Came here to complete by PADI and begin pleasure diving. Beautiful surroundings and an awesome place to dive. The children loved it too and we'll be back for years to come I'd imagine.

Stoney is a good place to go if you are newly qualified diver or and experienced diver. There is different levels to dive at with something to see at each level. If you are really luck you may also spot Nessie on your dive.

Came here for a quiet lunch, something a bit different over looking the water, great food but awful staff making the experience very unwelcoming, the manager got our order wrong and when we went back to swap our drinks he made it out to be our fault and was very rude about the matter. As a result I wouldn't recommend... More

I have been to Stoney Cove a few times and it's a great place to dive in the UK. The site is so large that even when the car park is overflowing you don't come across that many other divers in the water. The facilities are great with large, very hot (just what is needed) changing rooms, a snack bar... More

My wife and I have visited Stoney Cove a few times over the past year and have yet to have had a negative experience. The staff are kind and helpful in the shop and air filling station. The site is clean and there are interesting things to see while diving. Visibility in the shallow areas can be quite poor due... More

Including a very well stocked dive shop and service departement, a dive school with heated pool, air and gas fills, a pub and lake with underwater attractions and sizeable wrecks, Stoney Cove has for years been one of my favorite inland dive sites. I do try to avoid weekends where it can get quite crowded. One of the main appeals... More

I was amazed by jow friendly and helpful the staff were, especially the guys in the air station. The visibility in the lake was fantastic compared to where I have been in thr past (3 or 4 metres) but loads of regulars were saying it was an unusually bad that day (07.03.15). I'll be going back again soon.

A great weekend, a decent training site with enough challenge to make it a real experience, and a lovely meal afterwards!
