The boathouse, jetty and beach are accessed via paved paths either from the Village Centre or from the Lakeside Inn direction. There are benches along these routes and level space to view the lake.
The boathouse reception window is 105cm above ground level. A clipboard is available for signing documentation. The area around the boathouse and the jetty is paved with bricks.
The male, female and accessible changing rooms are accessed via the rear of the building - with shower, toilet and locker facilities.
The beach surface slopes and is made of sand. It is uneven in places.
Watersports welcomes guests with specific/individual requirements but require advanced notice.

Our staff will be happy to discuss individual requirements either by phone/email prior to your visit or on site during your stay.
