Important Information / Updates
To all our customers.
We hope you are well and looking forward to eventually getting out on the water.
23rd May Update: We are getting ready for rowboat, kayak and canoe hire!
So when we are permitted to open again we will be ready to welcome you back as soon as possible. Please note that when we do reopen, the car park will not be available.
Please follow this link for current information.
We do not take bookings for rowboats, just turn up and hire
We are open for rowboat, kayak, canoe and Electric Boat hire, 7 days a week 10am until 6pm from March until the end of August. During September and October we are open every day 10am until 5pm except Wednesdays. Please call or email to check if you are not sure.
If you just fancy 'messing about on the water' you can hire a rowboat, kayak or canoe by the hour or if you're feeling fit you can hire a canoe or kayak for a half or full day (Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays) On your return you can reward yourself with an ice cream or refreshing cold drink from our on-site kiosk open from 10am to 5pm daily.
Our kayaks are sit-on kayaks. These kayaks are more stable and easier to paddle. Why not give them a try!
Slipway for boats:
If you want to slip your own boat into the canal we make a charge to cover car parking. £5 for kayaks, canoes and rowboats and £10 for motor boats. Gates are open at 10am and shut at 6pm so you need to be back around 5:30pm. You will need a license to use your own boat on the canal and will need to show it to us before slipping in.
Prices (Minimum Hire is 1 Hour):
Lifejackets are available free of charge.
WE CAN ONLY RESERVE KAYAKS & CANOES IF HIRED FOR HALF OR WHOLE DAYS. (Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays ONLY) CALL US TO RESERVE YOURS.
If you fancy the idea of a 'mini adventure', why not try our one-way trips by canoe or kayak. (Maximum 6 single kayaks or 2 double and 4 single kayaks)
The way it works
If you know someone who enjoys the water, why not give them the gift of boating. Our vouchers can be used for any type of boating; kayaking, rowing, canoeing and narrowboat day hire or holiday hire.
Dogs are very welcome on rowboats!
