★★★★★ Mrs Hughes, Lumley Junior School
"We have used Weardale Adventure Centre for our Y6 school residential for many years and always find their service to be outstanding. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, experienced and friendly, providing suitable adventurous, challenging yet totally safe activities for our pupils. WAC constantly strive to improve their service, so every year we find our trip is even better than the previous one. Children leave Weardale with increased confidence and self esteem and our staff are always keen to return. We love visiting Weardale - it is one of the highlights of our school year. We are already looking forward to our next visit!"
