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.

INCREDIBLE! If you're thinking about booking a BMA stay, do it! I booked a weekend stay at the end of Sept/Oct 2023 for a hen party with 13 people and it surpassed all expectations.

We got a bargin deal for three bell tents, plus a larger bell tent which acted as the living space, situated next to a gorgeous lake. There were cute wooden toilets (like festival toilets), and a marquee that acted as a kitchen which was constantly stocked with food throughout our stay.

I didn't know that the weekend was heavily catered for, you do not need to bring your own food. You're welcomed with a gorgeous BBQ, Michelin Star worthy and a big bucket of beer and cider.. 🏾 Thank you Anton! The breakfast was amazing too, continental bits, followed by a big old butty. Then we had a lovely pack up for lunch post morning activities! We went out to the local town for our tea, but we didn't eat much as we were stuffed from earlier.

The activities were so much fun! Canoeing was brilliant, Roberto (I've defo got his name wrong) and Baby Face made it so much fun with the racing games. White Water Rafting was the best and I'd highly recommend this. Thanks Nikki for keeping us safe and proving the fun! Also, thanks Steve for transporting us to and from the activity.

Finally, thank you Sarah for dealing with 13 very demanding hens. You've made what could have been incredibly stressful, considerably less stressful.

Also, there is a friendly, cute black and white cat that came to visit us on Fri and Sat night. We loved this!

Very very highly recommend BMA, its is such good value and so much fun. Thank you!

I recently attended a Stag Do arranged by Hugh and Jason at Bearded Man Adventures, and had an amazing time. It was a group of 12 and it was the first time we’d all got to tether since COVID so it’s fair to say we were very excited, and the BMA team absolutely delivered. The booking process was easy and flexible (loads of activities to chose from, and we even had to change last minute due to weather which Hugh made sure wasn’t an issue). We stayed at the site in Llangollen and the space was perfect, portable toilets provided and the site was right next to a stream perfect for a ‘wash’ in the morning, there was also a large canopy set up with chairs and a fire underneath in case it rained (which it did).

Activity wise we had the white water rafting in the morning which was brilliant to help clear everyone’s hangover, it was challenging enough to add a bit of risk to the activity, but not so dangerous that it’s anything to worry about (our instructors were Bethan and Jack and they both played a massive part in making sure we had a great time). In the afternoon we went for the Canoeing over the aqueduct which was a lot more tame, but still great fun, and a really good way to end the day before we hit some local pubs in Llangollen for a few beers.

Food provided was amazing, and it’s fair to say they cater for ‘man size’ portions, so if you chose to go for the catered options you won’t be disappointed and you certainly won’t go hungry! (Tom was our chef, the food he prepared was great and he joined in on the laughs and jokes whilst he was on site cooking for us).

Hugh and Jason were great at toeing the line between making sure we were safe, but we’re understanding that it’s 12 lads on a stag do. I would 100% recommend BMA, and me and my friends will definitely be going away with them again in the future.

Thanks for a weekend the stag certainly won’t forget!

On Sunday myself, partner and friends had an absolutely brilliant time tubing with the bearded men as a bit of fun for my birthday . The afternoon was great fun and Bethan and the other instructor (sorry I’ve forgotten your name, oops) we’re so helpful, friendly and fun. We felt safe and comfortable at all times and would recommend them and tubing to anyone . We are all in our fifties and all yes your arms do get a bit of a work out but we all found it to be fun. The scenery is also beautiful and helps make the experience 10/10. Last year we did whitewater rafting with the bearded men and we’ll certainly book our next adventure with them in a heart beat . Thanks guys

Had booked the Canyoning experience but heavy rain the night before made the activity too dangerous. I was immediately offered a white water rafting experience which had been on my list to do so I jumped at the chance.

Travelled back to Llangollen and joined other people to be a paddler in one of four rafts. The river was bouncing! Very high and very fast. With "handsome Rob" as our very capable (and authorative) guide, we zoomed down the river in what seemed like no time, tackling a number of moderately complex rapids, including the cauldron as the finale.

