Wearing a life vest is required. Just ask and we’ll provide you with one!

Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding is a water sport that uses a board that is longer than a surfboard. The surfer uses a paddle to get around. This sport doesn’t require any experience.

We provide holidaymakers with paddles for their trips out on our six lakes so they can make the most of the domain!

Paddleboarding is fun for all ages. Reserve your half-day as soon as possible at reception. Places are limited and very popular.

If this is your first time paddleboarding, here are a few tips to get started.

Paddleboarding is easy. For first timers, we recommend rowing while you kneel on the board. This technique will get you used to balance.

Once you feel at ease, stand up using the paddle at your side.

Place yourself at the board’s midpoint, keeping your knees flexible and feet apart. To keep your balance, your feet should be perpendicular to the board on either side of the handle.

Steer using your bodyweight and the paddle.

Life vests are required and available at reception.

This activity is free and included in your stay on the domain
