These guys were great, our instructor (Mick?) was clearly passionate about his job and made the whole day enjoyable and interesting. Clay pigeon shooting was spot on for a stag do; Mick gave good technique tips and made things a bit competitive but kept it light-hearted, and gorge walking was what the outdoors in Wales should be all about.

We had an absolutely great time! It was a group of 3 of us aged 21-25 and had booked in for high ropes and caving. We had a great guide to ourselves all day (thanks luke!). The day was very relaxed and there's a garage down the road that does yummy hot home made paninis etc. All staff were lovely... More

Been meaning to write this review for a week now, I was so amazed at how good my experience was I have told everyone!!! We were hosted and taken care of by Mick, who was wonderful! Made us feel very safe and supported at all times. The gorge walking was amazing, jumping off waterfalls, climbing up steam against the current!!!... More

Truly fantastic well run activity centre. We had a great time Rock Climbing with Warwick, Canoeing with Luke and Gorge Walking with Sven and Matt. The guides are very attentive to individual needs and were fantastic with my 8 year old, helping her do all aspects of the activity. Would highly recommend to all families with Teens

Gorge walking- full day- family Only reason this did not get 5 stars is its would of been nice to get a photo of us doing some of the gorge walk jumps etc. I'm not that fused but in this media age the kids were gutted they couldn't share this special experience with friends on social media and in turn...

We went Gorge walking - 7 children aged from 8 - 12 and 2 mums. Our instructor, Mick, set the pace exactly right - enough of a challenge without scaring anybody. During our full day (approx. 4 hours) we climbed through holes, scaled waterfalls and jumped from higher than we though we could. Everyone had a great day - thanks... More

This venue offers plenty of space, views, and a great restaurant and shop. The area around the car park and restaurant gives access to disabled visitors. Food is very good and available for most of the day

We went to Black Mountain Activity Centre twice on our holiday this year. First we did gorge walking and had a great afternoon with Warwick who was a really good instructor. He kept us entertained on the drive and the activity was brilliant and my teenage boys loved it. Went back for a ½ day canoeing trip. They fitted us... More

I've just finished 3 days with Black Mountain Activities, during which my 3 sons and I did High Ropes, Gorge Walking, Rock Climbing and Canoeing. All the activities we completed were well planned to make sure we were challenged but safe, and the instructors were engaging, knowledgeable and knew how to get the best out of each of us. A...
