Paddleboard & Kayak Hire

Our water sports hire is open everyday!

  • No booking required, just turn up!
  • Open 10am Everyday

Enjoy a scenic paddle along the River Stour with our paddleboard and sit-on kayak hire. Canadian Canoes are also available on request, but experience of rescues is required. Guided tours are available during the summer, with special evening events posted on our Facebook page, such as free rescue training and guided sunset paddles.

We are not taking bookings for the watersports, but there are plenty of crafts available for hire. At most you might have to enjoy an ice-cream while you wait 20 minutes for one to become available.

Dogs are welcome with day visitors to the Watersport Centre and outside at the Coffee House, but not in overnight accommodation.

We have limited parking to enable those with their own watercraft to launch from Constable Park, but there is a free launch point in Cattawade and then paddle into us for free to get ice cream or visit the Coffee House.

If strong winds or heavy rain please call ahead to check on the day.


Our watersports are organised by Anglia Adventures.


All hire prices are per craft, per hour and includes buoyancy aids and a dry bag. Parking is free for the duration of your hire.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Age 12 and above for single user craft. Younger children are able to participate in family paddleboard hire.

Deckchairs & Ice-cream

You will find our Constable Park deckchairs placed around the Watersport Centre for you to enjoy – whether sitting with an ice-cream or waiting for friends to come back from their river trip, sit back, relax and enjoy the view!

We are pleased to stock the delicious Kelly’s of Cornwall ice-creams, as well as a selection of cold drinks and snacks. All available from our Watersport Centre.