All in all, a great experience put on by a very competent and safety conscious company. Hope to return soon with others for a go at the Canyoning!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review! Super stoked you enjoyed rafting with Rob as an alternative to canyoning! Thank you for your understanding in Pete's call to not go into the Canyon on that day! Thanks again and super chuffed you still had a great time!

Work event where 20+ of us attended archery/axe throwing in the morning and white water rafting in the afternoon. All were great fun and would recommend 😊

Staff went out of their way to cater for a large group so it didn't affect the activities which was appreciated.

Shout out to Ali, 'little' Hughie & Nick who were great hosts for the events attended. Total enthusiasm, good laugh and made us feel completely safe throughout all activities.

Note that the facilities on site are really minimal so its advised to go to the town nearby (20 min walk) around activities. It's absolutely stunning, many eateries and great views if not attending but wish to watch people you know raft through the last stretch of river, so the walk there is worth it.

Your work event sounds like a true saga of excitement! From archery and axe throwing in the morning to white water rafting in the afternoon, you truly conquered the day with gusto. The shout-out to Ali, 'little' Hughie & Nick as your stellar hosts speaks volumes—total enthusiasm, good laughs, and unwavering safety ensured "maximum fun, minimum hassle" throughout. Kudos to the staff for going above and beyond to accommodate your large group, ensuring your adventure flowed smoothly. As you've discovered, the nearby town offers a charming respite with eateries and stunning views—a perfect spot to catch your colleagues rafting through the final stretch. Your recommendation echoes loud and clear: this is a must-visit for all seeking unforgettable adventures!

We loved our rafting experience! The team were so friendly, welcoming and reassuring, not to mention the fun they brought in the river. Mike, Joe, Dan and the team were so energetic from start to finish and despite no doubt doing this trip everyday they made it feel special and unique. Little extra helping hands - from recommending lunch spots to spinning our own wetsuits dry - made this a 5 * experience. Would definitely use them again and recommend others to do so too. Thanks very much for a great morning!

We had a great time with this company. We had a problem with one of the boats getting punctured by the rocks. This was dealt with really well with some impromptu swimming in the rapids being arranged to keep us occupied while a new boat was brought over. We all felt this was so good that it should’ve added to the itinerary permanently.

Hendo party of 8 and bearded men helped arrange everything, made it as stress free as possible.

We did river tubing and axe throwing that was great fun for all ages and bravery levels and everyone ended up taking part which was a bonus as a few were a little scared, the guides made us feel super safe and we had great fun!

Helped us sort a pub dinner and a spa afternoon which was just what was needed after a dip in the river Dee.

They also sorted the tents, food and booze… we were worried there might not be enough but the food was great and plenty to go around, and even chairs.
We came fully prepared for a camping weekend and we didn’t have to unpack the car at all.

Can’t put into words, they really went above and beyond. And I suspect we might arrange a few more do’s there in the future for the next victims.

Fantastic day with Hugh doing canoying, came all the way out for just two off us which we really appreciate! The day was so fun, full off adrenaline and was well organised, we did so much all in one activity. Hugh is a great instructor taking care in everything we did, made sure we was comfortable and safe to have the best time we could. Highly recommend using BMA, made our time here one to remember! Thank you Hugh

Had a brilliant morning canoeing over the aqueduct with Ali. Super friendly and knowledgeable which really put us at ease. We had a great laugh along the way and would 100% recommend booking a tour with these guys. We can’t wait to come back in summer for another adventure!

Thanks a paddle-full for the awesome review! Ali's our aqueduct ace, making "Maximum Fun, Minimum Hassle" a breeze! Knowledgeable, friendly, and ready to paddle, Ali's the captain of good times on the water. Glad we could kayak and crack jokes together—next stop, summer adventures! Can't wait to see you back for more laughs and river antics!
