however none of these things mattered because with the addition of a bit of water to the floor it became a very entertaining drive with plenty of drifting and tail-out cornering. Exactly what we needed to finish off our stay and again James took charge of proceedings and really added to the experience. Good work that man!

Finally if you're after a pub meal and a few pints off site then about one and a half miles away there's a very good pub/hotel where we all met up and enjoyed a Sunday lunch before heading our separate ways.

Well done Rookin House, you really made our stag do!

We were booked at another venue for quad trekking but received phone call on 8th December informing us they had to cancel are booking for the 9th December due to snow I rang rookin house and spoke to Deborah who was most polite and helpful and pulled out all the strings to book us in with the quad trekking at rookin house troutbeck lake district for the 9th December when we arrived we were met by very welcoming staff and the scenery is to die for with the mighty blencathra as a backdrop our instructor for the 1 hour session was James and we must say what a credit he is to rookin house a lovely warm personality great sense of humour and very patient the course is very good indeed showing what quads are able to negotiate if it wasn't for are other venue cancelling we would never have come across this GEM we highly recommend rookin house farm and will most definitely be back Dave, Tracey, and Daniel from Liverpool
