Rafting - Lazy River⇐Back
The River Coquet at Warkworth is the setting for this trip. The Coquet is one of Northumberlands most famous rivers and is dominated by Warkworth Castle, the former ancesterial seat of the Duke of Northumberland. This activity is ideal for groups of 6 to 8. We travel on the river exploring the bird and wildlife. There are plenty of games to play, which inveiably means getting wet.
Meeting at The Stanners, at Warkworth we enjoy a few hours looking at the sights the river has to offer. This section of the river is tidal which means the scenery is always changing, we regularly see fish leaping and birds dipping and feeding. There are herons wading and some magnificent views of Warkworth Castle and the hermits cave (as featured on Robsons Green's Tales from Northumberland) .
Our rafts take 6 to 8 people, its a great social activity for a family or group wanting some fun and games on the water.
Please note we need a minimum of 6 people on this trip and there is a maximum of 16.
