Had a great time on the course. I didn’t think that dry stone walling would be so rewarding. Lovely location and great course leaders. Feel like I got a lot for my money. Thanks very much!

Response from Dry Stone Walling Association North Wales Branch:

Thanks for that lovely review Mick and so glad you enjoyed the course. I like to come on them and see those who have booked and also to keep my hand in.

Both my wife and I attended the course and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. We now have the courage and knowledge to dismantle our decrepit and ageing dry stone wall and rebuild it.

Fab two days and Colin and Paul the instructors were, knowledgeable, pleasant and approachable.

Highly recommended if you are interested in dry stone walls.

Response from Dry Stone Walling Association North Wales Branch:

Thanks for that lovely review Philip. I am just a keen amatuer and not a qualified instructor. I like coming on the courses to meet those who have booked and keep my hand in. So glad you and Cath enjoyed the course.

Fancied having a go at dry stone walling for over ten years, my wife got me the course as a gift. The setting was idyllic and the weather held, the course itself was very informative and the course tutor was excellent at explaining and showing us how it was done. Would definitely recommend and would go again.
You do need to be reasonably fit and some of the stones are heavy, but the experience was well worth it.

Response from Dry Stone Walling Association North Wales Branch:

Thanks for this review Will. I have passed it onto Iolo. To say some of the stones are heavy is an understatement - they are monsters. I`m glad you enjoyed the course.
