What do people say about us?



"Big heartfelt thanks to ALL RoF team for an excellent weekends adventure around your lovely island with like minded lunatics. You need to make it tougher though because even though I had NO sleep for two nights due to a mating walrus in the room and nature threw some pretty grim weather at us on day two I still managed, albeit only just, to complete the challenge and I loved it. You know when your truly knackered when you're marching along and you can't even bother to deviate your stride from hitting an enormous fresh steaming cow poop. Not an event to be taken lightly."
