“Fun-filled, friendly, Lake banter!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

If you want to have a great day of activities in the Lakes then contact Emma or Beth at RDMH and get booked up!

I was part of a team of 6 that came down from Scotland looking for a well-organised, fun day of activities for a weekend away. RDMH did not disappoint.

Everything is exceptionally organised, our insstructors (Alex and Will) were informative, great lads. We did canoe-sailing and mountain biking. There's an activity for everyone.

Not too steep on pricing (bearing in mind if you do 2 activities in the day then it's effectively a whole day of action).

Would highly recommend!

“Cracking Adventure Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

The River Deep, Mountain High team helped us to achieve everything we wanted from our inaugural training weekend. Highlights were their organisation, enthusiasm and general all-round friendliness, even to novices like me. We were the first to stay in their newly converted bunkhouse, and it was a great base for the weekend. Very well set up kitchen, and communal areas. Having been converted from a school house, some of the loos still had kiddles toilets and were a bit of a challenge :-). The team and the bunkhouse are definitely recommended by us.

Hi Trish,

Thank you for your review. Have you noticed the reference to your special 5am gorge walk below?
We're really glad your tailored program hit the spot and that the bunkhouse worked well. Always a nervous moment when something you've been planning and creating for a while is used for the first time! The little toilets will be swapped for full size ones soon although they are good for thigh strength development hehe ;-)

Thanks for being great first guests

Emma

“Gorge scrambling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

For our annual extended-family trip to the Lakes we were looking for something different to do, and on the recommendation of our 16 year old daughter I booked a morning's gorge scrambling. I have to admit I hadn't given much thought to the temperature of the water in early April....We went to Tilberthwaite and our guide was Will. It turned out this was the second time he'd done the gorge that morning - the first having been at 5am, a truly mad idea. Despite this, from the outset, he was calm and patient with our group of mixed ages, abilities and sizes and expertly guided us up first the 'easy' part of the stream and then the harder part involving a bit of swimming and climbing using a rope. We were offered the opportunity to fall backwards into pools of water, crawl through tight spaces and jump into deep pools, but it was clear at every stage that these were optional activities - and I have to admit not partaking in every opportunity to get my head wet and cold. A real highlight was drinking hot chocolate, warming our numb fingers having climbed up a waterfall. You get wet(!), cold (at least in early April), bruised and aching limbs, but also brilliant fun and a real sense of achievement along with the opportunity to see places that are hidden from the usual tourist trails. Would definitely do it again.
