10 Things to do this Summer with your Family


Summer is one of the most enjoyable times of the year. The sun is shining, (well, sometimes) the weather is warmer and the long summer holidays and lighter evenings means there’s plenty of time to go on some outdoor adventures with the family.

Our lakes give so many opportunities for a great experience, on and off the water, and we are passionate about making sure families enjoy themselves and make amazing memories together.

Here are 10 things to try this summer with the family in Devon, Cornwall and Somerset:

1 – Try paddleboarding at your local lake

2 – Try whistling through a strand of grass

3 – Extend your stay and go on a camping adventure

4 – Track animal footprints

5 – Bring the bikes and go cycling

6 – Go on a mini-beast hunt

7 – Have an outdoor picnic

8 – Go stargazing on a clear night


9 – Try geocaching

10 – Explore one of our lakes by canoe

There is plenty of things for you and your family to enjoy and get stuck into this summer.
