this was a birthday treat for me that i had not yet booked so I decided to book for me and my two teens to go abseiling this Easter. Johann- was in charge of taking us abseiling near Coniston. He was extremely good at making everyone feel welcome, comfortable and safe. He dealt with my daughter's fears very subtly and... More

We went as a family (children 13 and 11) for two activities with RDMH. Both gorge-walking and canoeing were exceptionally well-organised and a fantastic way to make the most of just a few days in the beautiful Lake District. It was wonderful to be on the lake at Coniston with almost no one around just a few days after Easter.

We've just spent 3 days with RDMH. One 55 year old and three boys between 14-12, three of us being city based and pretty unfamiliar with the outdoor activities. Johan managed our mixed ability group very well and was supportive and encouraging where necessary, Gorge walking was cold but exhilerating, The scrambling and abseiling took us outside our comfort zone...

For my sister's hen weekend 10 of us stayed at the Lowick School Bunkhouse and went gorge walking with RDMH. It was a fantastic experience, and enjoyable even for a nervous novice. Johan and Bob were great when I was finding the gorge challenging, and I'm certain I wouldn't have been able to climb the waterfall without their calm reassurance.... More

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
