What a brilliant morning on the water. Leigh is an excellent instructor, and the location is stunning. The games to build up our skills were great fun, and we felt that we were in safe hands. He kindly lent us gloves and waterproof trousers alongside the buoyancy aids, and even got in touch ahead of our session to offer us a different slot to avoid bad weather, which was much appreciated! We would completely recommend a kayak tour with Leigh - a highlight of our trip to the Lake District!

This was our 2nd time kayaking with Leigh. We had a great experience both times, Leigh is patient, clear and an excellent instructor. He makes you feel comfortable and confident. Even though we’re both in our early 60’s we like trying out new activities and kayaking is something we hope we’ll continue. The setting at Ullswater is breathtaking and both times October and April we were blessed with dry weather. We had fun trying out the different challenges Leigh set us but mainly we had a lovely day on the water chatting and enjoying the surroundings and the company.

Thanks Clive. Both yourself and Jill have been a pleasure to paddle along with on both occasions. While I appreciate the compliments, I think that the partnership you guys had on the water was the key to your success. Add to that your easy going natures and it was, I agree, simply a lovely day. All the best. Leigh.

We had such an amazing tour of the beautiful Ullswater with Leigh. He was prepared with everything we could need and more including ice packs for water. Amazing company and really fun games. Also very true.. farmers are good paddlers (but even as a weak medical student I still managed and had a lot of fun!). Fun for everyone. Thank you!

Thanks for the review Lauren. Both yourself & Harry are very good paddlers and a great partnership. You were also excellent companions out on the lake for the afternoon. All the best for the future. Leigh.

Leigh you are the best. Thank you so much for the most beautiful morning on our favourite lake. Guys this is a must-do when you visit the lakes! You will have so much fun no matter what the weather. Leigh will look after you and get you ready for your afternoon nap if you are having a break from walking one day. We would 100% book this again- was relaxing, fun and unforgettable. Thank you Leigh, all the best for the new year ahead Hannah and Sam (Sorry for the delay)

Hi Hannah & Sam, Thank you, for both coming along, and for taking the time to write the review. No problem at all with any delay. I really enjoyed your company out on the lake and listening to stories about your gran was a pleasure. Best of luck with all that you do in the future. Leigh
