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.

All the fun with no drama

I used HDK events when organising my friends long-awaited hen party in Bakewell at the weekend. Greg was fantastic from the word go and had the patience of a saint supporting me throughout the booking process! If you want an easily organised, unique trip, organised in a chilled out environment, Hard Days Knight is the company for you.

Amazing from first contact with Greg to leaving the property on the final day. Organising a large group weekend away was difficult after the country reopened after Covid but Greg made everything seem easy. From finding us the perfect location for a house, booking us a great event to the finer details of pub/restaurant recommendations.
