I completed The Hills Skills course at the beginning of May. This was the 1st time I'd done anything like this before and was apprehensive. I needn't have been. The rest of the participants were great and the instructor was excellent: immense experience, credibility and manner. The course exceeded all my expectations and the facilities are amazing. Go for it!

I have completed the kayaking rolling course - the course, instructor and facilities were excellent. Really enjoyed my course and can't wait to go back and do some of the many activities available.

I had a very informative weekend. The instructors have a wealth of knowledge and experience that they imparted with great enthusiasm! The centre itself is stunning in both functionality and aesthetics. Really looking forward to the next course(s).

Great food and accomodation but when you go for 6 days of mountain climbing the last yhing you want is to have to climb a ladder to get to your bed. Only flaw.

Very good food for outdoor people! Comfortable accommodation too, and great facilities for climbing, high ropes, mountain biking, and paddlesports including a very useful roll pool. Great base for team building events and for adventure training.
