Manley Mere

Manley Mere is a family run business operating since 1984. Originally a dairy farm, the owners Mike and Jane Houlbrooke decided to make more use of their land with the love of watersports. As the years past the centre has developed and grown into a multi watersport’s and land activity hub with a family friendly atmosphere. The centre has seen many changes over the years but at its core is still a powerful love for adventures, family and friends.

Manley Mere

Our 40 acre lake offers a comfortable size for a wide variety of watersports. The man made lake has undergone two extensions to create the lake we have today. The lakes depth is managed to maintain an average depth of 10ft with certain areas of the lake being as deep as 16ft. This provides a safe learning environment for  variety of water users.
