Excellent afternoon, Ben our instructor was very friendly, patient and also very clear with instructions. Varied the activity depending on each individuals abilities and gave us all confidence. Also took some great photos so we can remember the day.

Great canoeing on the tranquill lake (Derwent Water), well arranged, guided, good activity. It can be more challenging with bigger wind, but we were lucky with sunshine and stillness.

What a great day! Ghyll scrambling in Keswick. Afternoon session lead by John (Woody). Something for everyone. More challenging exercises for the fearless amongst us and encouragement for the less confident. This would not ordinarily be my cup of tea - I don't like swimming...More
