“Just wanted to thank you for making us all so welcome and providing such a great club for the Sapperton kids. Your instructors do you proud and you also make us parents very welcome - especially this evening when we warmed a few sausages and enjoyed a small glass of fizz after the last session. As a family we also use waterland on nice weekends with our inflatable kayaks and have brought friends with us who always comment on the lovely setting and relaxed but safe environment - far less commercial feeling than some of the other lakes. Thanks again Annabel.”


“Thank you, very happy with my Windsurf lesson, great tuition and advice. Will definitely return to try again !! Cheers .”


“Thanks for looking after our two at the Adventure Zone today. They certainly enjoyed themselves, and you broadened their horizons.
They would like to see you next year for the extreme wet course.
Eunice and Brian Wells.”


“We visited the lake today with my son and his friends to celebrate his birthday. We'd just like to say we had a great time and were so well looked after. I'd particularly like to thank Jo who made us feel very welcome and took care of us from the minute we arrived until we left.

Dawn Tye (and family and friends).”


“I just wanted to say thank you so much for making our kayaking experience on Saturday so brilliant! It was the perfect activity and I know all the girls thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the slide!! The games were really fun and even those of us that were a little hesitant got stuck-in! I know the hen had a fantastic day.

All the best


“Our pupils really enjoyed their experience with you last week and our staff were also impressed.”


“Thank you both for last night. The youngsters had a great time and want to do it again in the summer holidays. Special thanks for the loan of the wetsuits, made it more bearable for the smaller ones :).”
