If you have kids aged 9 upwards who like water sports then this is great for them. Good equipment, reasonable prices and friendly staff. Kayaking , kneeboarding etc -all good. Kids love it, nice coffee, snacks etc and really great if you go at an event time. Great atmosphere.

My husband isn't able to do much walking at present, so he was enjoyed the scenery, watching the wildlife whilst I went... More
