Nichol End has groups of all shapes and sizes thought the year. These include schools, scouts, church groups, birthday parties, anniversary parties, stag groups, hen parties, Christmas parties, management groups, sporting clubs etc.

We offer on the water activities, as well as a range of food options. Everything is organised around the group to suit your requirements. On the water we can have:-

  • Fun days where there are a range of activities and hire that get signed up to on the day,
  • Tuition - which can be large highly organised groups, to an informal party on an island with instructors and boats running sessions from the islands.
  • Hire - It is possible for groups to hire boats as well as have tuition - there is a discount available over the normal rate. When children are part of the group and are not accompanied by their parents we have to make a few extra checks to ensure that you comply with the AALA regulations (charities and schools are exempt, otherwise a valid AALA licence will be needed as well as insurance from the course organiser) Please contact us for advice if you are in this situation.

Food options vary from bringing your own, to informal use of our cafe, to set menus that make it easy for us to cater for larger numbers and offer you better value for money. Set menus include:-

  • BBQ at Nichol End or on an island,
  • pizza, pasta and salad buffet,
  • hot potato buffet if it is cold,
  • Soup & Bacon Butties
  • Plated main meals
  • Party menus

If you are thinking about bringing a group or having a party drop us an e-mail in the first instance (or give us a call), outlining a rough idea of your plans and we will get back to you with a set of options and costs and take it from there.

For planning purposes if you require tuition a rough idea of costs are:-

Half Day (2.5 – 3 hours) £26-£35/per person

Full Day (5-6 hours) £48-£60/per person

This will depend on activities chosen, the group size and how well your plan utilises the instructors there is also no requirement to have a half days tuition - you can have an hour or whatever you want!
