Just want to show our thanks. A truly great day on Saturday. Thank you so much for hosting us, it was a fantastic day all round. If you know of any coming up or ones that your organising please let me know. Again, thank you so much for the weekend and looking after us.
Absolutely epic experience on Lake Windermere with Jason. What made the experience was to spend over 8 hours with such a genuinely nice man. Highly recommend one and all to to do any activity possible with Jason. You will not be disappointed.

It was brilliant and and Dan was fantastic, You are fortunate to have such a good instructor on your books, a thoroughly nice person too.
Thanks for the pictures, I will definitely be in contact with you again and spread the companys good name.
The pictures are great - please tell Jason thanks from me for giving Matt and Erin a great experience - they are still talking about it!
My brother got married a couple of weeks ago, and it reminded me that I wanted to thank you all for the fantastic weekend's kayaking which you set up for the 8 of us (his stag).
From my first conversation with you, to the boats, the barn, the music box, your staff, the beautiful landscape around you (which you probably can't take credit for), and even the weather, everything was fantastic. Danny in particular was on heroic form all weekend, and really went out of his way to look after us.
I'll certainly be recommending you to anyone prepared to listen.
Now that we’re both home again Jackie and I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the navigation training last week – we both thoroughly enjoyed it and got a lot out of the two days, a really worthwhile couple of days… and the best of the Lakeland weather!
Steve & Jackie
I just wanted to say a big thank you for organising the activities on Sunday and Monday. We all had a fantastic time and have some really good memories from our stay here in the lakes. I certainly will have no hesitation in recommending your company to others in the future.
Iain, Louise, Jack & William
Just took part in the Borders Barmy Army three peaks challenge. Sadly my Three Peaks became two after having to turn back a mile up Scafell, but still the most challenging and exhilarating experience of my life!
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to the guides who came with us, in particular, Paul who had the burden of leading the slow group most of the time. I felt so safe and supported throughout the whole challenge. Nothing was ever a problem for him. Totally astounded at the experience and professionalism of all the Distant Horizons team. They really helped make it a trip I will NEVER forget!
Planning to go back and SMASH Scafell in spring
Stephanie McCormick, Borders Barmy Army
I just wanted to thank the team on all of our behalf.
Thanks to the delightful Danny! He was top class and a credit to the company. He put up with our giddy nonsense, was a professional guide, yet wonderful company...it's a toss-up between him and the barn to which made our weekend the most!
Have to give a mention to Dave, who was also a great guide, he is super chilled, and an asset to the company too. Oh, and for all the Haribo, because, after all, grown-ups like Haribo too!!
We have all gone home aching and happy after a fabulous weekend of too much kayaking and too much laughing, and not before we officially renamed Lake Windermere as Lake XXXXX!!!
Thank you so much for everything. We will be back soon for another challenge! (collective groan from your office there!)
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and organisation for our challenge this weekend. All the participants really enjoyed it and could not praise your staff more for all their help - Jason, Dan and Andy. Hopefully we can work together again in the near future when we hold our next challenge. Many thanks.
Charlotte Kilby, Berenberg Bank
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you and the gang for the weekend. It was a fantastic weekend and although most of us are struggling to use the top half of our bodies we all had a great time.
The B&B was great. Freshly made scones on arrival and Angela even coped when we said we all wanted full English at 6.30!!
Thank you all very much. We are all looking forward to seeing the pics
Andy Brown, Architecture 519
Just a very quick email to you and your company to say a very big thank you for providing our team of ten volunteers (including me) with the delivery of a fantastic team challenge event, undertaken on Saturday the 23rd June 2012.
Despite the weather over the weekend the team really did enjoy the event and I have had feedback this morning from nearly all the team saying how much they enjoyed it and the sense of personal achievement they have felt from completing the challenge.
On behalf of the entire team could you please pass on to everyone that assisted us our genuine appreciation for all their efforts in making sure that we not only achieved our aim of completing the challenge (and by doing so raising money for the Royal British Legion) but also the fact that we thoroughly enjoyed taking part in it!! Special mention must go to Rob and Kav who kayaked the event with us, their expertise, patience, encouragement, and above all their sense of humour was greatly appreciated by all the team.
