Booked for two days sailing tuition this summer and then went back for a third. Going back in September - what more can we say (apart from "sorry you lost your hat, Tom")!

Popped in here with the wife and daughter one afternoon to do some kayaking. Fabulous staff. Very welcoming. Changing facilities with showers. A lot more relaxed than similar setups on other lakes. Will definitely return 👍
