WOW what a venue. Our wedding day was perfect, thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome on the day and in the lead up. I cannot recommend you highly enough! We loved the venue and hope that more brides and grooms find out about it because it was perfect.

main page 2After looking around at other venues we knew from the start we wanted to have our wedding at RLSC. Just a beautiful place  with stunning views across the lake. The venue can look very special indeed. The day went really nicely with everything well organised, excellent facilities and no last minutes hiccups. There was more than enough room for a large guest list with room to relax outside to enjoy the sunset. We received glowing feedback from all our guests who all commented on the lovely setting and building. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this venue.

“A beautiful peaceful setting away from the office for our team meeting. Superb meeting room that suited our requirements and an amazing view! I would highly recommend and would like to go back!”

“We recently held a team meeting at Rudyard Sailing Club, followed by a taster sailing session.  The venue was ideal for our meeting, with everything we needed provided and nothing was too much trouble.  After a lovely lunch overlooking the lake we got the chance to get out on the water and try our hands at sailing.  We received excellent instruction and were surprised at how quickly we were able to have a go at sailing in pairs.  There was a real buzz in the office the next day, and we all felt it was an ideal opportunity to strengthen our bond as a team away from the office.  Even as a small team there are some colleagues that we each work with more than others, so this was a great opportunity to get to know people within the team that we might not normally work with closely”.
