There is a lake on site that is approximately 115 m long x 40m wide with an island in the middle. A floating jetty acts as a launch point for the 6 rowing boats and the 15 paddle boats that you will have use of. We also have a large flat bottomed and an inflatable safety boat that we provide for you.
Users must never approach the lake without first donning a buoyancy aid. There are numerous buoyancy aids of various sixes from toddler through to large adult available.
The lake is approximately 2m deep (5-6 ft) across its area apart from a small ledge that extends out from the side all around the lake by about 1.0 to 1.5m. The island drops to full depth at its edge.
There is a slip way available for launching your own Dinghy’s, Canoes or Stand-Up Paddle Boards. You are welcome to use these on the lake at your own risk providing you have suitably qualified personnel to manage these activities. TRAC do not have instructors nor provide any of the equipment for this.
You are responsible for managing your own activities within our guidelines and for ensuring that you take suitable precautions as directed by appropriate risk assessment and in accordance with your own Public Liability Insurance (PLI).
Raft building equipment in the form of wooden staves of various sizes, ropes and plastic floats are available for challenge and team building activities on the lake.
Please note that due to the extreme cold over the winter months the lake will be closed between approximately 01 November and 31 March. Outside of these times user discretion should be exercised before using the lake.
The lake is stocked with a variety of fish including Carp, Loach and Bream. Although we don’t usually open up the site for external fishermen, any of the hiring group who hold a national rod licence are welcome to fish the lake. External use for competitions or group fishing activities may be considered. Please contact the manager to discuss your requirements if this is of interest.
