We had a wonderful morning on the Wild Cat Island tour! We have 4 children aged 6,8,10 and 12 they absolutely loved it as did my husband and I. Highly recommend. Fun morning exploring Coniston lake and all its charms!

Hi Gemma Thanks for taking time to review your session with us. Glad that you enjoyed your trip to Wild Cat Island. Coniston is a great lake to explore and always much quieter than Windermere or Ulswater.

We had a brilliant time with Adam out on the lake. He looked after us all and was very patient. It was such a fun experience and we would definitely recommend it. From start to finish, it was OAR-some!

Took a stag group raft building, the hungover stag slept under a tree in his wetsuit but the rest of us had a good laugh. A fun but not to physically intense activity for a Saturday afternoon.More

most children are aged between 7 and 13 but it does depend on the child and what sort of things the family are use to doing. The time of year is also a factor. We have also take 5 year olds and 70 year olds but not often.
