    Explore Llandegfedd Lake in a facilitated social session with one of our instructors.

    This is a social session, feel free to explore at your pleasure, the instructor will be available on the water at all times if you want some paddling tips.

    Your paddle session will be 1 hour followed by 30 minutes of food in the café, allowing time to change.

    As a self-launcher you bring with you your own equipment and must adhere to the self launch rules including: wearing a suitable buoyancy aid, hold your own third party public liability insurance and ensure your craft is in good working condition and used in accordance with its intended use and follow our self launch policies.

    The minimum age allowed on the water is 5 years.

    5 to 7 years old - Can be on a craft with a responsible adult aged 18+

    8 to 13 years old - Can paddle own craft, whilst supervised by a responsible adult aged 18+ on the water

    14 to 17 years old - Can paddle own craft with a responsible adult aged 18+ on site that is contactable in the case of an emergency

    Please note we only allow 1 person per paddleboard, except in the case of a child aged 5 - 13 years old. In this instance 1 child aged 5 to 13 years old can join 1 adult on a paddleboard, provided that the manufacturers maximum weight recommendation is not exceeded.


    Safety is our number one priority. In the event of poor weather conditions (e.g. strong winds or thunder and lightning) or other incidents we reserve the right to restrict water access to particular user groups, restrict the area available for activities, cancel sessions or close the lake. We will endeavour to give advance notice whenever possible; however sometimes decisions need to be made at short notice. If we close the lake, we will add a message to our website and endeavour to contact all customers impacted to offer the opportunity to reschedule their session or receive a refund.
