Why and How we do what we do



Family days out – taking a step back from our individual busy lives – are essential for spending special moments together and creating memories. Breathing in the fresh air, trying out new water-based sports in the middle of Cotswold Water Park, celebrating when things go well, laughing lots when they don’t all, make for an enjoyable, fun-packed family day out.

We can offer you two focussed packages – sailing or canoeing, depending upon your own particular interests and the dates we have available. Both, however, provide you and your family with a unique opportunity to try out a new water-based sport in combination with some exciting land-based activities; all making for an unforgettable family day out in the Cotswolds.

Your safety can be assured at all times as you will be guided by an experienced instructor who will be on hand to teach you new navigational skills as you make your way around the lake to your secluded lunch spot. Make sure to include some marshmallows in your packed lunches so that you can enjoy them over an open fire along with a warming cup of tea or hot chocolate.

After lunch, your new sailing or canoeing skills will be tested as you steer your way through a specially designed water based orienteering course, at the end of which is the ultimate wet challenge – the Kayak Slide! Finally, your family adventure will rounded off by our underground tunnel taks or our testing team bridge building activity.  Are you and your family up for the challenge?
