Reviews From Some of Our Customers

Schools and Colleges

Having taught for 20 years and been involved in a number of residential activities I found How Stean Gorge provided by far the best overall experience for all of the children and accompanying staff.  The activities were tailored exceptionally well to meet the needs of the students, and the instructors provided a professional and reassuring approach whilst making  the activities fun, educational and enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at How Stean Gorge.  On arrival the site was set up for us and all meals were cooked and prepared to very high standard, once again catering for all concerned. We are already looking forward to returning next year!

I have taken students to How Stean Gorge several times and have never been disappointed. The staff are first class in attitude, knowledge and hospitality. All my students have enjoyed the learning experience provided by Tony and the rest of the guys. Their attitude and the relationship they develop with students means that even the most reluctant / less confident students join in and benefit from challenging themselves with new experiences.I would thoroughly recommend How Stean as an educational residential event.

Business, Team Building and Corporate Days Out

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.Clarion Solicitors Leeds, W Yorks

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!
Thanks for the great ‘Experience’.Helen Connor Unilever

Other Group Reviews

Our group had a fantastic time, all went home feeling they had accomplished something. Lucy Borthwick Hambleton and Richmondshire Carers Centre

Both groups of Rangers, one lot staying Thursday, the other Saturday, both said independently that it is the best camp site they have stayed on.
For me it was the location and the hot water in the showers. ( I stayed 4 nights)

Friends and Family Reviews

We did the abseiling, rock climbing, gorge walking experience as a family of 4 and it was sufficiently challenging in places but a tremendous amount of fun also. We thoroughly enjoyed the How Stean Gorge experience and would definitely do it again – in fact it was one of the top highlights of our month long trip to the UK.Debra Ward Tampa, Florida, USA

I have been coming to How Stean every year since the age of 3, used to camp with my dad. Now I’m 31 and come with my children who love it just as much as me. Nicci Parkinson Hull, E Yorks

This is a fantastic site with excellent facilities. Good showers are available at no extra charge. It is great to visit a site where fires are allowed. The location with the spectacular gorge and cave is brilliant. Stan was extremely helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Gideon Wright Appleby, Cumbria

Had a fantastic six days at How Stean Gorge campsite, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the facilities were clean and it was a superb location. Jill Carsey Rye, E Sussex
