Lakeside Ski & Wake
Lakeside is a unique venue in a unique location, on the Watermark Club complex, overlooking Spring Lake, just outside the village of South Cerney. Lakeside has one of the best water sports facilities in the country, Lakeside Ski and Wake, a vibrant family friendly sports bar and restaurant, the Lakeside Brasserie, plus a gymnasium.
Lakeside Ski and Wake is the place to be for fun water sports! Enjoy a great family day, on or off the water. Come and try exciting inflatable rides, water skiing and wake boarding. Lakeside Ski and Wake’s sheltered tree lined lake makes it an ideal place for beginners to learn to waterski or wakeboard.
Our fun inflatable rides will take your breath away. Choose from ringos, individual inflatables which go out two at a time, or one of our new Stingray rides which can take up to six riders. For groups of 10 or more Lakeside Ski & Wake also has a great package called “Wild Water Parties”. These offer fun inflatable rides, plus a meal in the Lakeside Brasserie, for a price per head. All equipment is included in the cost, participants just need to bring swimwear & towels. Great for Birthdays, hen & stag parties or corporate functions.
Our sheltered lake and expert, friendly coaching makes Lakeside Ski & Wake the perfect place to learn to water ski or wake board. We teach water skiing from as young as 3 years old and do “taster courses” for novices from age 7 upwards. Courses are done on a one to one basis with our ski/wakeboard coach and have a very high success rate, with most beginners being able to ski or wakeboard behind the boat after their lesson. For more experienced skiers, Lakeside Ski & Wake offers a fully homologolated slalom course and Zero Off speed control on the ski boat.
The Lakeside Gym is located above the Lakeside Brasserie and offers panoramic views of Spring Lake. It is fully air conditioned and is equipped with Precor cardiovascular equipment such as treadmills & cross trainers plus David resistance weights and a Smith machine. Memberships are £20 per month with no joining fee or contract and for single use of the gym there is a session fee of just £5.
The Lakeside Brasserie is a sports bar and restaurant offering relaxed family dining and fantastic lake views. It has a decked sun terrace and garden area where al fresco diners can watch all the fun on the water. The menu includes favourites such as fajitas, burgers, steaks, home made pizzas, fresh salads and children’s meals. You can of course just come in for freshly ground Italian coffee or ice cold beer. The Lakeside Brasserie features on sport, showing live matches from Sky on big screens and plays host to live music and party nights throughout the year. It is open daily – check our website for seasonal opening hours.
