Stand up Paddle boarding - Paxton House

We introduced Stand-up Paddle Boarding on the River Coquet in 2017, and it quickly became one of our most popular activities. Now we are excited to be able to offer it from a new venue at Paxton house on the River Tweed.

The session will begin with Introductions with your guide, then you will be given your equipment and will be given an introduction to your craft.

Expect to be on the river for about two hours and allow an hour for getting in and out of equipment.

You will need a swimsuit under your wetsuit and a towel to dry off afterward.
