I just wanted to say thank you for a lovely holiday and keep on what you are doing as I feel you have the basis of a brilliant personalised service and I would not hesitate in using you again or telling my friends and colleagues about your service.

Amazing private photography tour of The Lakes. Chris was extremely professional and gave me plenty of time. Bespoke experience is highly recommended, especially if you are on a short visit and want make the most of your time.

We had such a fantastic day, we got exactly what we wanted from our activity day! Chris was a great instructor, so positive and enthusiastic, it was brilliant to have one to one tuition.

A fantastic day spent in the outdoors with lovely company and loads of guidance from Chris and Lynn. Canoeing, making the pancakes, learning to gather kindling and light a fire made the day most enjoyable.
