Things To Do: Watersports

If you're staying with us in one of our three luxury apartments, why not try your hand at some watersport activities?

The recently opened Whitemills Wake & Aqua Park is the UK's newest (and most exciting) purpose-built aqua park resort, offering a range of water-based activities for all ages. It's great fun for all the family, whether it's your first time riding, or you're experienced in the water! All participants must have signed a waiver before taking part in any activities, this can be done on their website prior to booking your session.

Being only a short 20-minute drive away from our luxury apartments, Whitemills offers; wakeboarding, aqua park sessions, children's aqua parties and open water swimming. Not heard of an aqua park? Think of a bouncy castle obstacle course on water. Although, if you're not one to get wet there is a bar and a restaurant on site too.

Thinking of trying Whitemills Wake & Aqua Park? Sessions are just £20 with wetsuits and life jackets included - it makes for the perfect day out!
