Lake District summer activity feedback

Lake District summer activity feedback

September already? Well, this summer just flew by! We’ve had a really great time meeting and greeting all this summer’s groups, and judging by the great feedback we have received, we think you all had a great time with us too.

As a small, family run business, it really does mean a lot when we get such lovely feedback. Thank you!

An excellent activity, superb consideration for child with disabilities. A good age-appropriate morning of canoe rafting and activities on Piel Island. Very good changing facilities (green alien pods!)

Thankyou so much for allowing us to transfer our experience to this season after my husband was hurt last year. We loved every second and can’t wait to try your other activities too. Johan was great fun, very informative and very patient. It was the best, most relaxed activity session we’ve had in a long time! Thanks

Your name:  Terry
Activity Date(s):July 2017
Activity(s): Mountain Biking + Archery No in Group: MB(2); A(2)Activity Experience (Pitch, Kit, Content) -5
The mountain biking was ‘brill’ for both our son and grandson (12) who had not done any serious trail riding before – both came back determined to repeat the activity in future.  Our daughter-in-law and younger grandson (9) had great fun with the archery and would want to repeat the experience.
Overall Value for Money -5
The reward received from enabling our family to experience activities that they are not normally exposed to or able to participate in more than compensates for the cost.
And finally, any other comments:  The flexibility of the team to accommodate family requirements that may differ in terms of age, confidence and capability is most valuable and rewarding.
Your name: Malcolm
Activity Date(s): August 2017
Activity(s): Ghyll Scrambling
No in Group: 2; myself and grandson (aged 9)
Meet and Greet 5
The arrangements were well organised and we felt part in the whole group immediately.  The bonding of the group continued throughout the event and the attention to detail help make the experience more rewarding (e.g. changing tents).  
Activity Experience (Pitch, Kit, Content) 5
The group included people from aged 8 to myself aged 78 but this was no hindrance to us all having a wonderful and inclusive time together.  Our grandson William went home enthused and excited by the whole experience and helped our family to gather more lasting memories we can share and recall on future occasions.  Another tick on my ‘bucket list’.  
Overall Value for Money 5
Money well spent!
And finally, any other comments
The warmth of the contact with Emma, Yohan and other staff makes the experience ideal for all members of families and eases any nervousness that people may have in attempting activities beyond their comfort zone.

This day activity was a retirement celebration for me – the first such event that I think you may have had and lived up to all expectations. The weather was superb and we saw Esakdale and the surrounding mountains in all their glory, Great Day and memorable retirement.

Activity Experience (Pitch, Kit, Content)
5- we did the Gorge walk one day and the canoeing adventure another and though different, both were terrific fun and the instructors caught the level and spirit of the children and myself really quick and fully met our expectations.
Overall Value for Money
5 – we did many adventurous activities this holiday – we do them wherever we go on holiday around the world – and this was the best we experienced.  when i asked my children after ten days which day they liked best, first was gorge walk, second was canoing
