I've always had a fascination with caving but never actually been on any organised caving trips. I'd been to the White Scar Caves in Yorkshire, the Honistor slate mine and Chislehurst caves but nothing ever proper meaty. I'd arranged a nice break in the Peak District and decided that I would contact some proper Caving companies and see what they could offer. Following a recommendation from another caving company (always a great sign), Steve @ Dolomite responded to my email and asked me to give him a call. We chatted about my level of experience (zero) and attitude for adventure (high). I explained the kind of experience that my partner and I were looking for and from this he put together a loose itinerary of what we could see. The day arrived and we were met by Wendy, an incredibly friendly, positive and cheerful instructor who worked with Steve. She ran through where we would be starting and upon arriving there (Bagshaw Cave) went through what we needed to wear (all of which Dolomite provided). Wendy was truly amazing. My GF was a little uncertain about the caving but knew that she wanted to push herself to do it. Wendy was patient and encouraging and supportive. She was happy to stop and reassure my partner whenever she felt uncertain and offered so many snippets of information on the mines/caves that we were in. She identified that I was a bit more confident in that environment and pushed me to try a bit of narrow scrambling which I thoroughly enjoyed. The caving, experience and sights that I saw were fantastic but Wendy truly made the day. She was a pleasure to cave with who made us feel safe and in the hands of a professional at all times. I'm not sure if my GF will do any more caving but if I get the chance to, Dolomite will certainly be at the top of my list. Thank you Steve and Wendy.

I went abseiling and caving today with a group of 7 friends. We had a great time and would highly recommend! One of our friends was a bit afraid of abseiling but Steve was great with him and he ending up having a great time! The caving was excellent, a good mix of challenging and fun, although you need to be prepared to get very wet. The instructors were all excellent. I would note that you need to bring your own car to drive to the caving - we walked and had to go back to our accommodation to get our car.

We absolutely loved our caving experience! Steve was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny and made you feel at ease around the more challenging parts of the route. We did the intermediate course and it was the whole experience! We crawled, climbed, abseiled, ducked and twisted our way through the caves, up and down waterfalls and through some very challenging obstacles! It really was worth the journey we made. I highly recommend this course and indeed this company. Very professional yet personal and you can feel the passion for the outdoors and adventure that Steve has. I can’t wait to book another adventure with Dolomite! Thank you Steve! (: (We went in late October and I was worried it was going to be too cold, but surprisingly it was colder outside than inside!)

A great day out. Wendy took us weaseling in the morning all three kids (3, 6, 8) and me were able to squeeze through the rocks. I've been walking over there before but never realised how much extra fun we could have. In the afternoon we went caving, I was a bit nervous about how the kids would get on but the route was the right balance of adventure with out being too hard. When we got back they were very excited to tell their mum about all their adventures especially the underground climbing, abseiling, and waterfalls. Thanks for a fun day.

Wendy took our group (5 adults of mixed experience) for a day of climbing on Stanage edge, and it’s safe to say we had a great time! Her instructions were super clear and memorable, and she made sure to find something that would challenge each of us. Due to the famous Peak District weather, we started the day with a chilled abseil down the viaduct on Monsal trail to wait for the crag to dry - icing on the cake! Thanks for a great day Wendy. You rock!!! 🪨🧗🏾‍♂️