Also Andy must get a special mention for providing the much needed food and drinks whilst cycling all over the Lake District doing his own Bradley Wiggins impression to collect the team van and our kit etc. His efforts were also very much appreciated.
For information it appears that we are going to raise approximately £3500 for the charity which is a fantastic amount.
Thank You again for all your support in assisting us with our annual charity fund raising event, we all wish you the very best for the future.
Just a quick e-mail to thank you for a great day last Friday. Rob was a really good instructor and I hope we didn’t give him too much grief! Please pass on our thanks to him and Ian. The whole thing was really well organised and, despite Lake Windermere almost finishing a few of us off, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope to see you all again in the not too distant future.
You guys really made the event, your organisation, knowledge and expertise were second to none. Coupled with the fact you were all so very friendly and approachable and lead by example, none of this not getting your hands dirty and handing over a map. So thanks once again and I hope some of us at least will be seeing you again soon.
Thanks for sending through the link, I've had a sneaky peak and the photo's are great, looks like they all had a fabulous time!
Thank you very much for a great time last weekend, we all really enjoyed.
I just want to say a massive thank you for helping us organise my stag do, the weekend went perfectly and we all really enjoyed the activities you provided for us!
I'd like to thank you so much for the brilliant service and experience that your company provide! Memories to last long after the aches have subsided.
From the moment we first engaged with Jason and the rest of the team we had very positive feelings about how the challenge was going to work out. We have had some mixed experiences over the years with similar event coordinators and were therefore somewhat anxious that Distant Horizons would deliver what they said on the packet. But by golly gosh they certainly did and more. They were so professional and so supportive at all times during a whole day of events, any of which could have gone horribly wrong at any time with us motley crew involved! From the high spec equipment to the gastronomic delights at every pit stop between events, to the tips and training and preparation extending from pre-challenge right through the whole experience and finally the Youth Hostel and pub that they recommended everything about the weekend was perfect. I cannot say much more, except we will definitely be back with Distant Horizons next year.
We thoroughly enjoyed the event. If we were to rate your service from start to finish, we'd give you 10/10. Had no complaints and certainly will be in touch next year for assistance with another challenge.
Just wanted to drop you a belated thanks for organising the stag do a few weeks back, everyone really enjoyed it, especially the stag, so thanks again to yourself, Jason and Tom for sorting out a great day.
The challenge was brilliant. We couldn't fault any of it. The equipment we used was top notch and the whole day ran so smoothly. Jason and Rob were very friendly and great company to have along with us. We felt very safe and in very good hands and we would all like to give a huge thank you for that. We all had a really great weekend and it is all thanks to your company's great organisation of the days challenge. The cottage was very comfortable and the food was great.
I’d like to thank you and your team for a wonderful experience on the 3 peak challenge.
A massive thank you for organising the trip last week - everyone is in agreement that it was an awesome experience and very well run by Distant Horizons. You'll be impressed to know that 10 of us went clubbing in Glasgow to the early hours which meant our recovery took longer over the weekend!
Thanks again for organising such a great challenge event last Friday. It was fantastic. Your sea kayaks made the Windermere leg an absolute dream.
A belated thank you for all your support and encouragement to help us achieve our 4 Peak Challenge. I don't think any of us dreamt that we would be rock climbing and then actually do it!! You had thought of everything us oldies would need to keep us going even tea! It was an amazing weekend and I really enjoyed it. Great to be back in the Lakes again.
I just wanted to say a big thank you from me and the rest of the Welcome Foods lads.
Hi guys, from all of our party we would just like to say thank you for a great weekend the accomodation, food and your planning of the challenge was brilliant THANK YOU.
The instruction was very good and everyone understood it. After a previous bad experience, I thought it was great.
Thank you for a super day yesterday. All of the team had a thoroughly good day, and came back with renewed vigour and a better commitment to team cohesion.
The weekend was a huge success and everyone who I have spoken to since thought it was great. Thanks Jason for the disc of photos - they're really excellent! Perhaps he should consider a side line doing corporate photos! The whole weekend was fantastically organised, with excellent attention to the welcome finer details.
Jason and Jacques certainly go above and beyond expectations to deliver a great package, value for money and a memorable weekend. Thanks for everything!
Thanks so much I was truly Challenged! Thank you for your patience, perseverance and expertise. Thanks also to Claire for the delicious meals and snacks provided.
