lakeside at litton lakes
What's your idea of a perfect day? Reading a book in a beautiful setting, having a picnic with the family? With carefully curated access to the lake, we make sure all of our guests have the time and space they need to enjoy this beautiful environment.
why do people use our lake?
It is sheltered, flat and peaceful. Packed with wildlife, our 1.5 acre lake is freshwater fed from a spring. We have a cafe which is perfect to warm up with a coffee or hot chocolate or cool down with one of our famous milkshakes.
what is permitted on the lake?
Stand up paddle boards
Fishing? To avoid hooks getting caught up in swimmers feet, fishing is no longer allowed.
Launching is included within your pitch cost and have priority access to the lake. You will need to check the waiver form on the board prior to use.
We have a pass system in place for visitors to the lake who wish to launch a craft or swim on the lake. Sessions are booked in half day slots 09:00 - 13:00 and 13:00 - 17;00. Please click on the button above or go to our bookings section to make your reservation & pay.
We have a local company that hires out paddle boards. We get busy, especially in summer, so it is always best to pre book your slot if you're a visitor and contact Ed at Burtonbradstock Sup directly to arrange hire. Further details on how to contact can be found on our bookings page.
The lake is very sheltered and always has flat, calm waters, so its great as an alternative when the sea is rough or cold. We are open all year round for swimming passes.
All water based activity is at own risk! We ask all water users to abide by our lake rules to ensure the environment, wildlife, and other experiences are respected. Please see our lake conditions of use here.
Any visitors wanting to sit by the lake and have a picnic are welcome, however they will need to have also purchased a 'Lake pass' (per person).
do i have to pay to use the lake if i am staying with you?
No, all guests of Litton Lakes can use the lake and its amenities. We only charge a fee for day visitors in order to limit numbers on the lake and ensure that everyone can enjoy space without being crowded.
can i bring my own sup/paddleboard or kayak?
Yes. You are welcome to bring your own craft onto the lake but it has to be small. No bigger than a small dinghy and nothing motorised.
