This is the 2nd time we have booked a trip with Leigh & Patrizia and this trip was just as good as the 1st, we had a mixed days weather but the views certainly made up for it with calm waters to the end of the day. The home made Italian food was amazing & the company is fantastic. Both... More

Thank you both for coming back again. If you do decide to move up here I think the Lakes community will benefit as much as you will. Great company. See you again. Leigh More

I booked a half day kayaking at short notice whilst on holiday. Patrizia got back to my initial email enquiry really quickly and I was lucky enough to secure a half day guided tour on Ullswater. I'd only kayaking once before and any worrys I had about being back on the water were soon overcome as Leigh and Patrizia were... More

Thanks very much for the review Debbie. Great trip, with a definite highlight being the sight of the deer first at the side of the river, then skipping across the shallows. Good luck with your plan to move up here. It's worth it. More

For Christmas my family booked me on a half day canoeing adventure on Ullswater. I had a terrific day from start to finish. I was alone with Leigh for the day and did around 6 miles of canoeing and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. IF you are planning anything like this then Tall Bloke adventures is HIGHLY recommended

I booked a day kayaking with my daughter (11 years old) on lake Windermere. One of the best day's out on the lake and very peaceful. Leigh is a great guy and makes it a very enjoyable day. Windermere is one of the busier lakes in the summer but we only had a few boats go past. I certainly recommend... More

Great finish to our holiday with a picnic and paddle with Leigh and Patrizia and fellow guests Kevin and Andrea. Whilst our hosts definitely lay on 5 star fun, their control of the weather was somewhat less successful and our picnic was under the trees with food protected from the torrential rain by umbrellas! Have not kayaked for several years... More

Thanks very much Phil. When the weather is wet, or very, very wet - as you and Sarah witnessed - it would be very easy to find, and magnify, the smallest fault in an operation. You didn't do that, you made the most of the day. For that thank you. More

Leigh was great at explaining everything and provided a full day of entertainment. Everything was well thought out and he was keen to know how they could improve. We couldn't think of anything! The whole day was tailored to us, relaxed and fun. The (optional) cliff jump at the end was a great way to cool of after such a... More

We booked a paddle and a picnic on Ullswater and had a brilliant time. We wanted a day that would work for both of us as my boyfriend had a little more experience than me. Leigh tailored it to us brilliantly and was a fantastic guide. We were definitely setting trends with our umbrella sails! They were great fun and... More

We booked the 'paddle and a picnic' full day of kayaking. Had a fantastic time and Leigh could not have been more friendly, patient or helpful. We've been thinking of getting into kayaking and this was a perfect taster, Leigh tailored the day to exactly what we wanted and his enthusiasm was infectious. The food was amazing (particularly the guacamole)... More
