A lovely way to potter about on the river on a sunny afternoon and the people who run it are charming and helpful.

My husband and I went there today as it was so warm and sunny. Staffs were nice and very helpful. Even though it was our first time kayaking, it wasn't difficult at all. We hired a boat for an hour and really enjoyed our time there. Would love to do it again.

This is a brilliant boat hire in the centre of the town along it's idyllic river. The children's canoeing sessions are great fun and very good value for money. Everyone's friendly and helps you out a lot if you've never done it before and you always feel in safe hands.
Hiring a boat is definitely the best way to see the area around here in my eyes. You're far away from noise and roads and the peaceful tranquility up or down river is just unbeatable. The views across the meadows are fantastic, and although it's peaceful, it's never dull. We hired a motorboat once and it was actually quite a nerve-racking experience trying hard to remember that you point in the opposite direction of where you want to go and that the riverbank's always nearer than you you think.
We strongly recommend this attraction to anybody in the area, don't' miss it!

Thank you so much! We had such a fantastic time - really couldn't have asked for more. We were really impressed by your disability awareness and the fact you have a wheelchair accessible boat, too. Friendly, helpful, safety conscious and a super setting. Thoroughly recommended. If you don't believe me, take a look at my husband's happy face (he's the one wearing a Dr Seuss t-shirt, the big kid!).
