Great variety of water sports, from swimming, through kayaking to wake-boarding. Personally I have only tried cable wake-boarding and found the whole experience very good, staff always helpful. Decent range of obstacles on track. Nice bbq\ rest area on site. Changing facilities could do with some upgrading. Can get fairly busy on a hot weekend day!

My husband and I visited here on 20/07/15 for our two year anniversary. We went kayaking and did the package where you play golf, Segway and sky trail. Firstly when we got there the sign posting is absolutely terrible, literally we where driving around for twenty minutes just to find the kayaking centre. We got there eventually and signed in,...

As you walk into the arena and you see the 2,000 metre rowing line you are overwhelmed with a sense of pride and excitement. The entire centre has excellent water sports facilities for F1 Powerboat, sailing, rowing, slalom etc... with 4 main water arenas each with their own audience zones even though the grass on the side is just as...

This is the place to take those aged 8 to 16 during July and August. With the option any three of ten or so different activities per day you are almost guaranteed to end up with totally exhausted youngsters. Fantastic value for money. This year is our third visit and we will be back next yesr too.

The campsite grounds are great, loads of space and playgrounds for the kids. However, the toilet block has not been updated for years. We last visited this site 2 years ago, the locks on the toilet doors were missing then and the showers were ropey to say the least. I expected this to be rectified since my last visit but... More

This place is brilliant. Plenty To keep folks busy for quite some time. The sports like whitewater rafting are overpriced so look out for any deals to make sure your not out of pocket. Nice place to walk round when the weather is nice.

Highly recommend white water rafting - really fun and enjoyed every minute of the experience. Going down the course each time just got better! All the staff are friendly and fun - the instructors add to the experience, we had George who was a great laugh and made the course even more challenging and exciting. I would definitely do it...

Really appreciated clean toilets in the main centre, and a nice tea room (less important this year than last NSR when it rained). Portaloos OK. Well run.

This place is a little gem so close to the city centre but with plenty to do my only complaint is that when there is an event on they want to charge you £5 pp to park the car. ( per person) it's crazy . There is a cafe on site which sells hot/ cold food at both the sky... More
