Attraction Information

There's a 90 minute taster on offer for families to try out stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, windsurfing and kayaking! No excuse not to find to your next new family activity! The instructors are highly qualified and excellent at working with newbies and families - of newbies!

If you prefer it dry side there's also a cycle hire facility amidst a network of routes including the short family friendly 3 miler and the considerably more gruelling 8 miler! Mountain bikes, electric bikes, child seats, tag a longs and tow buggies are all available so no need to tote the kit yourselves!

During the summer holiday period there are several extra activities and fun days laid on, so it's well worth keeping an eye out using our handy link (its over there!) to see what extra fun you can get in on! There are also regular orienteering events held here, ideal for active families! Plus boat oriented fly fishing is also permitted here.
