We were staying at Park Foot Camping site for two weeks and walked along the lake to Pooley Bridge and came across a black small garage down the side road with a blackboard showing Adventure Today and times somebody would be about.
Came back the next day and Francis was sitting there and told us all about his company and came over very friendly and informative. So we booked up a water climbing day out called Ghyll scrambling for my son and mum.
We followed Francis is his little red car along the country lanes to the site and then the wetsuits were put on. He was always very helpful and really new his subject with one to one supervision. A great day was had with him and my son learned a lot about the power of water and to respect waterfalls trying to cling on and get past them.
In fact we were so happy with Adventure Today we went back again and booked up a climbing lesson and Francis this time took us along a pathway up the side of a Youth Hostel and across an old slate mine to a rock face.
My son had a great time abseiling the rock face again with one to one tuition from Francis.
The next week we booked up for Ghyll Scrambling again and thoroughly enjoyed wading up the streams and negotiating the waterfalls after following Francis for some 18 miles along the narrow lanes above Lake Ullswater.
The only problem we had was our son was only 14 years of age and a parent has to be present at all times so we could not drop him off and drive over to a NT for the day. There are other Adventure trips around but they tend to have 10-12 people in the group and you will not get the one to one that Francis can provide and you will need your own transport to get to the parking sites. Also his colleague came one day and took many photos of the activity and they took the trouble to put them on WeTransfer.com so we could download the full size photos from them. Unfortunately I think he goes back to university come the end of September and will not be around during autumn?
So three separate days out with Adventure Today and everybody had a great time with this company. My son Alex wants to go back for more.
