Cheddar Watersports offers unbeatable family fun at the beautiful and picturesque Cheddar Reservoir. Nestled between Axbridge and Cheddar, the 265 acre Cheddar Reservoir is busting with fantastic activities and events for the whole family to enjoy. The Cheddar Reservoir is home to the Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club, which helps people of all ages learn and enjoy sailing, windsurfing and paddle sports. Recognised as a RYA Training Centre, the picturesque reservoir offers a friendly and informal environment at one of the leading sailing clubs in the South West of England.
