This was an outstanding visit. We had a great time and look forward to coming again.
Tilstock School

I have said it many times before and will continue to say it- I don’t think you can beat The Old Vicarage Adventure Centre for its range of activities, consistently fantastic instructors, family friendly atmosphere, stunning scenery and attention to detail. To put it simply I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Tarleton Primary School

Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Activities delivered brilliantly and safely. All of the children and teachers have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. THANK YOU.
Olive Hill Primary School

Brilliant! The best outdoor adventure centre I have been to. Paul, Duncan, Holly, Alex and Bill made our 3 days just fantastic. All very lovely people.
Prestfelde School

We all enjoyed our visit and the manner in which the instructors encourage and support the children. We appreciate the efforts of all the Staff. Thank you.
Bicton Primary

I cannot thank you enough for managing to sort out all the arrangements for our School visit. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time with you and I would find it impossible to suggest any part of the stay that wasn't perfect. The children got so much out of their time with you, and ALL the staff were fab (Mrs D was told by one pupil it was the best meal he had ever had!) The only thing we would change for next year is to extend our visit.


Family Adventure Day

Just a quick line to Holly, Duncan and everyone who helped make today's family adventure day such an enjoyable one. The relaxed friendly atmosphere meant we all felt we could have a go, and often surprise ourselves with what we achieved.  We had a great time and can't believe how much we managed to try in one day (zip wire, archery, laser battle, leap of faith, Jacobs ladder and raft building).

We were buzzing all the way back to Shrewsbury, thanks again.

Childrens' Adventure Day

Our two boys love going to OVAC/Live the Adventure. We want them to appreciate nature and benefit from an interest in one or more outdoor activities and OVAC provides a high quality introduction. The Adventure days are fun and varied and give an opportunity to try new things in a safe and homely environment. The instructors know how to motivate the kids and seem sensitive and supporting.

 Orienteering and Climbing are my favourites - they are fun but you use your brain too!  William, 8 yrs.

It's awesome!  Joseph, 8 yrs.

Corporate - River and Rail Day

Sutcliffe & Co regularly use Live The Adventure for corporate events and through popular demand are about to embark on our third canoe river trip. Every event they have hosted for us has been fun and inclusive creating a real positive buzz for weeks afterwards.

Corporate - It's A Knock Out Tournament

Live the Adventure were an integral part of Hobsons 20th anniversary celebrations which involved an "It's a knock out competition" held at Hopton Court. We approached Live the Adventure to run our event as we felt they were a highly experienced and professional company to deliver a team challenge in a fun and safe manner.
The event was a great success, the team showed great enthusiasm and efficiency in how they managed over 100 competitors, many inexperienced and apprehensive. We found the team to be very supported throughout the whole process of planning the event to its execution. Hobsons would highly recommend Live the Adventure and look forward to planning future events with them.

Stag and Hen Pick n Mix Adventure Weekend

Live The Adventure helped organise a stag weekend for my brother in law. They gave us an action packed couple of days full of laughter and great memories, far better than the clichéd city centre events I had been on before.
