We are ONLY taking card payments this year. Payment for the trip should be made in full at the time of booking. Additional product purchased can be paid for through the website shop or over the phone on 0779 4321 827.
Due to smaller group sizes we recommend you book at least one week in advance during school holidays.
Please arrive at the boatshed to meet your guide at least 15 minutes before your kayak adventure. Please allow for a 10 minute stroll through the hotel gardens from the carpark to the boatshed on the foreshore. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wsymk3IRng&t=1s
Toilet - There is a toilet at the foreshore next to the boatshed our customers can use.
Leaving belongings - we have a boatshed and kit room where you can leave your belongings whilst you are out on the water. We have shelving, but no lockers and it is a shared space and so please leave any valuables at home or in the car. We are not liable for the loss of any property.
Refreshments - the hotel is now open to our customers for light lunches served 12-2pm and afternoon teas served 3-5pm but you must call 01326 250288 and book a table in advance.
We are unable to hand out our reusable water bottles, but we can refill yours if you bring your own.
Cameras / phones: We recommend you leave cameras and phones on the shore and enjoy the kayaking experience. Our guides take photos of you on the kayak adventure which are shared on social media and you can buy a copy of them on a usb stick for £15, which are posted to your home address. If you do want to bring your own cameras / phones please bring something to attach it to yourselves as they can easily got lost in the river!
