So today we went Paddleboarding on Tittesworth Reservoir. I have borrowed a child to keep Charlie amused (or rather to be cheeky to me in front of!!) and as the temperatures were set to continue to be high, I booked this activity a few weeks ago.
The reservoir is only 30 minutes drive from the cottage but makes sure you go through Longnor on the way and as you descend the switch back road you’ll see stunning views of Chrome Hill and the Dove valley.
When we arrived the Reservoir was alarmingly low but there were still plenty of people having fun in kayaks and canoes. We were issued with our life vests, paddles and off we went. It is bliss to be on the water in hot weather and although the Reservoir was restricted simply due to the water levels, it was lovely for the girls to have a splash and “fall in” repeatedly.
Definitely a fun activity and highly recommended by 2 twelve year olds. And it was reasonably priced too at £10 per hour for each paddleboard. Click here for more info Tittesworth Watersports
On the way back we went via Hartington – a very pretty little village with a rather nice looking pub which looks worthy of experimentation….. watch this space 😉🍻
As an update to the cottage availability, I have had a nightmare with my bed supplier and if there is one thing I cannot rent the cottage without, it’s a bed!! The good news is everything should be in place over the next week and I am confident it will be available thereafter. If anyone is interested in the following dates please let me know:
10th – 21st August – any dates but a single booking only
24th – 31st August – any dates but a single booking only
