South Cerney Outdoor is an RYA and BCU training centre based on the banks of a 50 acre lake and land site of Special Scientific Interest. One of the oldest, deepest and biggest lakes in the Cotswold Water Park, we have so much to offer the whole family, from Spectators, Fun, Skills, Qualifications, Volunteering and Career opportunities.

At South Cerney Outdoor we believe that life should be an epic adventure, an adventure where we challenge ourselves to experience new things and stretch ourselves as individuals both physically and mentally, whilst spending quality time with great friends and family.

Licensed by AALA, the Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority, all staff are highly qualified and experienced instructors in RYA Sailing and Windsurfing and/or BCU Canoe and Kayak paddling. In addition, we offer a range of archery, tunnelling, team building, orienteering and bushcraft experiences for individuals, groups, schools, colleges and corporate organisations.


The safety of yourself and your group is paramount, but what you will notice most is the fun, friendly, exciting and welcoming atmosphere. You are not just another customer to us… You are like-minded friends who we want to help enjoy the adventure with us.
