FAQ

Can I have Picnics & BBQs?


These are NOT currently allowed, due to our Covid policy. Unfortunately to keep inline with social distancing we need people to arrive, participate and then leave. Please no picnics and BBQ’s anywhere on site. This includes the car park and anywhere on the holiday park.




Where do I park?


Please follow the large sign at the entrance, which leads you to our car park. It is very hard to miss it! Do not drive down to the lake, this is only for disabled parking, staff and emergency access. Sometimes for security reasons the holiday park have to close the barrier, if it is closed please follow the instructions on the barrier to gain entry.




Do you have Disabled Parking?


Yes we do, when you arrive at the main entrance, instead of following the large Wild Shore sign to the right, please go straight on and follow the disabled parking signs. You can then park right next to the lake.




Where do I get changed?


All our indoor space is currently closed due to our Covid policy (apart from toilets). But we have outdoor changing cubicles, or you can get changed using towels and ponchos, like you would at a beach, or get changed at your car if you have your own wetsuit.

Yes we do.




Are there lockers?


We have outdoor lockers with cleaning stations located next to them. You can use the cleaning product to give them a quick spray before you use one.

All children aged 8 to 15 must get signed in by an adult at check in, but then the adult can chill on the beach and drink coffee :) On main lake, under 16 must be accompanied by an adult on the lake.





Do you do Discounts?


Unfortunately this year, we can not offer any discounts. Firstly we try to price our activities as affordable and in-expensive as possible. Secondly due to Covid we have an even shorter season than normal and are operating at a reduced capacity. Whilst we would love to offer discounts to our amazing keyworkers, NHS staff and services, etc, this year it is just not possible.




What Happens in Poor Weather?


If there is poor weather, we will contact you to postpone or refund your session. Please do not call or message us to check that we will open in adverse weather. It is extremely rare that we have to cancel for poor weather, it is generally only a thunder and lighting storm that means we have to stop our activities.
