If you're looking for speed, then this isn't for you... BUT... if you want to throw away all your carefully learned road driving skills and get a different perspective on driving, then go for it. The thought of driving up (and down) muddy slopes as steep as the roof of my house with no brakes was unnerving, but after some practice on smaller slopes I did what I thought was impossible, and I have the photos to prove it. Driving along a track tilted sideways at seemingly impossible angles in sloppy mud just added to the fun. My instructor was very friendly, cool and calm, and clearly explained what to do and when (and how), especially when at the top of a slope all I could see was the sky - it was like driving off the edge of a cliff! I got stuck halfway up a slope - no problem - just stick it in reverse, hold the wheel straight and "fall" backwards... This is the slowest motor sport imaginable, and is a guaranteed adrenaline rush. I was lucky – I got an hour and a half of one-to-one, and drove home afterwards with a huge grin on my face.An amazing birthday present! This is NOT a spectator venue - there are no facilities except mud and a Land Rover.

The day was great - clear, dry & bright but recent rain had left the course suitably muddy. The welcome was friendly & cheerful, fellow drivers congenial and Tom our instructor excellent. As a past car driving instructor, he was calm and unflappable, as well as gentle and patient. His vehicle was superb, with very impressive specifications and made the occasion brilliant - comfy seats and all the 4x4 'bells & whistles' to make the Land Rover unstoppable whatever the challenge. Luckily one of my colleagues didn't wish to take her second chance to drive, so Tom drove us around some demanding sections that only experienced off-roader drivers would be able to attempt - a wonderful finale to a special birthday treat.

The day was outstanding, Alex our instructor was very knowledgeable and passed this his experience on to us with ease, there were two of us in the vehicle but we both got plenty of driving time. The course was excellent and they don't hold back when it comes to the hills. I would recommend this to everybody. Thank you for an excellent driving experience

Not to hard to find . Great experience which you have to do to understand its appeal . When at the top of a hill you have few or no reference points unless you look out the side. Great instructor keeps you on track as all your senses want you to do the opposite of what you have to do. Going back wards when you don't make it to the top of a hill , turn and look back , "No" just put it in reverse and let gravity do the rest. No facilities on site but there is a hotel a short walk away.
