I just finished a day with Matt in the Lakes on a one day navigation course. It was an excellent day all round. I am very unfit and a complete novice and Matt made the day fun, informative and highly enjoyable. Matt really knows his stuff and is a great guy to spend time with on the hills. I felt I was in safe hands and he went at a pace to suit me. The route he chose gave us spectacular views around the Lake District and the experience has definitely whetted my appetite for more. If you want to get out onto our spectacular scenery and enjoy the countryside then booking one of Lakeland Guides skills courses or going on one of their guided walks is a great way to do it. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Many thanks Matt

I had two very pleasant and informative days with Matt when I attended a navigation course. The course was suitable for anyone who knew nothing or very little about navigation (like I did) and also for anyone that needed their skills updating or refreshing. I found Matt to be an excellent instructor and through his skills, knowledge, enthusiasm and patience taught me how to read/use a map and compass, which has now given me the confidence to get my boots on and enjoy walking on the fells."

“I’ve enjoyed many great days out on the fells in the company of Matt and he is always a pleasure to walk with. Whether guiding a group of people or an individual Matt will always take the time to chat with everyone, which I feel is important and adds to the experience. Epic days, many thanks”

Matt helped us climb Scafell Pike in the dark as part of our Three Peaks attempt. He was a fantastic guide and managed to get our group of 11 (varying abiities) up and down in one piece despite the horrific wet and windy weather. I cannot recommend Lakeland Mountain Guides enough - definitely consider using them as Scafell Pike is hard to navigate at the top! Prices were also very competitive and well worth it. Thank you matt!
