“Just back from an hour on the lake. Great fun. Super friendly and helpful staff. We opted for SUP hire but plenty of other options from simple rowing boats, through kayaks for one or two.”

“Great for walking and mountain biking through all seasons. Excellent cycle tracks and footpath network through a superb land and waterscape. Fantastic range of wildlife and waterbirds – and all for free!! Don’t just visit the one major lake. The Thames Path snakes all the way through from the source to Cricklade then on to Lechlade”
