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.

An absolute pleasure to welcome the Darlington BM team here for their Christmas outing. Great fun, good humour, and obviously with being car people you were also interested and aware of how the technology and engineering were working beneath us in the vehicles. Great to hear you'll be back for more at some point, we look forward to it. Cheers, Colin.

A fantastic experience for our 16 year old daughter and 12 year old son at this fantastic off-roading centre overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay with its infinite sea views and vineyards(!).

Neither had ever driven a car before, never mind a 4x4 and there were some nerves before they got behind the wheel of the Land Rover Defender. But Simon put them completely at ease with his clear and humorous explanations and they were soon navigating 26 degree side slopes and thick mud with confidence and huge smiles on their faces.

Truly a memorable experience and throughly recommended.

Thanks so much for your glowing review of our site and the experience. Nerves are absolutely natural, especially if you've never driven before, in fact we'd be a bit worried if a new driver wasn't nervous! Really good to hear that Simon put the drivers at ease and got them straight into the challenging terrain. Congratulations on a great first drive, and hope to see you back for more sometime. Cheers, Colin.

On December 9th 2023 I went with my dad as he booked it for my birthday earlier that year for the junior experience, when we arrived we were greeted by Simon one of the instructors who was great, welcoming and funny. After we talked we got into the 110 defender and he talked me through everything I needed to do and all the safety if things were to go wrong, after this we swapped seats and I was in the drivers side, the time flew so fast although we were there for ages and it was one of the best things I have done as it was very enjoyable and the off roading course was brilliant due to the rainy and boggy weather, this experience my dad had booked me was a amazing and something I would 100% do again.

It was a great day for me as it was my first time driving any car as a 15 year old, I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE, as it was just a fabulous experience for me.

Thanks for such a great and detailed review Benji. First time driving any car, and you do it here, in a Land Rover, on SERIOUS off road terrain. Well done! I'm really pleased you enjoyed it, the rain and wet ground conditions definitely add to the challenge, so you couldn't have had more of an "in at the deep end" experience. Hope to see you back again for more driving in the future. Cheers, Colin.

Thanks for the 5 star review Andy, very much appreciated. Really glad to hear you enjoyed the combination of the time at the centre and the time on the trails, it's a really comprehensive way to test yourself and the vehicle. Thanks for your visit, and hope to see you again in the future. Cheers, Colin.

We had a great half day driving experience. Colin's communication was great in the lead up to the day, the directions to the site included in the email really helpful and then Simon our instructor was just great - really knew his stuff and very patient. The site itself can't be beaten, with all kinds of terrain all overlooking Robin Hoods Bay. We did it on our wedding anniversary. It might not sound the most romantic of things to do but we both had a great time, with 3hrs more than enough for us both to have a go. Would highly recommend

I had a fantastic half day, off road experience with Colin, in a Landrover Defender, automatic, with all the latest technology.

Colin took time to explain all the controls and different pieces of tech, which was great.

The off road course was varied with many different sections to try out and test yourself, both from a driving point of view and mentally ie what should you do in this situation?

Each section required a different technique and Colin took time to talk through all the options.

I would thoroughly recommend; it was a super, fun experience.

You make a great point that it's not just the physical aspect of driving that's tested here, but also your thinking and decision making. You do go away quite tired often after a few hours off roading! I'm really pleased you had such a good time, and thanks so much for your kind comments. Cheers, Colin.

All the important words in your review there Rachel, thanks so much. Really pleased that Simon made your day so good, and that you took away some new knowledge and enthusiasm for your own vehicle (which looks great in your uploaded photos by the way!). Hope to see you back soon. Cheers, Colin.

The directions given to us by North Yorkshire off road centre were excellent. Simon our instructor met us in the car park and showed us to the land rover and gave us a full explanation and a demonstration of how things worked before letting me take over and on each section of the course , Simon set challenges and advised on the best way to tackle them
I learned a lot from Simon, he made the day a really enjoyable time and I would highly recommend this experience

Thanks for your very kind words about the day you had with Simon at the Off Road Centre. Great that you had an enjoyable time whilst also learning a lot, that's always the combination we're going for. Thanks also for posting your photos, which give a great idea of what to expect for other potential customers. Cheers, Colin.

Apologies for the delayed response to your review Jordan. Always good when a review starts with a word like "Amazing!". I'm really pleased you enjoyed your day here with Simon. The day is all about FUN as you said, but if you can learn a bit about how to get the maximum from the car and the session, then the fun keeps ramping up! Really pleased to hear you'll be back again for some more. Hope to see you then. Cheers, Colin.

We had an absolute blast at the off road center. We took our own 110 defender and used one of them.
Plenty of challenging tracks at the center, and professional instruction. They really take their time to explain what these cars can do and go over the do’s and dont’s of off road driving.
The kids loved the fact that they were able to drive themselves.

Did you know you can also book an off road tour with them?

Apologies for the delayed response to your review Josine. Great fun with you and the family during your visit. It was great to combine the use of your own car and ours at the Off Road Centre, and to get your kids driving too so they could really feel part of the family 4x4 adventure. Thanks for travelling such a HUGE distance to visit us, and hope to see you again on more adventures in the future. Cheers, Colin.
