Paddle Boarding in the heart of the Peak District.

If you’re looking to get out on the water with your group on your stag or hen weekend, paddle boarding is definitely one of the most popular ways of getting involved. The stand up Paddle Boards (SUP’s) are suitable for beginners, so once you’ve gone through the basics with our Instructors on dry land you’ll be set to get out on the water.

Your group will need to be water confident to take part as you’ll be paddling on open water that’s approx 15 metres deep, although they don’t need to be able to swim as buoyancy aids are provided.

And let’s face it – part of the fun is watching your mates fall in right? It never gets old.

You can choose from single boards, 4-person boards and even 6-person boards! Whichever you choose, you’ll be belly laughing from the minute you get on one.

We’ll kit you out with wetsuits and float vests – you need to bring a towel, swimwear and some footwear that you won’t mind getting wet!


There are changing facilities and showers on site, so you can make yourselves look great again before heading to one of the lovely country pubs in the area if you fancy grabbing some food afterwards.

There is also a great café on site, and for the warmer months there are brick-style BBQ’s dotted around the reservoir that you’re welcome to use. Just bring your own charcoal and food. There’s always loads of activities going on at the reservoir, so why rush off?

Bring a cold-box with some drinks, get a BBQ lit and take in the views of the lake. Might as well watch some other people falling off the paddle boards for a bit, eh!

The reservoir is close by to loads of our other activity centres, so we can make a full day of it if you fancy. Give us a call and we’ll run through some options with you.

Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!

My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
