Children enjoyed an excellently instructed two day RYA 2 course 2 with Tom. There was a relaxed, friendly but very professional approach. Brilliant location, and we were lucky with wonderful weather as well - what's not to like!

We hired a canoe for an hour to explore the lake, a great experience. The hire guy was really friendly and helped us get on the water in no time. To see the lake from a different perspective was fantastic. Well worth the money.
