Time to have fun

Watersports & Activities

Our location in far west Cornwall is all about the water; the lake, river and sea is just waiting for you to jump right in with the Children’s Sailing Trust on hand at Trevassack to help where needed. Learn how to sail, have fun in a kayak, jump on a paddleboard or try wild swimming – our staff are experienced with all abilities and disabilities so the whole family can have an active adventure holiday enjoying watersports in Cornwall.

You can join a group session, have a dedicated one-to-one lesson or book a session for the whole family. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, contact us and we’ll put together a package for you. 



It gets a lot colder and therefore quieter on the lake from November to March so if you plan to visit then, do get in touch to discuss watersport options in advance as the lake isn’t open every day, instead we will offer bespoke options just for you!

Discover, Explore, Enjoy


Teaching children how to get out on the water and have fun while doing it is at the heart of what we do, and Trevassack Lake has a variety of watersport options for you to get involved in. The Lake’s sheltered location means that conditions are better for learners and beginners, along with those looking to polish up their skills.

We are passionate about providing high quality, accessible watersports activities for ALL at Trevassack Lake, and offer outstanding disabled facilities and a wide range of specialist equipment.
