landscape. See Richard's comments below....
DON'T JUST TAKE OUT WORD FOR IT !
" Dear Iain,
Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for
the brilliant weekend of guiding I spent with you
8th and 9th May. It was an excellent 50th birthday
surprise from my wife. I had a wonderful time and
Andy could not have been more patient or encouraging.
He was excellent company and made the weekend.
I enclose some photos to show an unfit 50 year old
can have a good time caving and abseiling.
Thanks again to you and your staff."
Richard Sacharewic ( Redditch, Worcs. )
Just a few lines to say thank you for the kind hospitality
shown to me and my son. We both had a very informative
exciting and enjoyable weekend with you. Please pass on
our sincere thanks to all your staff. We look forwrd to taking
part in future activities with you.
Dear Iain, Caroline and Tony,
Just a quick line to say many thanks for last weekend.
All 6 of us agreed what a great weekend of fun it was,
and you humour, patience and encouragement ( especially
with the abseiling ) was paramount to that. We had great
fun on the second day at the watersports centre raft building
( and sinking) and kayaking.

( These 6 jolly women booked 2 days of private instruction
in June 2007enjoying abseiling, orienteering a bike trail
quest and sessions of watersports).

Just a quick thank you to you and all
your team at Rock Lea. We thoroughly
enjoyed our two days with you. Andy
was an excellent guide and made the
experience very enjoyable for myself
and Dale. We hope to be back again
and trying something different with
you next year.

Dear Caroline and Iain,
Just a quick e-mail to say thank you for
looking after my group so well last week
and for organising such great weather and
activities for us. A few of us were a little stiff
on Friday morning but everyone really enjoyed
our sessions with you.
Thanks again - Joss

John Thomas, one of our very experienced and
BMC qualified staff teaching an intermediate climber
how to lead with the aid of pre-placed protection
for her added safetty. 1:1 guiding permits intensive
tuition to enable rapid progress at the pupil's own
pace & without any worries about making mistakes
in front of other people
We certainly enjoyed our day out with your guide.
It was everything and more of what we thought it
would be ! It really challenged me and Jane and
we both felt really good about ourselves and our
achievements ! Please pass on our thanks to your
team - and especially to John, who was the best
guide we could have wished for. We felt very safe
with him and because of that I was able to extend
myself and challenge fears within me.
Thanks again. We will certainly be keeping
an eye on your website. Best wishes to you all.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone there

very kind and warm hearted, enthusiastic and a very patient
guide. We learnt so much and he made us feel confident enough

Just as you can opt for private skiing lessons over in the Alps or
hire a personal trainer in a gymn you can also hire an experienced
qualified instructor in the UK from Peak Activities Ltd's Sports Division
in the Peak District to run exclusive & unique days or part days experiencing
thrilling activities such as caving, abseiling, scrambling or rock climbing.
We offer exclusive one-to-one instruction and totally personal training with
enthusiastic people who are happy to share their many years experience of
their sports activities they coach. Click for more details of our staff.
WHY COME TO THE PEAK DISTRICT ?
The accessible Peak District National Park is so easy to get to from
so many parts of the UK and abroad. It is a stunning venue in which
you can enjoy a relaxing exclusive day out as a private party with a
friendly local guide who is fully qualified by National Governing Bodies
and AALA Licensed. Our guides live and work in the Peak National Park
and have many years of deep local knowledge to draw upon.
Hiring one of our guides is an ideal experience for yourself if you want to
improve , say, your rock climbing or caving skills and it is a great gift for
someone you may want to impress and delight or surprise with a truly
unique & memorable present. It's an experience to be shared too...and
our prices for guiding have been designed to reflect that. Right now
it's exactly the same price for a party of up to six people as it is for
just one or two ! Ideal for families, small works parties, incentives,
jollies for groups of friends or for impressing your partner or visiting
friends or your customers with something that's really unusual, safe &
professionally organisedand fully insured.
Spend the whole day doing the event of your choice...or do two different
activities in the same day. For example combine a morning of caving with
an afternoon of abseiling. Evening sessions are also possible sometimes.
Many people choose to book 2 or more days of guiding with us.
When booking two or more consecutive days there are fee reductions
( please see our prices below).
A day or two of guiding with Rock Lea's staff is a great 40th or 50th birthday
surprise or an unusual graduation or anniversary present for those who've
always wanted to go rock climbing or abseiling or caving ! It's the same rate
whether you come alone of with two or three of your friends - because our
overheads for guiding are more or less the same for 1,2,3, or 4 people.
Whether it's a Raffle Prize, Business Incentive, Valentine's Day Gift or a
special Mother's or Father's Day celebration, call us & we'll be happy to
set up a really safe & unforgettable experience for you.
We can offer mornings, afternoons, full days & (sometimes ) evenings too.
