Leisure & Activities Outdoor + Active Roadford

Roadford Lake on the Devon/Cornwall border is the largest lake for watersports in the South West. Watch the video by clicking on the play button in the images.

At the lake you can enjoy a range of water-based activities including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and multi-activity days. Try our new high ropes course, the indoor climbing wall or archery. There is also a campsite adjacent to the waters edge and a licensed cafe on the opposite side of the Lake. A refreshment trailer is open most weekends from Easter to September.
