I was originally booked on a two day course, but switched to a 1 on 1 private coaching session with Nick. This meant that the day was tailored and we got through a lot!

I opted for this as part of a birthday package, which was thoroughly enjoyed. We arrived early which meant we were able to enjoy the trails peacefully until midday but because the weather was not our side it wasn’t that busy. We opted for all...More
