Hired a Kata Kanu for me, my wife and 2 kids (under 8). The staff were very helpful and got us on the water in no time. The Kata Kunu was very stable and the kids were able to move around when in the water.

Hi Natasha, I'm very sorry to hear about your experience but I'm afraid this has nothing to do with us as what you described in the above is for the Cotswold Country Park and Beach (lake 32). https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g186286-d3530398-Reviews-Cotswold_Country_Park_Beach-Cirencester_Cotswolds_England.html
