Explore the lake – Katakanuing
Katakanuing is the best way for a group of 2-6 to head out onto the lake. It’s cool, it’s fast and it’s fun. Everyone takes a paddle aboard the 6-man catamaran style canoe and propels the group along the water.
A very accessible craft for all ages and paddling ability. Buoyancy aids are provided for all and must be worn.
Take to the water on a Katakanu for a half hour or hour. These boats take up to 6 people and are suitable for children and adults. Everyone on the boat will be kitted out with a buoyancy aid and a paddle, meaning everyone will contribute towards the paddling building up lots of speed.
30mins – £12
60mins – £18
There are a range of ways you can enjoy canoeing on our 180-acre lake, either without or with an instructor. You can take part in a led evening or morning canoe trek, hire a canoe and head out on your own accord or book a bespoke session just for your group, developing your technique or playing games.
Hire During our opening hours, you can hire a canoe from our Boat Centre. Our canoes are designed to be paddled by up to two people. Children under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
Although there is no need to book in advance, we recommend calling ahead to check the availability of the craft. Bad weather may restrict use of canoes even if other boats are available.
£12 – 60mins
We are open for hire every weekend and every school holiday from 11:00am to 5:00pm. Please call in advance in poor weather to check availability.
