1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

David and Suzie helped us get to grips with sea kayaking in a very supportive way - we had never been in kayaks before and they made it very easy and enjoyable as soon as we set off. Visiting coves which you could only access from the sea was great and we saw the coastline in a way which you can only do from the sea. Being following by a seal for a few minutes also was quite a thrill! Sea kayaking is a great experience.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Just go for it - you will be with great people and if you like the outdoors it is a lot of fun. David and Suzie are passionate about what they do and that really comes through.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - we ate locally and David and Suzie take a lot of care to minimise impacts.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

An excellent short vacation - incredible coastline, fantastic kayaking with knowledgeable, experienced and friendly hosts. Happy to fit the days out to all levels of ability and/or fitness. Great accommodation in a beautiful area.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Obviously a sea kayaking vacation is very weather/wind dependent. Be prepared to be flexible with routes and lengths of trips and just enjoy the experience. Better to take a small waterproof / resistant camera than use your phone (on the water). Very easy access from London and elsewhere in the train.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the hosts Dave and Susie were excellent in this respect. Accommodation was all environmentally friendly and low impact, food was healthy and locally sourced (where possible), plenty of opportunity for recycling food and other waste was provided. But perhaps best of all, on all the beaches we visited as part of the day trips out kayaking, a short period of time was suggested for collecting plastic (and other waste) off of the beaches we landed on - some can only be accessed by sea so any effort to keep them clean by people who visit is essential.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, one of the best long weekends I have had in years. Great sea kayaking with friendly and very useful instruction (if wanted), amazing scenery and coastline, very new and appropriate equipment (kayaks and accessories), good food, lovely accommodation and charming and interesting host - would thoroughly recommend either a weekend, or as an alternative booking the barn accommodation for a week (but very popular).
