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.

Two days learning new and refreshing (very) old skills with Emma and Ben and a great group of other students.

Emma has a friendly, personable but professional and informative style that puts you at ease. I was initially anxious but this was dispelled in Emma’s teaching approach and engagement.

We had all weathers on the course but the learning was great whether rain or shine. A cliche but I will definitely be doing more courses with this great company.

Just what I needed to give me the knowledge and skills to stop relying on apps and focus on map and compass. This is Navigation training par excellence, I really don't think you will find better in the UK.

Day 1 of the course was a bit heavy on theory, I felt the principles could have been spread across the two days better, but that is my only constructive feedback to improve.

We were really fortunate to have two amazingly knowledgeable trainers in Emma and Ben. We all got on incredibly well and this made for a really enjoyable course overall.

I have got some really useful takeaways and things to work on.

I will be taking further courses in the future to upgrade and refresh my knowledge and skills. I hope this will be with Emma and Ben if the dates available match my availability.

I contacted Emma towards the end of 2023 when I was looking for a Trainer to help me prepare for my Hill and Moorland Leader assessment. I wanted someone to give me a critical view and highlight key areas for development. Emma was a great listener and had a real intuitive feel for where I was in my development; this then helped me build a clear plan going forward.

Our first session included navigation in open countryside and night navigation – Emma is so knowledgeable, and her teaching style is very clear.

As assessment drew near, I booked a whole day with Emma on a 1-2-1 basis – she was excellent and shaped a day to my specific requirements which included a focus on flora/fauna as well as some core navigation strategies and great tips to help navigate the challenging terrain high up on Kinder – it was such an excellent day and really put me in the best place possible for my assessment.

Emma is a real professional. Her communication style is clear and personable. If you are preparing for your HML or ML I would strongly recommend spending time with her – I’m so glad that I did!

I’ve now passed my HML assessment and grateful to Emma for the part she played along the way.

Really enjoyable day learning the basics of navigation with Emma. Learnt a huge amount and felt comfortable to ask lots of questions and pause and sense check anything that I did not understand. Did a 1-1 session so lots of opportunity to chat about a range of things not just navigation! Emma is a great teacher and a lovely person and will be booking further courses as my learning develops.

I had a 1:1 night navigation session with Emma. It was among the best training I’ve had - I’m getting on a bit so I’ve had a lot. There were several emails back and forth to understand exactly what I wanted to get from the session, and during the session Emma was very good at checking what I already knew and figuring out where my knowledge and skill gaps were. She is a very clear communicator and her jargon-free way of teaching and explaining things helped me pick up new concepts up more quickly. Apart from being a really good instructor Emma is also very personable and was easy company. I’m considering more training and will definitely go back to Emma for this. I learned far more than I had expected and I not only feel much more confident about navigating and finding my way in the dark but I now seem to have a sense of empowerment that wasn't there before.

The a night nav session I did with Emma the week before my HML assessment really made a difference. Her tips on pacing and using your arm to judge contours and the lay of the land in poor visibility proved invaluable the following weekend on a dark, foggy, drizzly, Alport Moor.

My partner and I did the Bronze course in October.

Excellent planning, excellent instruction, well thought out layering of concepts and increase of complexity, good balance of individual help and group teaching and (most importantly) time, space and a good environment to practice, get things wrong and then improve.

I noticed an improvement from day 1 to 2.

I will definitely be doing the Silver course with Emma, once I get a few more walks under my belt.

My sister and I completed the beginners navigation course. Emma actively listened to our needs and planned the course around our physical abilities and experience. She delivered concise information and answered our numerous questions. She gave feedback in a positive, sensitive manner and with a great sense of humour. We are definitely going to book another installment.

Fantastic fun on the bronze 2 day course. I thought I was going to be with a bunch of teenagers doing D of E but it was a small group of 4 mixed ladies and men and we had a blast!
Emma was very down to earth, friendly and polite. She allowed us space to make our own decisions and make some mistakes and reeled us back in when needed.
Definitely good value and will be back for the silver!

I found Emma via a simple google search as I was keen to get back into walking off the beaten track and competent with map & compass. Emma is an authority on all things navigation and is patient, professional and explains the various topics clear concise and in a logical manner. Had some great fun too over the 2 days and a fellow cricket fan which can only be a bonus :)

I got so much from the 2 days, and will be booking the silver NNAS course in the new year, once i have had chance to do a spot of practice.

If youre looking to do a navigation course, I dont think you'll find a better guide than Emma and you'll have a blast in the process.

Cheers Emma - see you soon.
