Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fabulous day with Sam working on nav skills. A lovely guy, easy to get on with, Sam has a great & structured approach to your learning, he's very clear & easy to understand. I had a 1:1 & Sam tailored the day to get the best out of it for what I wanted, so despite the slightly challenging weather, I had a great day & learnt a lot.....such a great day I've booked him again for a scrambling day.

Sam gave us a brilliant two days of instruction on the Rock Skills Intermediate course. All his instruction was very clear with the opportunity to ask lots of questions and he provided a nice mix of hands-on experience but also opportunities to practice our skills. He also gave us some great coaching tips to improve our climbing both indoors and outdoors. Throughout the whole course, I felt safe and at ease. I would highly recommend this course and Lake District Mountaineering.

Sam was an excellent instructor and the beginner course was an excellent instruction to outdoor climbing for our first time. Highly recommend if you're even a little interested!

Have no climbing experience, so tried this beginner course. Was very impressed with the organisation and communications before the event. Naturally this continued from the time we met until departure at 4pm. The day passed really quickly and was great fun. Sam has an easy to understand teaching method, offering more than one method for each discipline. Sam is clearly experienced and knowledgable but also easy to understand and approach. Left feeling well grounded in all aspects of rock climbing.
Will be back for more (Navigation) training and to enjoy the amazing surroundings.

Just completed a 4 day Winter Skills course in the Cairngorms and we had a great time! We learnt how to use crampons/ ice axe, how to navigate in a blizzard, how to plan a route to avoid avalanches, we built snow shelters and practiced descending from a snow bollard. We had two guides during the week- both James and Alex were really friendly and excellent teachers. I learnt lots of challenging new skills but felt safe throughout the week. I now feel a lot more confident to go out and enjoy the winter mountains and I can’t wait to get my crampons on again!

Amazing experience! Sam was a great instructor, very informative and his jokes were terrible 😂 would more than recommend. I now feel confident enough to tackle some winter walking myself. Will definitely be booking on some more technical courses in the future

Had a super day with Sam. As a solo traveler being with someone who is personable and knowledgeable is really important, Sam was both of those things and so much more. He gave me the confidence to tackle things that I know would’ve beaten me if I was on my own & I’ve learnt techniques that l’ll be using in future. I’ll definitely be booking with Sam again.

In 2023 I booked two separate trips to the Lake District for some rock climbing, and I chose Sam/Lake District Mountaineering, who came highly recommended, to do some multi-pitch climbing and to bag the classic Napes Needle. A lot of great walking/approaches & walk outs, with amazing views and Sam’s knowledge all round made it a fabulous couple of days for me and my hubs.

More recently I met up with Sam again, this time one to one, for a couple of days climbing and again he was the ultimate professional. He took the time to get to know my objectives and tailored the climbing accordingly. All in all I’ve had four days of climbing with Sam and will definitely climb with him again. I highly recommend Sam/Lake District Mountaineering. A great professional leader/company.

This is the second course that I have booked with Lake District Mountaineering and I have already booked the next. The reason that I keep returning is finding a great instructor in Sam. Each time I have taken a lot from the day and I think this is down to the knowledge being shared in an easily understandable and practical way.
