Cotswold Life

Far Peak isn’t just a destination; it’s a thriving community woven into the fabric of the Cotswolds. Amidst the rolling hills and picturesque landscapes, residents and visitors alike come together to embrace sport and adventure, forge lasting connections, work alongside businesses that share values and a sense of responsibility and keep their own wellbeing on track.

Established in 2006 by local entrepreneur Chris Wild, Far Peak began its journey as a collection of farm buildings in need of renovation. Chris’s vision for sustainable offices with a light eco footprint was just the start for Far Peak and, realising the beautiful location’s potential to inspire the next generation, he set to work developing an activity centre and campsite in the heart of the Cotswolds. More than a decade later, Far Peak now embraces a huge range of visitors to its many independent businesses from near and far to enjoy the best the Cotswolds community can offer.

At the heart of this vibrant community lies Far Peak Climbing, a haven for climbers of all skill levels. With an incredible variety of routes and expert instruction, the climbing centre serves as a focal point for both seasoned climbers seeking new challenges and newcomers eager to learn the ropes.

Adjacent to the climbing centre stands The Old Smokery. Formerly a traditional smokery, the space now welcomes visitors looking for a place to unwind after a day of adventure. The Old Smokery is a fantastic hub centred around a delicious takeaway café, where visitors can enjoy locally roasted coffee, baked goods, ice creams, soups and snacks.

For those seeking relaxation and rejuvenation, the Scenic Sauna offers a tranquil retreat amidst the natural beauty of the area. Nestled amidst lush greenery, this oasis provides the perfect escape to unwind, recharge, and connect with nature. The facility is host to a series of sessions and workshops including both ice and heat experiences.

Sports enthusiasts find their home at Cotswold Padel Club, the first indoor Padel tennis club in the Cotswolds. What better place to enjoy the world’s fastest growing racket sport with state of the art facilities, regular coaching and club competitions and an open door to visitors and members alike. 

And if you are keen to journey into the surrounding area, Far Peak are delighted to be home to Cotswold Bike Hire. Here you can hire bicycles that are ideally suited to exploring the local countryside. And with a selection of bikes in many sizes you can invite the whole family along on your next two wheeled tour!
