There are lots of food & drink stall too. (Please note there is a minimum age of 8 years for windsurfing, dingy, kayak & SUP).

Unfortunately we are fully booked this weekend. However, if you are visiting the area and are looking for accommodation, then why not consider a stay at Puddle Cottage? The 4 star self catering cottage is located in the charming village of Edith Weston on the South shore of Rutland Water and is also within 8 miles of the market towns of Oakham, Stamford and Uppingham. The cottage can comfortable sleep 2 people in 1 bedroom (which can be presented as either a super king sized bed or two full size single beds) and includes facilities such as dishwasher, tumble dryer and a flat screen TV and free WIFI for our guests. Well behaved dogs are also very welcome.
