Frolic in Rutland Water's magical outdoor playground

Rutland Water, Rutland

Rutland Water, one of Europe’s largest man-made lakes, is set in over 4,200 acres of stunning countryside, offering you a great getaway experience.

Fancy trying your hand at sailing, windsurfing or canoeing? With hire facilities and short courses at Rutland Sailing Club, Rutland 8 Yachts and Rutland Watersports, there’s plenty on offer for the experienced and inexperienced alike.

If you have never fished before but fancy learning, then a lesson with Rob Waddington from Rutland Fly Fishing Adventures is just the thing.

Enjoy some of the best views of Rutland and Rutland Water from the county's quality golf courses. Choose from Greetham Valley, Stapleford Park, North Luffenham and Rutland Water golf clubs.

Rutland offers stunning landscapes and good off-road access so horse riding is very popular, with village pubs a plenty to refuel in during your adventure.

After a day of fun simply sit and relax with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down over the lake’s shimmering waters.
