  • The sport center is a great place for all the family. With good value membership fees, get a lesson, Buy a cheap second hand boat and join a friendly world of water based fun.
  • I mainly visit to cycle round, although they cater for many outdoor activities and water sports
  • Unfortunately it was raining when we arrived here and the cafe was shut. We braved the rain and went for a short walk and promised ourselves we would come back to either walk the 8 miles round the beautiful site or bike round - can't wait!
  • Always good for a walk, bike, kayak, sail etc. Theres something for everybody. If going on the water it may be a good idea to check the website to see if any events are on as this may affect plans.
  • Nice area for walking and water sports club house daily hire of some equipment wind surfing on Lake range from very good to ok the trees surrounding the reservoir effect the wind making it gust good for learning with support boats.
