Team Building and Corporate Testimonials

“Great campsite with excellent facilities. Our team of senior and junior executives camped for one night on site and then the second night up in a field with spectacular views of Dales.   Our every whim (and there were many) was catered for by Stan and his team, who remained enthusiastic and un-phased by our requests weeks leading up to the event and during the event. Well worth a visit!”    Bea Thombs & Delia Kerry – Bain Capital Europe LLP

“I would like to thank yourself, Claire & Stan for looking after us so well last Friday – we had a fantastic time and will definitely recommend you to any other people wanting to throw themselves off a bridge into freezing cold water!”



We had a fabulous day at How Stean Gorge entertaining clients.  Everyone was very excited to join us on the day and they certainly weren’t disappointed. Stan and his team put everyone at ease and ensured they enjoyed the activities.  It was a great event for a mixed group and everyone interacted really well.  We have received excellent feedback and will certainly look to take another group.”
