Canoeing at Paxton house
New for 2022. Canoeing has proven to be one of our most popular activities, and we are excited to be able to offer it from our new location at Paxton House. We will meet at Paxton house and paddle upriver, enjoying the beauty of the River Tweed. Expect to be on the water for roughly 2 hours during this activity, but allow 3 hours for getting in and out of kit.
When do we offer canoeing?
Our season runs from May to the end of October. We operate from Paxton house and paddle upriver. We run these trips on weekdays all through our paddling season. All available sessions will be shown on our calendar.
If you wish to book one space or have a large group and are interested in a trip, please contact us to discuss.
We will supply the canoes and your wetsuit as well as safety equipment. In warm weather, you may wish to wear your own clothes, shorts & T-Shirts.
We suggest you bring footwear that you are happy to get wet, and some snacks.
You will need a swimsuit underneath your wetsuit and a towel to dry off afterward.
The minimum age for this activity is 12yrs old.
Weather will always play a part in all activities we offer, sometimes it's too windy and on other occasions, rain has pushed the river level too high, both making it too dangerous to be on the water.
We only ever cancel sessions for safety reasons - the safety of you and our staff is paramount.
