Tamar Lakes Country Park
Tamar Lakes are conveniently located just inland from the coastal resort of Bude. The fun, relaxed atmosphere makes it a great location to learn a new sport or hire a range of equipment from pedalos and rowing boats to windsurfers and dinghies. There is plenty to do at this scenic lake including a round lake walk and cycle trail suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, a children's play area and a cafe which is popular with walkers, families and those just enjoying the view!

Activity Centre
The Outdoor and Active Centre offers a variety of watersports including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and canoeing. You can hire a craft, launch your own, take part in taster sessions or gain RYA qualifications. The possibilities are almost endless!

School Holiday Activities
Keep your children happy and occupied during the holidays. Our Activity Weeks are an awesome way for 8 to 16 year olds to try out a range of activities on the water! Book for a day or a week.

And Birthday parties will never be the same again after you have experienced our birthday packages. Adrenaline or fun on the water, the choice is yours! For kids aged 6 years plus.
