We had such a brilliant time - we have never done anything like this before but absolutely loved every minute and would definitely do it again. Vickie made the arrangements so easy and Craig was an excellent guide (and extremely patient!).

You have to do it! The kids (boys 11& 14) loved it and so did we. Craig was a skilled and knowledgable guide, he knows every rock and foot hold. It was a wet day but that didn't matter. Yes the water is very cold...More

We went for the ghyll scrambling and Coniston. I can't rate it highly enough. We went in May and the sun was blazing so a dunk in the fresh stream was brilliant. The challenges are difficult but there is no pressure to push yourself any...More

Had a fantastic morning. Took family of four 2 teenage boys. Craig is very friendly and knowledgeable of the activity. I was a bit worried about doing the ghyll scrabble but it was so much fun and would definitely do it agin.
