  • First visit, the area it self is lovely plenty of space to enjoy your day and the children run around. Disable park was not marked well and we found that people who where not disabled using them. We decided to have some sandwiches, service was disorganised and very slow one member of staff went outside she was on her moblie. The sandwiches where fresh and tasty. We went paddle boarding the equipment was in good order, the centre it self is looking tired. We had a good fun day we will take a picnic next time
  • Nice place to spend the day. Walk around the water as bout 8 miles. Can use your own cycle or hire from the shop. Light snacks for the shop.
  • Brilliant instructors- just done the last Oppi Club of the season and loved every minute!
  • There is a fantastic little cafe looking over the water! I make it a habit now of stopping there for a coffee and a cake when out on a ride or when I'm running round the lake! Staff are friendly and the scones are fresh!
  • Lovely place to walk cycle or run. A hidden gem. I think the path around the lake is a fraction over 8 miles...which is away from roads..with some great views across the lake. Lots of wildlife with bird hides for the bird watches...cycle hire cafe and water sports centre so plenty to do
