Great afternoon learning to sail with two others on Coniston Water. Good tuition,patience and great fun. The small group meant we could all participate fully and this is an important part in taking your first steps in learning to sail. Not being a great fan of water my confidence was certainly boosted and I look forward to taking mote lessons.

This was a great introduction to sailing - we're total beginners but felt secure and finished the session feeling confident we could go out again knowing the basics. The lesson was on Lake Coniston so stunning views of the surrounding mountains were a bonus.

Me and a group of friends had an excellent weekend here. The canoeing session was brilliant fun, really well run, and Johann was a great guide! We were also very impressed with the location, accommodation and facilities. I would definitely recommend them for a fun, group based weekend, and I will definitely go back if I get the opportunity!

Had a great time and will definitely recommend. Climbing was good but the Gorge Walk / Scrambling and abseiling were excellent. In all events, the guides were very knowledgeable, kept us safe and inspired confidence. Fantastic experience that will ensure I come back to the Lakes (err, Mountains) very soon.

Just finished 3 days of great activities including a climbing day, canoeing and gorge walking. We decided to try an activity holiday as we have 2 teenaged boys who get bored easily and we were not disappointed. Not once did we have any complaints from the boys, all activities were challenging and Tom the instructor was great with them. Everything... More

I was very apprehensive before this trip and particularly so on the day as we'd had torrential rain the night before and the river conditions were 'challenging' to say the least. But we had an absolute ball! Great kit and superb guiding throughout. I felt challenged, but able to trust our guides completely, which let's face it, is what it's... More

We did kayaking, scrambling & abseiling, rock climbing, archery, and the gorge walk. Absolutely loved them all, great way to spend time in this gorgeous part of the world!

Fantastic company, well organised and knowledgeable, Johann was great with the kids (both 12 years old), who were nervous but he earned their trust instantly and they had a brilliant time. Great settings and fun, along with amazing views of the lakes. I would suggest anyone heading to the lakes use these guys for your activities. 2017 is in the... More

The rain came, but that didn't damping our spirit! We had a great time learning the methods of turning the canoe and using this to work our way under some branches! We then made the three canoes into a boat and sailed to the island. Would heartily recommend doing an activity with River Deep mountain high.

We all really enjoyed the Gorge Walking in Tilberthwaite. Well organised and great fun. The lovely weather was a bonus! Perfect for 47 yr old kid with his 13 and 8 yr olds though I do think my 8 year old was pushed to the limit!
