Had so much fun winter paddling in a canoe along the beautiful beaulieu river for my boyfriends birthday. We soon warmed up once we were paddling and our brilliant instructor Leander brought the hot chocolate. Would highly recommend and will be rebooking very soon.

Booked at short notice for a winter paddle Saturday, 5th Jan. Friendly staff, well organised, good kit, enjoyable 2 hour paddle up and the Beaulieu River. Good way to clear the cobwebs, see the river and get some exercise.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river. Daisy was not only an excellent canoe instructor but full of information on the local area – especially the array of birds and wildlife. Very much enjoyed the creeks – a lovely and refreshing day out!
