About Castleberg Outdoors

Specialist Independent Outdoor Retailer

Castleberg Outdoors is a specialist independent outdoor retailer first established in 1987. Aside from some of the best prices you'll find, we are hugely focused on customer service. Expert advice, delivering on time, answering emails or calls - it's important to us to get it right and make you delighted - it means (we hope) you'll come back again.

Why are we different? How do we do things? We believe our strength is in our staff, our shop and what we sell. Our staff because everyone who works for us has a passion for the outdoors, knows the gear inside out and is committed to doing their best for customers. Our shop because it means we talk to customers face to face every day, we learn about what you need and how our gear performs for you. What we sell because we have an unrivalled range in our core brands and what we stock is technical, high performance gear - our hope is that you'll be delighted with what you buy, it'll perform brilliantly and give years of service.

The reason we are here is to do the right thing. Whether in store or online, we operate on a simple principle - 'to treat customers how we'd like to be treated ourselves'. It works (just check out our trustpilot feedback) - we've been voted as one of the top independent outdoor retailers in the UK several times by a TGO magazine panel and their readers.

Please order with confidence - we promise not to disappoint.


Who We Are
