Hired a raft for a morning with instructor, had great fun. Something new we'd never (save 1) done before. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and good fun. Equipment was in good order and full instruction was given. Great place. Would happily recommend.

On our arrival we were surprised that the building and car park were not much bigger. The centre is not well signposted from the main road so it's worth studying the site on a map before traveling so you have an idea of the exact...More

We used a red letter days voucher for a family tubing session, and all had fun. Instructors were friendly, funny and reassuring when they needed to be! Broke the course into chunks to help build confidence, but unfortunately ran out of time to do it...More
