My sister and friends organised white water rafting (something ive always wanted to do) for my hen do and it was absolutely brilliant from start to finish! Our instructors were great and explained all safety aspects in detail and with humour!If u weren't... More

Went as a group of seven 50+ friends to celebrate another birthday! From the moment we arrived everything felt well organised, the staff were a delight, confident and competent. Our guide, Eric the Russian, was just wonderful. He delivered the safety briefing with enough good humour not to frighten the life out of us, clearly explained all the procedures, rules... More

What an excellent experience! The water is stone cold but I had great fun. The instructors are with you every step of the way but you need to listen to their instructions as the water current is full on. Would recommend to anyone who isn't afraid of hard work, being cold and is up for a challenge.

We hired 3 boats for our team building, and all really enjoyed it! It was pretty cold but you tend to forget about that whilst your having fun. The 'swim test' was the most terrifying bit! Staff all really great and facilities were perfect. Lockers and showers were clean.

Visited the centre for the third time on Friday 13th March with a large group - absolutely brilliant again! Great experience supported by great staff. A particular thank you to Erik the Russian - he was amazing, great instructor. If you haven't done this and are considering doing so, get yourself 8 pals, hire a raft and enjoy.......

I have been there twice recently. The first time there was no water, but having seen it 'dry' just added to the experience seeing it a week later in full flow. It was well used with a variety of new and very experienced canoeists - including some of the GB squad. There was also a group being prepared for their... More

I was coaxed into rafting by my boyfriend - I have never done anything so scary yet so awesome in my life! The worst thing was having to jump into the rapids before we were allowed to go rafting - OMG! Really glad I did this - feel so alive (and I am alive, so don't worry). Staff and instructors... More

Fabulous exciting day out! Amazing guide, Eamon who really knew his stuff and got us all excited. Really recommend hiring your own raft with friends, adds a bit more fun and competition. Thanks for a great day!

Helped by good weather, this was really good fun in a safe and well managed environment. Booking was really simple although The directions to reception could have been clearer when we arrived - just head for the largest wooden building you can see. Excellent safety briefings before actually getting in the raft. There were 9 in the raft guided by... More
