Great fun, we had two paddle boarders and two in kayaks. We enjoyed it so much we were able to stay on for a further hour. The office was well run, was very well organised and everyone was polite and helpful

Had a great stop here for ice creams by the marina for half an hour with my husband. The staff were all really friendly - great place. Toilets just needed regularly checking as weren’t very clean when we went.
