4×4 Off Roading
At Coniston 4×4, your guests will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of driving off-road, whether it’s on our challenging off-road course, or in one of our popular teambuilding events.

Off-Road Driving in 4x4s
Give your guests the challenge of handling a 4×4 on our famous off-road course, testing their coordination and communication skills as they navigate obstacles and changing terrain, all under the expert guidance of one of our qualified instructors.

Blindfold Driving in All-Terrain Vehicles
You’ll soon find out as exactly how much trust your guests have in each other, as they take turns to be blindfolded and guided through an off-road obstacle course by their colleagues! Great for team-building and developing communication skills, this timed event is always cause for a laugh or two.

Orienteering Challenge across the Coniston Estate
Coniston 4×4’s Orienteering Challenge takes full advantage of the 1400-acre Estate. Groups are divided into teams, handed a map and some clues, and are pitted against one another in a race against time.

Falconry Centre
The Coniston Hotel also has one of the finest falconry centres in the north of England. It features an amazing array of eagles, owls, hawks and falcons – the newest arrival is Splash, a stunning white-tailed sea eagle. You can get up close and personal with the birds, learning about their amazing abilities from the friendly and knowledgeable Falconers, while you feel the exhilaration of this hands-on experience and fly these magnificent birds.

Clay Pigeon Shooting
The Coniston Shooting Ground is one of the best in the country, has been awarded Premier Plus Ground status from The Clay Pigeon Shooting Association, and is the UK’s No.1 ground as voted by the Shooting Industry Awards 2016.

The magnificent wooden Canadian lodge offers a place to warm up pre-shoot with our qualified instructors who will guide you to the perfect shot. The centrepiece wood burner sets the scene for relaxing and socialising after your shoot out competition, offering a relaxing environment to reminisce the day.

Archery & Air Rifles
If you’re looking for the perfect way to help improve accuracy on the range and bring out a competitive nature, why not try your hand at archery or air rife shooting? Experienced instructors are on hand to oversee all sessions and provide useful coaching tips and techniques to everyone.

Water Sports
If water is your sport then our onsite 24-acre lake boasts raft building and dragon boat racing for the most unique team event, a fantastic alternative, whatever the weather!

Something Different
Looking for something else? Why not explore The Coniston Estate on a Segway for the ultimate fun factor! For the adrenaline seeker, our rage buggies and quad bikes are sure to set the competition going in full force with a race against time!
