I don't know about you guys, but I seem to have lost June somewhere along the line and we're now into July. Can you believe it's only a couple of weeks away until the school summer holidays start.

With that being said, I wanted to make sure you have all the details of what we have in store this summer for both you and the little ones to make the most of the school break...

All the details you need to know are on the links below.

Our open days are always a big seller and invariably sell out each time we offer one as they are such great value for money... Three hours, five activities and only £24 is as close as we can make it to credit-crunch-beating prices. May and June's Open Days sold out in advance and it is likely that both July and August Family Fun Fests will do the same. Tickets are already on sale and starting to be snapped up.

July's Sunday Family Fun Fest is on Sunday 16th July...

You can grab yourself either a morning or afternoon ticket for 3 hours of all inclusive fun trying out paddleboarding, kayaking, canoes, sailing and our Sky Line Aerial Adventure. There is something for all the family to enjoy with just 240 tickets available for both morning and afternoon.

Tickets are just £24 each so grab yours today.


July's Pay & Play is available to book now, so if you are making plans with family or friends, be sure to book yours early as this recent warm weather has peaked everyone's interest. Paddleboards, Canoes, Kayaks, Katakanus and our Sky Line Aerial Adventure are available every weekend and every day during the school holiday to have fun with the whole family.

We have also extended our special Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening discount pay and play hire up to the start of the school holidays... so if you fancy an after-work or school play on the lake, be sure to grab your tickets while they last... You can't beat paddleboard hire for just £12 and you can even treat yourself with a drink and a cake in the Lodge afterwards. 


Everyone has just noticed that summer is only a couple of weeks away and demand for our holiday activities has stepped up a gear... We only have a handful of sailing course places left and interest in our Discovery Club and Taster Experiences is increasing daily. If you want to check out what all the fuss is about, check out the link below.

Summer Discovery Club is always popular and we have crammed as many into the holidays as we can, and increased the number of children we can take each day, but kept the groups down to just ten per instructor. Once they are gone, we don't have capacity to add any more. If you are looking or a week filled with adventure, fun and keeping the kids entertained, then Discovery Club is just what you are looking for and only £63 a day. Available five days a week during the school holidays, we have an exciting line-up of activities to keep your little ones entertained... From sailing to kayaking, paddleboarding to high ropes, survival skills to raft building and even archery - There's something for everyone.


Whether an adult or child, iif you want to dip your toe into a range of water sports, we have taster experiences available. 

Whether its kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing or archery, we offer 2-3 hour experiences with an instructor taking you through the essentials to give you a flavour of what it is like. All our tasters are mixed activities, so you are welcome to join as a family in the same session.



The Lodge is now open in the evenings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays and serving our popular street food menu serving from 10am to 5pm every day.

Boa Buns are back on the menu by popular demand with an awesome soy glazed pork belly filling this time.
