We booked three activities with Mobile Adventure and they were all superb. Communication with John (Woody) was clear and timely from the start and he was really flexible and accommodating. Above all, it was great to spend time with people who clearly love what they do and learning from their expertise whilst having fun. I would strongly recommend booking in advance.

First activity for us was ghyll scrambling - a holiday highlight for parents and children aged 12, 15, 17 - our instructor John (not Woody!) made the whole experience great fun from the start. The scramble down the stunning Stonycroft Ghyll was superb fun, with lots of slides and jumps into the water. Nobody was rushed and there was a real sense of achievement on a couple of the more challenging bits. The setting itself is worth it just to see the views from a completely different angle! John's sense of humour, storytelling and the way he treated everyone in the group (11 in total) as individuals made the morning a highlight for all.

Second activity was a morning of paddleboarding for the girls and kayaking for us on the beautiful Derwentwater. John (Woody) 'read' our family well, pushing the girls to try new challenges and letting us enjoy the views! Equipment was all high quality and we learned new skills along the way.

Finally, the two eldest joined John (Woody) and a small group to do the Via Ferrata Extreme at Honister slate mine. They really enjoyed the physical and mental challenge and also got loads of information about the history of the mine at the same time. Again, John was brilliant with the needs of the group.

I booked with Mobile Adventure based on the reviews I had read - and our experiences exceeded expectations. Thank you!

This was awesome! Enjoyed every minute of it! Our instructor Ross made us feel comfortable with every obstacle and gave us tips how to tackle them. There was some sliding, jumping down small waterfalls, diving, so the 2-3h were fully packed. It would have been nicer having an option to choose the group size (and pay accordingly) as it felt like we would have enjoyed more with group up to 6 people. Yet, for the first time this was great :)

Hi glad you enjoyed it! Interesting what you said about group sizes, we are thinking about private groups next year, just got to find a way for our booking system to support it. Thanks for the prompt!

Nothing I had seen or read prepared me for how awesome this experience was. A baking hot day and cool refreshing water may have helped admittedly, perhaps alot. Apparently this adventure is in some top 100 things to do before you die and deservedly so. My daughter suggested we do it, I thought it was going to be a bit tame, just kind of shimmying down a shallow stony brook. But this little stream, which clearly flows much fuller and faster at other times, has hollowed out huge deep pools, still well over 6ft deep despite recent low rainfall , which you can plunge into and nice smooth rocks to slide down. Can't remember the last time I had so much fun. Plunging head first backwards into a rocky pool; awesome. As I mentioned the baking hot date helped, it was such a relief to get in the water after the trek up the hill, during which we were passed by what appeared to be identical Richard Branson look-a-likes, riding bikes, does he have a brother? Which helped at to the surrealism of the experience. The ghyl is just another world, which you can barely imagine, even though the well used track is close by. A shout out to the amazing and awesome guide/instructor, Jay, who explained and demonstrated everything clearly, pointing out all the potential rocky and trip hazards and was just a great host. If you tried to do it without the knowledge or correct gear, you would definitely come a cropper. Thanks Jay & Keswick Adventures.

This was the highlight of our holiday, we did a 1/2 day ghyll scrambling adventure at Church Beck Sept 17th. A real joy from start to finish including the booking process before and after. A real professional approach. John our instructor was fabulous a real friendly guy with great knowledge and skills to keep us safe and the patience of a Saint. The encouragement of John meant all members of our party had the full experience and overcame some fears. This was a real lake district taster of outdoor living, so exhilarating and beautiful. I wanted to see a waterfall well this is even better you are in one !! If in doubt don't be just give it a go, life is for living after all !!! Highly recommend mobile adventure.

Really good fun couple of hours and well organised. John is an excellent leader who makes the activity fun and keeps everyone smiling and confident. Arrived early and had all the gear ready for us to speed up the admin process which was very quick.

There was only 4 of us in the group, me and a friend joined by a father and teenage daughter. The small group size ensured we weren't waiting anywhere and it all flowed very well and smoothly. The whole thing only took 2 hours. Hats offto the young girl who wasn't phased by anything and did it all without hesitation. We saw other larger groups who took longer to get through it but we didn't need to wait anywhere.

We were apprehensive about the water temp but the wetsuits etc we used were very good and we didn't feel cold at all. The jumps into water are not huge but a couple of them do make you think for a second or two but it's all so much fun and well worth it. A must do activity to spend a couple of hours whilst in the Lakes.

We were a group of 5, four adults and one child age 8yrs. John was our guide and he was enthusiastic and made the activity a lot of fun while always ensuring our safety.

I was worried that Ghyll scrambling would be too much for my young daughter, but she had a whale of a time and it was the highlight of her/our trip to the Lake District.

If you have young children who are confident in water then Ghyll scrambling is a must do!

Our guide was brilliant! He had great local knowledge and clear safety instructions....he also made us laugh a lot! A perfect way to explore the area. I would recommend this to a friend and hope to return. This was perfect for our family group and a really adventure. Our group ranged from 8 - 50 years old.

Awesome experience

I booked with mobile adventures for ghyll scrambling for my family (children: 7 and 14 years old).
There were other families also in various groups. Our guide ”John” was very cooperative, helpful and considerate for the children. It was an awesome experience and I was very lucky to have amazing people in my group who were helping each other out.

Wetsuits provided by the mobile adventures was of very good quality.
Its ideal to take lot of towels to dry oneself up after the activity.
All in all it was a wonderful activity

Ghyll scrambling is a fantastic adventurous activity. Our group leader, Ross took care of everyone but also ensured we all made the most of the spectacular environment and had a lot of fun.

The wetsuits and kit were good quality and kept us comfortable for the three hours of activity. If you are scrambling down waterfalls and jumping into pools, you definitely need good kit!

The scenery is beautiful and it is a great, activity that we all thoroughly enjoyed!
Many thanks for the efficient organisation and for ensuring we all had a fantastic time.

This was an excellent experience, two teenagers and myself, one of the teenagers a total indoor recluse. We all had a fantastic time Jenny was our guide, very engaging and bubbly really made the whole activity enjoyable.
I can imagine many looking at this thinking it’s too scary, it’s not that bad, and you won’t know until you try it. You will get wet, but it’s just water and definitely gives you a different perspective of the Lake District and a nice break from the normal hikes.
The Mobile Adventure booking experience was great, what made it better was having a phone number to ask questions before booking regarding equipment specifics and advice on sizes as well as general questions about the activity.
