We have just had a brilliant yet challenging afternoon doing the high ropes course. Our ages were from 12 to 50 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it albeit pretty scary at times. Our instructor Vernon was very good, calm with a good sense of humour. Would totally recommend it for all ages.

Black mountain activities were fantastic!! We turned up on a Sunday morning to check, on the off chance, if any activities were running that we could join onto. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We opted for Gorge Walking. We arrived at a beautiful location and the activity really challenged us both with the different elements involved (climbing,... More

Just returned from an amazing day gorge walking with my boyfriend. It was just ourselves and Mick the instructor and it was an fab day!! Mick was very attentive and caring. Always there for us, to help and support us but also to push us out of our comfort zones. I did things I never thought I would do because... More

My friend and I had a half day of archery in some pretty cold, wet and icy conditions. Despite that we had such a great time! Our instructor (not sure on the name, possibly Carl) was wonderful and had a great way of turning a potentially miserable day into a very enjoyable experience. We weren't sure exactly what to expect... More

These guys were great, our instructor (Mick?) was clearly passionate about his job and made the whole day enjoyable and interesting. Clay pigeon shooting was spot on for a stag do; Mick gave good technique tips and made things a bit competitive but kept it light-hearted, and gorge walking was what the outdoors in Wales should be all about. Cheers... More

We had an absolutely great time! It was a group of 3 of us aged 21-25 and had booked in for high ropes and caving. We had a great guide to ourselves all day (thanks luke!).

Been meaning to write this review for a week now, I was so amazed at how good my experience was I have told everyone!!! We were hosted and taken care of by Mick, who was wonderful!
