Adventure Cragside

Canoe, kayak and stand up paddleboard in the heart of rural Northumberland. Join Cullercoats Bike & Kayak at Tumbleton Lake, Cragside for an adventure this summer. The lake provides a relaxed and fun paddling environment and is fringed by a grade 1-listed landscape, with pine forests and crags framing the water.

Our professional water sports coaches will help you master the basics and tell you the story of how this man-made lake came to be, as part of Lord Armstrong's ground-breaking 19th century hydro-engineering project.
