Important information regarding participant medications

We kindly ask that any medication left in our care is clearly listed on the online consent form, along with information on what it is for and when to be administered. 

Please also state clearly if medicines left at the centre must accompany the participant at all times (on land and water), or can be left at a central location within the centre. If the medication must stay with the participant at all times (on land and water), you must provide a dry pack for the medication.

Read our What to Bring Guide and FAQs for further information. 

Canoe and Kayaking 

Age 8+

Canoeing and Kayaking is a diverse sport ranging from flat water touring to white water. Come and dip your toes in the water and see what it's all about. This taster session will give you a relaxed introduction to canoeing and Kayaking (you choose which one). Once our Paddlesport Instructor has taught you the basic skills you need to control the craft we will set out to explore Black Swan Lake.


Age 8+

You will quickly pick up the skills with our enthusiastic paddleboard instructors - the boards are remarkably stable once you get used to it - and in no time you will be gliding across the water, enjoying the lake from a different perspective.


Age 8+

Learn how to harness the natural power of the wind as you sail around the lake, under the close guidance of a qualified instructor. 

Try Sailing Free

Age 8+

We are please to have three dates this year where you can try sailing for free on our short 30 minute sessions with an instructor at the helm and three participants per boat. These can be booked online now. If you would like a longer taster with a chance to helm the boat yourself then we also have plenty of our regular 1.5 hour sailing taster available to book online as well.

Prefer a more individual approach?  Bespoke tuition is a great way to begin a new sport or develop existing skills at a time to suit you. Prices start at £68pp for a 2 hour 1:1 session, including equipment.
