The segway experience was a lot of fun, with a beautiful lake surrounding and an interesting woodland course. However, with the safety breifing and the time each individual had to get used to the segway, only about 35 mins was spent on the segway. It...More

Bray Lake is just round the corner and what a lovely place to just walk around, look at all the activities of the day, enjoy the surrounding with a steaming hot coffee and where the staff are friendly and welcoming.

Arrived to partake in stand up paddle boarding. Staff were rude, condescending and spoke to us as though we were pieces of dirt. Clean up your act! It's not what you say, it's the way you say it!!!!

The kit was pretty reasonable although charging extra for use of wetsuit wasn't great especially when the wetsuit had holes in it. Changing rooms were very clean perhaps a little small for large groups and the showers were out of order when we were there....More

Hi Lucy, I've had a look and can see The Olde Bell in Maidenhead is a dog-friendly B&B! It's about 4 miles away from Bray Lake. Hope this helps!
