“Perfect for Windsurfers”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Clean showers, although many are communal. Great cafe. Very friendly and helpful staff. Camping is a bit on the pricey side but if you're in to windsurfing, it's no myth that it's one of the windiest and best inland venues. Pick decent weather and you won't be disappointed.

Loads if beautiful scenery, beaches, bike rides for those who don't sail.

Highly recommended.

“A lovely place to do a sponsored walk”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

I was challenged to do a 5 mile walk and a friend suggested Stithians Lake. It was ideal. and a beautiful day out. Will be going back again and taking a picnic next time.

“Great fun for using up energy”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

We went (2 adults, 3 kids) to take the children kayaking it was £15 each for a 2 hour hire of any equipment. The kids are 11,12 and 13 so went out by themselves. They had great fun, all equipment (wetsuit, helmet and life vest) included in hire. Very easy, receptionist and all staff very helpful and patient ( we tried nearly all helmets to get the right size), the only issue was that 2 hours for that age was too long, it's a shame there wasn't just the option for a 1 hour slot. However we had a nice time watching them from the cafe, the coffees were very nice. Another great thing was the showers to warm the kids up. All in all very easy from parking to, hire, to changing facilities.

We are really glad you enjoyed our fantastic facilities. It sounds like you took advantage of one or our special half term offers for equipment hire. It is also possible to hire Kayaks from £10 per hour.

We hope to see you on the water soon.

“Better in the sunshine”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

A good place for a wild and windy tramp. There are pubs and places to eat that overlook the lake (which is, I think, reservoir - hence the expression "Stithian's Dam Gray") and its a surprisingly good place to windsurf, when available. Quite vigorous.
