Active Adventure




Feeling energetic? Have some fun on the water at Pugneys Watersports Centre & Country Park. With the beautiful remains of Sandal Castle as a back-drop, Pugneys is a great place to get some paddle power on the go and have a splash around while taking in some of the lovely views around the lake.

Don't know your kayaks from your canoes? Kayaking is where the user sits in the craft and uses a paddle with a blade at both ends. Canoeing is where the user kneels and uses a paddle with the blade at only one end. If you're not sure which you prefer, try both.

You'll find a great selection of Kayaks and Canoe available to hire, as well as a range of courses on different craft, pop into the Watersports Centre to find out more.
