Staff where highly knowledgeable in fitting you to the right ski boot. For a local ski shop there prices may not be the cheapest, but it does reduces the hassle of having to shop around. Would recommend a visit.

Had some poorly advised ski boots from the snow dome, who really didn't listen to me or stretch them enough to make them comfortable. Gave up and went to Lockwoods, brilliant service, now have boots that I can do up without my feet going numb! Wish I had gone to them first.

A great service supplied by Ollie fitting my boots and by Maxine kitting me out with all the gear followed by Pete with the correct ski travel bag! A great service all around. 5*

Fantastic service and wonderful help to buy my latest set of walking boots. Such care with fitting really paid off, within 2 weeks of owning them I'd done several 10 and 15 miles walks without a blister or an ache. Lockwoods are the go to boot suppliers for me

Another excellent experience at Lockwoods, this time to sort out the children with updated boots. Excellent trade in service makes it a no brainer for ski equipment, if only I could get them to take their boots off in the house now!

Never thought I would get a pair of boots that fit properly, but had not realised how much is involved in making sure they do! The free fitting service carried out by Steve in a no rush atmosphere was brilliant and very informative. We also had a free coffee whilst waiting. Many thanks

We went in before Christmas to buy some walking clothing for Ben Nevis and just walking. Maxine was brilliant knew exactly what we needed and gave us several op...tions to choose from, her knowledge was excellent, she was very attentive and patient. We came away feeling very satisfied with our brilliant clothing and equipment and would go back for sure. See More

Excellent service from staffordable who know what they talking about. They are not not just out to sell you the most expensive equipment. They want to make sure you get the best equipment at the best price.

Just bought new ski boots from Lockwoods. Fanastic service from friendly and very knowledgable people. The aim was to put you in the right boots, not sell you i...nto something you didn't really need. The prices are good too. The norm in ski shops is, to basically steal from you. Not here. Everything is properly and competitively priced with all the sizes you need.

Great place. I will not be shopping for outdoor or ski stuff anywhere else in the near future.

Had a fantastic experience in this shop where they sold me a thoroughly suitable and very comfortable pair of boots. Travelled 45 minutes to this place and it was thoroughly worth the trip.

Visited Lockwoods again today, after off to Namibia, so thought about their carrier bag photo thing they do. Once again bored staff sat on stools behind the cou...nter, no interest in customer service, so had a wander around,there were 5 customers in the store, looked at various items of clothing and left, 3rd visit this year and still the same experience. I shall be going elsewhere.. You have lost a regular customer who has relied on you for many years.. See More

Had a very good experience getting some ski boots fitted and moulded today with the pleasant Bethany, and all other fitters appeared good too. Took an hour and ...a half getting it all done and it never felt like you were being rushed despite people waiting (ticket system). I was expecting quite a long wait given the time of year and with it being a Saturday but I was seen straight away. The shop is also very well stocked with plenty of helpful staff. Well worth the trip, and I would recommend. The real test will come when I get them on the slopes, but I have confidence they were well fitted. See More

We recently learned that one of our former ski boot fitters - now based in New Zealand - had completely run out of legendary Lockwoods carrier bags (they are so very, very handy after all). We are delighted to report that we were able to immediately dispatch our head of ski hardware to deliver a new one. Looks like they managed a bit of skiing too!

Just finished a shop ready for a Lakes holiday and had to say it was fab to come across such as well stocked specialist shop. Never easy shopping for size 13 ba...rges but had plenty of choice and salesman/guru gave great advice and not pushy! Can't wait to go and try out the boots and rest of the kit purchased🏔🏔🏔
