Came here today for team building and it was great. The instructors were wonderful. Spectacular scenery. We went on the electric mountain bikes. I was a bit nervous especially on the downhill sections but was given plenty of help and encouragement. Highly recommend it.

After a walk round the lake stopped off at Life for a well earned cuppa and traybake. The cafe itself doesn't open until March and I must say the surroundings in Life are much better. Staff were very pleasant. Will call again
