There is a selection of varied team-building activities to choose from.

The Stonecutter’s waters, two dams and 3 km of river, are fully managed and this, coupled with a generous re-stocking programme, ensures excellent fishing. 'Catch and Release’ is encouraged for all river fish, and trout caught and taken from the dams are charged for. Only fly-fishing equipment and methods are permitted, and fly-fishing clinics can be arranged. Regrettably, day visitors are not permitted to fish these waters.
