Adventurous | Enthusiastic | Outdoors

Mini Bio

I taught for 32 years at a school in Dorset. Throughout that time, I was involved in, and responsible for, the Outdoor Education Department. At various times, this included leading the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Ten Tors Training, kayaking, surfing and Adventurous Training (as part of the CCF). Over the years, I organised several Adventurous/Mountain charity challenges. I have always enjoyed sharing my love of the outdoors with others.

Favourite Place to Play

Gosh! I am happy surf kayaking on Cornwall’s north coast, wild camping and hiking on Dartmoor, and rock climbing in the Peak District. I also enjoy climbing mountains in Scotland when I get the chance.

Not a lot of People Know This

It is no secret that I have always enjoyed being in the great outdoors, an enjoyment that started at school. People might not know that one of my most memorable early trips, to the Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons) in Wales, did not quite go according to plan. In particularly windy conditions, our leader’s glasses blew off and our map flew away – we found the glasses, but we never did find that map!

Experience Read More

I joined the Mountaineering Club at school. I have enjoyed walking, climbing, and paddling adventures in the Outdoors throughout the UK and Europe ever since.

Biggest Adventure Read More

Leading a group of students to complete a challenge for charity involving summiting the nine highest peaks in the UK in one continuous journey.

What Fellow Travellers Say About Simon

Simon was very knowledgeable on the history and route and pleasant to deal with. He was diligent in plans for each day and flexible when people were sick. He worked hard to engage the quieter members of the trip.

Simon was very knowledgeable and helpful. He provided a wealth of background information to enhance our experience on Hadrian's Wall. He strove to accommodate our various needs and interests so that each person had the best possible trip.

already raved about Simon our guide in the beginning. He is from Cornwall and was able to share all the great places only the local knows.

Simon was an excellent guide. He knew the trails, the history and points of interest. He knew all the local places to go-sites, restaurants, etc. He did an outstanding job!

Make Trip Private

Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
