Excellent experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. We were allowed to explore the Lake and it was a great fun experience that the dog loved too.

This was a brilliant little find. My husband and I wanted to do something a bit different and this was to take a self hire boat out for an hour, you can choose between 1 or 2 hours. I think 1 hour is more than enough for us, if the weather is good 2 hours would be great. You book online which is straight forward and then you go down to the hire place and get a safety briefing. They fit you for your life jackets and then you get a talk about how to drive boat. It was all very straight forward and a lot of fun. Prices are good we thought.

We enjoyed an amazing day at the beginning of October 2021. It was a special birthday for my husband and he had an absolutely amazing time. The staff were friendly and informative. Even though it was raining the majority of the time we had long enough spells of sunshine to thoroughly enjoy the hire and take some great photos. The boat was very manageable 'Gloria' and we were pleased with this option as it is a nice vessel for memorable photos and although bigger than the standard models, it's just as easy to manoeuvre and touch of class in terms of boat furnishings. Definite recommendation and value for money, whatever the weather.
