Canoe hire is only available to customers staying in our holiday cottages. In fact canoe hire is INCLUDED FREE with all our holiday cottages.

Our hire canoes, manufactured by Sun Dolphin, have been chosen for their excellent stability and ruggedness - perfect for the novice canoeist. The largest of the range, the Sun Dolphin Mackinaw 156 Deluxe, features a tough polyethylene hull, a storage hatch to keep phones and keys safe, a cool box and fishing rod holders. At over 15 feet long the canoe is extremely spacious, plenty of room for two adults and a child for a days paddling.

With the hire of our canoes we provide Typhoon Buoyancy aids which we stock in all sizes. These are very lightweight, have an adjustable waistband and shoulders on the larger sizes and most importantly have the largest arm holes we have seen. This facilitates the maximum movement necessary for canoeing and kayaking. If you are looking to purchase a buoyancy jacket for a holiday or for infrequent use then we recommend Typhoon. For those of you looking to purchase a buoyancy jacket to wear regularly or for sailing club use, then when it comes to marine clothing the only name is Helly Hansen.

If your mobile phone is your life then we recommend that you purchase a waterproof phone case. These are really inexpensive and a must for any watersports activity. If you plan on a whole day canoeing then we recommend that you take a change of clothes with you. To keep these dry we suggest a dry bag.
